Kesher Zion

Morris Hassel Religious School

Mission Statement: “To provide a student-friendly and parent-involved environment for the learning of Hebrew literacy, Jewish history, customs and liturgy with the goal of nurturing children in their development as Conservative Jews.  Educational techniques and materials should develop skills for Jewish living at home, synagogue and community with a special emphasis on the performing of mitzvoth; prepare students for becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah; and foster a life-long commitment to the Jewish people.”


Kesher Zion Synagogue offers religious education for children kindergarten through seventh grade.  Students can learn at Reform Congregation Oheb Sholom on Sunday mornings from 9:00AM to 12:00PM and Tuesday afternoons from 4:15PM to 6:00PM, depending on their age.  Alternatively, students can meet in small groups with the Rabbi.  Students are required to attend worship services with a family member 4 times per school year.

Tuition fees are:

$530 per student per year for one day at RCOS or with the Rabbi

$910 per student per year for two days at RCOS or with the Rabbi (grades 3-7)

Preparing for a bar or bat mitzvah is an important part of religious education at Kesher Zion.  Parents preparing for that special day can consult the Bar and Bat Mitzvah Handbook.
