Religious Education Program

At Hakafa, Jewish education is a family experience. On Sunday mornings, students and their faimilies come together at 10:00 a.m. for shira (singing) and t'fillah (a brief morning service). Religious School classes for the students then take place from 10:25 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. While the students are in class, adults are invited to study with various scholars if they wish. Sunday morning Adult Study classes begin at 10:30 a.m. and end by noon.

Our Sunday mornings end as families gather at noon for a small bagel nosh. A number of times each school year, parents (K-8th grade) are asked to attend Religious School with their children to participate in Field Trips or Education Days. These days are created for families to learn together in a fun, active, and stimulating atmosphere. 

Religious School is generally held the first three Sundays of each month, September through May, at the Glencoe Park District's Takiff Center (999 Green Bay Road, Glencoe). The final Sunday of each month is designated as a "family day" for families to share on their own.

We also have a very successful and well-enjoyed High School Program. Click here for all of the details about our High School Program.

Parent involvement is welcome and encouraged through a variety of programs and projects. We have a Religious Education Committee made up of any parents who are interested in participating. In addition, teacher/parent communication is ongoing throughout the year.
