Religious Studies Program

 

The Village is a pluralistic school and the teaching of Judaism – its culture, traditions and practices – is a major priority. Especially catering to the immigrant population from the Former Soviet Union (F.S.U.) which come to Israel with no religious background, the importance of Judaism must be emphasized. This is accomplished through an extensive learning program involving classes, workshops, field trips, Sabbath and holiday observance, bar/bat mitzvah training and celebration. We have also established a conversion course for those students who would like to convert. The conversions are recognized by the Israeli rabbinate.
