At Congregation Kol Ami Religious School we strive to empower our students about:

  • Jewish Living: Learn and become familiar with Jewish holidays and customs.  Make Judaism come alive by participating in these rituals.  Understand that we have a responsibility to perform personal acts of g'milut chasadim to make the world a better and holier place. 
  • Torah: Believe that Torah is an ongoing dialogue between the text and its students. Torah is real in our daily lives; it goes with us wherever we are.  It teaches us the history of our people, our Mitzvot-our laws and ethics.
  • Hebrew: the language of Torah, prayer, and the modern state of Israel
  • Prayer: How to pray from the Siddur; how to pray from the heart; how to pray for the community; how to pray for oneself. 

And we encourage our families:

  • To be involved in Jewish education-their children's and their own.
  • To celebrate Judaism in their homes.
  • To participate in Jewish community and synagogue life.
  • To be an integral part in your child's education.

Students learn not only facts and tangible subject matter, but also have the chance to explore their values, identities and feelings.  One of our chief objectives is to help students learn to celebrate their Jewish identity. This identity will enable students to interact in the modern world as Jews, proud of their Jewish heritage.  

The success of our school is evident as so many of our Jewish teens return to become Madrichim (teacher’s assistants) in our school.  Madrichim not only act as role models for younger students but continue to learn in the Confirmation classes and beyond.

It is our desire that through participation in our school our students and their families will be drawn closer to Congregation Kol Ami and become more deeply involved in its many and varied activities. If, at any time, you have questions about the Religious School, please don't hesitate to contact our Education Director.

If you have any questions, please email our Director of Religious Education, Sabrina Nail at education@kolamifrederick.org.
