Morduck & Rebecca Kapiloff Religious School

The Morduck and Rebecca Kapiloff Religious School, dedicated in 1976, offers an experiential curriculum that includes studies of Hebrew, Bible, Judaic studies and History. Our school is filled with the sounds and activities of students and teachers, busy with fulfilling the mitzvah of Talmud Torah (learning the Torah) and experiencing the joy of Jewish living. Our mission is not only to teach our students about their rich heritage but to create fond memories of our Jewish time together which includes Avodah (spirituality), Chessed (kindness) and Kehila (community). We achieve these through quality education programs, Shabbatonim, performances, art exhibits and field trips.

Conservative Jewish education should be the foundation for young people to become active members of a Jewish community and a Jewish home. This type of education should encompass support of Israel and Jewish organizations, affiliation with synagogues, participation in a Jewish community, commitment to Shabbat and other Jewish holidays and living a Jewish lifestyle in and out of the Jewish home. 

Our Goals: 

  • We would like each student to receive an array of Jewish experiences to coincide with their required classes for a complete Jewish training. 

  • Students should be able to participate in a Conservative Shabbat, holiday, or weekday service with knowledge of the Torah service and what it means to be a Bar/Bat Mitzvah student. They should be able to use a Siddur, Chumash, Talit, and Tefillin. We would like each student to be able to know important people in history and understand concepts such as Zionism, mitzvot, ethics, theology, and life-cycle and be able to fully participate in the Shabbat experience and holiday celebrations. Mostly, we would like their Jewish education to be full of ruach - spirituality and a sincere pride in being Jewish.

  • We use the classroom as a place to build community. The strategies and philosophy we use promote and create shalom bayit, a harmonious school atmosphere. Our students will learn Jewish sources and Jewish life-skills that will help them develop menschlikite behavior. Judaism is a learned life-style, the more we live it, the more it becomes ours.
