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.  By Confirmation age (8th grade and 9th/10th grade), most students opt to continue studying with Rabbi Goodman, and are taught Comparative Religion, Bioethics 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 a.m. – 11:45 p.m., offers a way for busy families to meet their children’s many sports, academic, 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.
