Our school philosophy is threefold:
Engage – Our students attend secular school all week long, so their Religious School needs to stand out, offering an array of engaging and exciting approaches to learning. The knowledge our students receive and the skills they acquire should be made relevant to their lives.
Measure – All of our lessons, activities, and programs are based on measurable educational objectives, utilizing assessment tools that gauge wh
at our students have learned.
Inspire – We can make our school and synagogue a place where students wish to be. The time they spend here should be both meaningful and enjoyable. We want to see smiles, hear laughter, and produce an atmosphere that builds young Jewish identities and creates fond and lasting positive memories of their Religious School experience.
Head of Religious School is Jen Kriskey

Jen Kriskey is excited to join the Temple Sinai team as the Religious School Administrator. Jen brings with her a passion for education and working with children. As a former middle school math teacher, tutoring center director, and NFTY youth group advisor, she has years of experience working with kids of all ages and their parents. She prides herself in developing curriculum that creates a productive and exciting learning environment. She is especially happy to be working in a Jewish educational setting because a huge part of her identity as a Jew grew out of her positive experiences in the youth programs of her home temple in El Paso, Texas. She feels that helping to create that experience for our young children today will be very satisfying. In addition to spending time with her husband, Tom, and their three daughters, Abbie, Zoe, and Ellie, Jen enjoys reading and crafting.
