Temple De Hirsch Sinai offers a variety of educational opportunities for members of all ages, cultivating life-long connections and relationships.
Early Childhood Education
Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool (JRM) encourages children to learn through discovery, exploration, creative thinking and problem solving. Our developmentally-appropriate, child-centered program prepares children for kindergarten and for life in a warm and nurturing environment. Temple also offers a range of activities, both at Temple and in other locations, so that families with young children can join together for family friendly events. Our offerings begin at birth and continue through pre-kindergarten.
Bridge Family Religion School
The Bridge Family Religion School at Temple De Hirsch Sinai is a vibrant Reform Jewish educational experience for students and families from Kindergarten through 12th grade, inspiring a lifelong dedication to Jewish learning and community. We offer learning opportunities for students and their families that infuse the modern issues of our times with a deep and relevant connection to our history, our traditions, and our culture.
Temple De Hirsch Sinai offers a variety of programming created specifically for the youngest members of our community each and every month. Designed to empower our youth to live Reform Judaism, these programs create challenging, fun, relevant, and meaningful Jewish experiences. Social, social action, and informal educational experiences connect participants to a safe and supportive community while offering Jewish content in new and exciting.
Engagement in synagogue and Jewish home life creates the building blocks of Jewish identity; immersive experiences transform those formative pieces into an authentic whole person. Temple is proud to send more kids to Jewish camps than any other synagogue in the nation and provides camp scholarships to our member children so that all may join in this enriching summer experience.
From Introduction to Judaism to adult b’nai mitzvah classes, we have an abundance of educational options for adults and seniors. Whether you’re interested in hearing a short lecture over a meal, enrichment alongside your child in Religion School, or more serious Hebrew and Torah study, we have a place for you to learn and connect.
Temple De Hirsch Sinai libraries – the Samuel Rosenberg Memorial Library (Seattle), Spitzer Family Library (Bellevue), Benjamin Zukor Children’s Library (Seattle & Bellevue) — house over 10,000 volumes covering a wide range of Judaic topics including Bible, spirituality, history, holidays, cooking, fiction and much more.
