Where Jewish Experiences Create Jewish Lives!

Shaloha and welcome to Temple Emanu-El’s School of Jewish Studies where you will find warm and enriching Jewish learning opportunities for students grades K-12 and their families. The School of Jewish Studies (SJS) is the umbrella department that encompasses all of Temple Emanu-El’s youth and young family experiences under the singular notion: “Na’aseh V’nishmah” – “We will do and we will understand.” This biblical precept, along with the JEC educational vision are driving an educational shift from textbook based learning to experiential learning and opportunities for all youth and young families.

The SJS Educational Vision

At the SJS, our educational opportunities support and challenge our learners in order for them to become educated Jews who:

  • Connect with their Jewish community both here in Honolulu and around the world.
  • Integrate the cultural, moral and spiritual values of Judaism into their lives.
  • Cherish the language, history, text and homeland of the Jewish people.

With these three cornerstones, SJS is providing a new standard of excellence in holistic Jewish education through immersive learning experiences for all ages.
