Religious School

Finally, a Hebrew School that’s as fun as soccer practice!

Congregation Gates of Heaven keeps Jewish learning relevant to our student’s lives. The CGOH curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in Judaism and the tools to live their lives as ones who set the example for others in repairing the world—making our communities a better place. 

Our goal is to plant the seeds of life-long learning through meaningful exploration, critical thinking skills and hands-on-learning with both classes and families.
