Congregation Solel is dedicated to preparing the children of our congregation to participate fully and meaningfully in Jewish life. Lev Solel, the heart of Solel, is our Jewish religious school experience. Our classrooms foster sacred community, as well as a respect and love of Judaism, its history, traditions, and values. We work with students to understand how these values relate to our current world and their lives, with a focus on student connection, engagement, and enjoyment.

Our students are active participants in Jewish prayer, learning to decode Hebrew, and finding meaning in our ancient liturgy, often through music or art. Project-based learning and responsive classroom techniques are used in our classrooms to encourage depth of learning.  Most importantly, we aim to create an environment within Lev Solel where students are engaged and happy learners, and want to continue their Jewish learning beyond their school years.

Read a letter from Ashley Plotnick, our Director of Congregational Learning, further discussing the core values of Lev Solel as a learning community.
