Our mission is to inspire students’ commitment to Avodah (prayer and spiritual growth), to Torah (study), and to Tikkun Olam and Gemilut Hasadim (repair of the world and of caring) through the learning and experiences of Jewish texts, rituals, values, and history.

Instruction and other school activities are consistent with the tenets of the Reform Movement promoting living Judaism in thought and practice.

MMT’s Religious School offers Jewish learning for PreK (ages 3-4) through Confirmation (high school).

Hebrew is currently taught from 1st grade through 8th grade. Students learn the Hebrew language focusing on fluent Hebrew reading and learning service prayers and blessings and their meanings.

In Judaica classes, students are provided age appropriate activities to study topics such as Shabbat, Jewish holidays, God, Jewish history, Jewish values and life cycle events. There is a monthly middah (theme) and students also review the weekly Torah portion. The Religious School has a vibrant music program as well as a Library Reading program.

MMT members are a diverse group. As Jewish educators in a Reform congregation, we present Reform Jewish perspectives. Families are responsible for helping children understand how those perspectives fit into the context of their own family traditions.
