Yom Sheini, 4 Sivan 5777


The Temple Shaari Emeth Religious School is located at 400 Craig Road, Manalapan, New Jersey 07726.  We are a Reform Jewish synagogue where all are welcome.  In our one-day-per-week Hebrew School, we prepare our students for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah and for Confirmation, but a Jewish education is much more than that. We provide the support of a full Jewish community. We instill Jewish values. And we provide the preparation for a life of Jewish learning, to ensure a Jewish future. To register your child, call Melissa Pescatore at (732) 462-4245 or email her at mpescatore@shaariemeth.org.
