About the WJC Religious School

Woodbury Jewish Center’s Religious School is dedicated to making every child feel good about themselves as Jews and as young adults. Starting in Kindergarten and throughout their years with us, students learn to appreciate Jewish history, heritage, holidays and, most of all, the values of chesed (helping others) and tikkum olam (healing the world). 
Kindergarten, First and Second grade classes meet on Sunday mornings. Alef (3rd grade) and Gimel (5th grade) meet Sunday in person and have 45 minute virtual sessions on Wednesday afternoons.  Bet (4th grade) and Daled (6th grade) meet Wednesday afternoon in person and have 45 minute virtual sessions on Sunday mornings.  Hey (7th grade) meets on Wednesday afternoons only, in person.
Jewish holidays are observed by every grade with a variety of fun programs and activities. Our students also enjoy off-site learning at Jewish and Holocaust museums, working at a food pantry, entertaining at an assisted living facility and lots more.
Students who complete our program have the ability to fully participate in all synagogue services and events and holiday celebrations in the home.
A child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah is one of the most exciting stages in a family’s Jewish life. We offer resources, support and encouragement throughout the process. Our goal is for every child feel confident and at ease on the bimah.  Read More
High School And Confirmation
The Bar or Bat Mitzvah is the not the end of our children's Jewish education. Our High School classes, for grades 8-11, meet with Rabbi Fruithandler twice each month and are intended to bolster the student's confidence with lessons in leadership skills from a Jewish perspective. Children who continue taking classes through tenth grade are treated to a wonderful Confirmation ceremony and celebration.

2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR


10am in the chapel with Morah Ruth Deane! 

Please join me, Ruth Deane, for our Family Shabbat Service on the Shabbat mornings below. Our 45 minute services are always kid and parent friendly. We use this time to join together and share in singing prayers/tfillot and to have an opportunity to discuss today’s personal challenges and triumphs, as seen through the lens of this week’s torah portion.
Hope to see you there…Shabbat Shalom!

Health and Wellness Policy 2023-2024

WJC is doing the following to help keep our students and staff healthy:
  • Hand sanitizer is available at the entrance to the school and throughout the building for use during the day.  
  • Classrooms, bathrooms, office spaces and shared areas will be routinely deep cleaned and sanitized by our custodial staff.
  • Commonly touched surfaces, including door handles, light switches, counter and tabletops, toilets, faucets, and chairs, will be wiped down throughout the day. Cleaning products used at WJC are EPA-approved for child safety and use against the virus that causes Covid-19. 
  • High-efficiency filters are installed throughout the building with the recommended MERV rating for our HVAC system to maintain a healthy indoor air quality. 
  • There are also air purifiers in each classroom as well as hospital grade air purifiers at each end of the school hallway.
We ask our families to help us keep our students and staff healthy by doing the following:
  • Students who have symptoms of respiratory or gastrointestinal infections, such as cough, fever, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea, should stay home. Testing is recommended for people with symptoms of COVID-19 as soon as possible after symptoms begin. People who are at risk for getting very sick with COVID-19 who test positive should consult with a healthcare provider right away for possible treatment, even if their symptoms are mild. Staying home when sick can lower the risk of spreading infectious diseases, including COVID-19, to other people. For more information on staying home when sick with COVID-19, including recommendations for isolation and mask use for people who test positive or who are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, see Isolation and Precautions for People with COVID-19.
  • Students who have a temperature greater than 100 must be fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of fever-reducing medication before returning to school, regardless of diagnosis.
  • If a student shows signs of illness during the day, they will be isolated from others and parents will be contacted to pick up their student immediately.
  • In the event that a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19, the  WJC Religious School will take the following steps:
    • The student or staff member must isolate for 5 days after symptoms first appeared or the positive Covid test, whichever came first, and they must be fever-free for at least 24 hours without the aid of fever-reducing medication(s). They can return to school properly masked for days 6 – 10. 
    • WJC will clean and disinfect all areas used by the student/staff member who is infected such as offices, bathrooms, classroom, the chapel, sanctuary and other common areas.
    • In the event that a staff member or student has a household member or has sustained contact with someone that has or is suspected to have Covid-19, it is recommended that they test for Covid-19 after 5 days or sooner if any symptoms develop. If during that time the student/staff member is diagnosed with Covid-19, please notify the Religious School Principal, Dr. Rachel Treshan at or by phone at (516) 496-9100 x102.
We are so looking forward to a year of good health and lots of Jewish learning, singing and smiling!
