Welcome

Welcome to Temple Sinai's Mark L. Haberkorn Religious School, where learning is fun and children thrive. 

We offer a warm and nurturing environment where students of all ages can come together to form a community. We value connections and strive to create meaningful relationships among students and families. We help our learners develop friendships--- not only in the classroom, but also through social opportunities and family experiences throughout the year. 

With an emphasis on values, holidays, customs, and heritage and students will gain a deeper understanding of how Judaism can inform and enhance their daily lives. Because we honor each individual student, we encourage them to explore and embrace their personal sense of Jewish identity. 

This year, we are thrilled to offer tuition-free education at the Mark L. Haberkorn Religious School for all Temple Sinai members. This significant decision reflects our deep commitment to Jewish learning and our mission to make quality religious instruction accessible to everyone. We are able to offer tuition-free education through generous gifts made possible by The Alan H. and Judy L. Bachman Foundation; Samantha, Scott and Emmett Johnson; and the Robinson/Frankoff Fund.

If you have any questions about our program, please contact Director of Education, Zoe Levy, by submitting the form at the bottom of this page.

We look forward to sharing our joy of Jewish learning with you and your children.

School Goals

The Three Pillars

Temple Sinai's Mark L. Haberkorn Religious School is built on three foundational pillars: Judaic Studies, Hebrew, and Sinai Connections. Judaic Studies offer an in-depth understanding of Jewish history, traditions, values and religious practices, offering a strong connection to heritage. Hebrew Studies provides comprehensive language instruction, enabling students to engage with sacred texts, prayer examination and exploration, providing a foundation for competent and confident Hebrew learners beyond their B’Mitzvah experience. Sinai Connections promotes experiential learning through family and informal social settings, all the while contributing to our sense of community. Together, these pillars contribute to our overall mission of continuing to serve our Temple Sinai families through an environment that nurtures intellectual development, cultural fluency, and a strong sense of community.

Judaic Studies (K-12th Grade)

Students will explore topics such as community building, history, holidays, Jewish identity, and rituals, and sacred texts. Through a blend of formal and informal learning, including music, movement, and Mishpacha (Family) Programs, students will gain insight and practical skills.

K-7th Grade students will meet on Sunday mornings (9:30 AM to 12 noon), while 8th Grade students will meet on Wednesday afternoons (5-6 PM) for Judaic Studies. 9th-12th Grade students are invited to join Sinai High, which meets periodically on Wednesday afternoons (5-6 PM). These informal, interactive classes will include discussions with Rabbi Baden, explorations on timely topics, and special activities. 


Hebrew (K-7th Grade)

Our Hebrew Studies program begins as early as kindergarten with the integration of Hebrew Through Movement method on Sunday mornings. Starting in 3rd Grade, students will attend an additional day of Hebrew learning on Wednesday afternoons, which includes innovative Hebrew instruction, prayer, and Israel. 3rd-6th Grade students will be placed in cohorts according to the students' Hebrew abilities and backgrounds. 7th Grade students will focus on liturgy and social action.

Wednesdays begin with an optional snack and social time at 4:15 PM. Students convene for T'filah (an interactive worship experience) at 4:30 PM, and then continue with classroom instruction and activities until pick-up at 6 PM.


Sinai Connections (Social Programs and Youth Group)

In addition to the traditional classroom setting, Temple Sinai's Mark L. Haberkorn Religious School offers a diverse array of informal and social programs designed to enrich the student experience. K-5th Grade students will enjoy family outings to places such as the Discovery Museum, roller rink, and other fun spots in town. Older students will be part of our youth groups: Jr. SVTY for 6th-7th Grade, and SVTY for 8th-12th Grade. These youth groups provide students with a chance to engage with peers and mentors in a supportive environment. The programs emphasize the importance of building a sense of community and connecting with friends outside of "normal" synagogue activity.
