Hebrew Buddy of the Week is back! Our Hebrew school students learn tefila in duos, with an older student or mentor helping a younger one. Every week a pair is spotlighted and their picture is posted outside the Temple office. Congrats, Claire & Oliver!

Video prayer library

Students can use the video prayer library to master prayers they're learning in Hebrew school. Watch over 50 videos of Cantor Sharlein following the Hebrew while reading & chanting prayers Temple Sholom style. Ask school staff for the student login.
