Temple Emanu-El’s Religious School Committee (RSC) serves as liaison between the Board of Trustees and the Religious School Administration. The goal is to address the evolving needs of the students and their families within the framework of the Temple’s overall mission.

Together, Rabbi Marc Ekstrand, Cantorial Soloist Sherry Barnes, the Religious School Co-Administrators and other members of the Religious School Committee (a volunteer sampling of the school’s staff and parents) work together to aim to enhance the religious education experience for our students, their families and prospective students and members. Through the network between the Religious School Committee, the Board of Trustees, the Communications Committee and the Membership Committee, our Temple will no doubt be able to capitalize on great opportunities which arise through a strong dialogue between these groups.

We look for ways in which the religious school curriculum can create a sense of community at our Temple so more learning, varied experiences and connections can materialize across generations, not only among the children, but also between the families within our congregation and the greater community.
