Our Hebrew School services children from 5 years of age through 14. In addition to providing structured classes for grades Aleph through Hay, we also offer pre-primary and primary programs.
Each grade leads our congregation in service, including Friday night, Shabbat morning, Havdalah and weekday evening services. Our dedicated staff, many of whom have been with us since our inception, provides our children with a deep appreciation of their Jewish identity and an understanding of our rich heritage through the study of language, Bible, culture, Torah, Israel, history, traditions and holiday study. The Gimmel, Daled and Hay students (5, 6 & 7th grade), have required subjects and can choose 2 elective subjects ranging from computers, ethics and Talmud.
We encourage our graduates to continue their Hebrew education by offering them partial scholarships to SHMA. SHMA is a regional Hebrew high school, where our students join with students from other synagogues to further their religious study.
Our staff are all certified teachers with over 20 years of Jewish education teaching experience. They teach with a love for Torah. Our curriculum has a progressive style.
We have Junior Congregation, special events both spiritual and secular community activities. We also offer Adult Education and our synagogue is currently involved in working with Israel and a grant geared towards the environment. Using internet technology we communicate with a sister school in Israel. One of the highlights of our members’ religious experience is when their children are called to the Torah as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. At Manetto Hill Jewish Center we understand the importance of this day and the religious significance of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. In addition to chanting the Haftorah, many of our children read from Torah and lead the congregation in services.
Our rabbi works with each child to ensure that when his or her special day arrives, the child is prepared, confident, and understands the meaning and responsibilities of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

SHMA is a regional Hebrew high school, where our students join with students from other synagogues to further their religious study. Our Adult Education programs at Institute for Adult Jewish Studies encourage our membership to participate in a wide variety of educational topics ranging from archeology to the more traditional educational courses.
There are also many opportunities to learn within the confines of MHJC. Our monthly “Rabbi’s Conversation Circle” sessions take place immediately following our Shabbat morning services. Please check our monthly calendar for upcoming dates, as they vary from month to month.
