Garden City Jewish Center Religious School

The families of the Garden City Jewish Center come from many surrounding towns and villages, and the majority of them are from mixed or dual-faith backgrounds. People of all faiths are very comfortable with Rabbi Goodman’s ability to reach every child and guide them to a higher level of understanding about Judaism and it’s teachings. Individualized instruction techniques are used (three of the teachers have MS degrees in Special Education) to teach students with Learning Disabilities. By Confirmation age (9th grade and 10th grade), most students opt to continue studying with Rabbi Goodman, and are taught Comparative Religions and Ethics.

The Religious School calendar follows the Garden City Public School calendar year, ending in mid-May. The Sundays-only schedule of 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, offers a way for busy families to meet their children’s many sports, academics, and social obligations, while gaining all the necessary skills and information to meet the goal of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, AND having an enriching experience with other children of Jewish or similar background.

For more information, call 516-248-9180, or email Please leave your home number and email address and someone will get back to you ASAP.
