The Adath Jeshurun Religious School is a Framework of Excellence School under the guidelines of the United Synagogue For Conservative Judaism. We are privileged to serve our members whose children attend grades K through 10 in various public and private school systems.

Our Elementary department meets two times a week during which students are exposed to Bible, Values, Hebrew Language and Prayer, Social Studies and much more. We have an elective program for our students allowing them time during the week to have learning experiences they would not ordinarily have. Some of our students sharpen their prayer leading skills during this time. Others learn about cooking according to the laws of Kashrut, always with tasty results. Our students attend weekly Minyanim and help to lead our Jr.Congregation program on Shabbat mornings. At AJ our students also learn to read Torah and become Torah readers for the AJ community.

Our High School students have their choice of three tracks. They can participate in a series of seminars on different topics such as Ethics, Law, Israel and more. The smaller classes allow in depth study and discussion. Some of our students choose our Ulpan track which focuses on Hebrew Language through games, stories, and dialogue. These students also combine with seminar students at certain times giving them exposure to other topics of interest. Finally, many of our students choose our Community Service Track which meets on Tuesday night for a learning component. Sundays are days dedicated to Social Action projects both on an individual and group basis. There are walk-a–thons, working at homes for the elderly, boxing food for the Jewish Relief Agency and other opportunities to participate in Tikkum Olam. Our High School students also have special programs with other High Schools and participate in community activities.
