The Woodlands Community Temple Religious School offers a dynamic, inclusive environment for our children to learn. We welcome Jewish single parents, LGBTQ families, interfaith families, and other Jewish families in all their diversity. We feel strongly about educating all children regardless of their ability and welcome families who have children with special needs.
Our goal is to provide a Jewish education in a warm and nurturing setting. We have experienced teachers and small class sizes. Both afford the perfect opportunity for our children to learn in comfortable and supportive surroundings. Every class is assigned a teacher’s assistant to ensure that all individual student needs are met. Through fun hands-on projects, interesting stories and class assignments, games and music, the children thrive. We strive to help students discover their own personally meaningful path through Jewish life, which we hope will last a lifetime
Saturday School Programs
In our Saturday school – Gan Hayeled (pre-schoolers) through 2nd grade – our goal is to build community among families, to develop a child’s comfort level in the synagogue, and to begin to build a solid foundation as the students learn about Judaism. Besides regular classroom activities, parents will be involved with their children as the entire Saturday school community comes together several times during the year in our new “Kindling” program. This includes experiencing the holidays and interactive learning as a family.

Please note our new policy, recently approved by the Board of Trustees, regarding Peanut/Nut Allergies and Awareness. We are trying to make WCT a safe and healthy environment for everyone and we need you to be aware of this policy when bringing food into the temple.

Hebrew is the language of the Jewish people. It is the language of the Torah, the Siddur, the Talmud, and other sacred books. Modern Hebrew is the language of our people in Israel. The study of Hebrew is an integral part of the entire school program.
Educational Philosophy and Goals
Religious school provides fundamental training for life as a Jew. During the years your children spend with us, WCT provides the skills and knowledge they need to live that life and, hopefully, the motivation and commitment to do so. We believe that Religious school is a beginning, not an end.
