We learn in a midrash that when our ancient Rabbis were asked: how do we guarantee the survival of the Jewish people?, their simple reply was “go to the houses of worship and study, go to the synagogues and listen.
If you do not hear the voices of children chanting and learning, we will not survive. But, if you hear the voices of children engaged in Jewish learning, we will endure forever!”
The Charles Pick Religious School teaches Jewish and Universal values to develop great character traits for life: respect, kindness, generosity, and determination.
Our school’s philosophy is based on a God-centered philosophy. We are a Reform synagogue that believes in a God that responds to prayer and in a God with whom we can talk. And we encourage our teachers to teach this God-centered philosophy. We have therefore assembled a staff of trained professional educators, who believe that EVERY child is entitled to a Jewish education, no matter what challenges he or she may face.
