Welcome to the School of Jewish Studies at Temple Emanu-El!


Shaloha and welcome to the School of Jewish Studies! Our PreK-12th grade youth program promotes an education that will inspire our children to become committed Jewish adults. Our educational process includes classroom time, holiday programming, speakers, family activities, adult education and more. Parents are encouraged to become involved and participate in our religious school groups, both through classroom family activities and our religious school Parent Hui.

Kinder-7th grade classes are conducted Sundays from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM, as well as Wednesday afternoons from 4:30 PM-6:30 PM (grades 5+); the schedule for students in our Pre-K and 8th-12th grades varies. Registration takes place during summer, but new students are welcome throughout the year.

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.
