We are proud of the extent and variety of our Learning Programmes here at SPS, and there are many learning opportunities for young and old alike.
The teachers at Religion School aim to provide a warm and friendly
environment for all our children.
The aim of our syllabus is that children in the religion school will
gain the knowledge of what it means to be a Liberal Jew, the skills to
follow a Liberal Jewish lifestyle, an appreciation of our Jewish values
and a real proficiency with and deep understanding of the Hebrew of our
prayers and Torah.
They will also realise that they are part of a religion that
encompasses many different branches of Judaism.
Ultimately, with a secure identity, they can participate fully in the
open society as confident Jews.
With these objectives always in mind, the School's syllabus covers The
Bible and Jewish literature, customs and traditions, festivals,
Shabbat, life cycle, history and Hebrew.
Children join Religion School at 4 years old and continue to 15 years
old after completing their Kabbalat Torah.
