About Us:

The Sunday School for Jewish Studies is a privately-operated, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting positive Jewish identity among its students and their families. Our mission is to foster a meaningful Jewish identity for our children, filled with celebration, community responsibility, knowledge and inquisitiveness. The School is not affiliated with any particular branch of Judaism.

The curriculum is structured to provide a total picture of Jewish experience and on each Sunday morning the children explore customs, Hebrew, biblical literature, ethics, prayers, current events, holidays and history with an emphais on g'mulit chassadim - deeds of loving kindness and social action.

Classes are taught by a staff of qualified and experienced teachers.

Each family's definition of and approach to Judaism is respected. The Sunday School welcomes new students in every grade, regardless of the student's prior Jewish education, Hebrew training or Jewish observance experience.

Our open enrollment policy and community High Holy Day services are gateways to Jewish education that recognize families diverse priorities and commitments.

Classes meet weekly for grades 1- 7 and on a monthly schedule for children in kindergarten.

LOCATION AND HOURS: Sunday School classes are held at the Oak Hill Middle School, 130 Wheeler Road, Newton, MA. All classes meet on Sunday morning from 9:45 a.m. - 12noon. The school year runs from September through May.
