Welcome! The religious school at Agudas Achim is a place where your child can meet other Jewish kids and learn about Jewish values through hands-on projects, in a lively, student-centered classroom setting. We welcome Jewish students of all backgrounds, family configurations, and gender identities.
Agudas Achim’s religious school meets on Sundays from 9:15-12:15 during the fall and spring academic semesters.
In addition, students preparing for B-Mitzvah work one-on-one with the rabbi and the principal. These meetings are scheduled individually generally scheduled Mondays and Wednesdays between 4:00-6:30
On Sundays, parents are warmly invited to attend Hineh Ma Tov time, a time for singing and announcements, at drop-off time (from 9:15-9:30) and to join their child at 12:00 for a brief, student-led service at the end of the day.
