Temple Kol Ami Family Religious School
What if there was a Sunday school where your child came home singing Jewish songs?
What if there was a Sunday school where the children have so much fun while learning that they can’t wait to share it with you?
What if there was a Sunday school where each child was encouraged to creatively explore what Judaism means to them, their family and their community in a warm, friendly and supportive environment?
That Sunday school is the Temple Kol Ami Family Religious School (TKA FRS). Our Sunday mornings for kids preK through 7th grade start with a rousing song session. Students and teachers greet each other with smiles and hugs. Talented and caring teachers engage the entire school in weekly Chai Time (Chai = Life), where we explore a different theme as one learning community.
Students learn about the Jewish holidays, Jewish values and Israel through fun, hands-on activities. They begin to understand Shabbat through participating and leading parts of services throughout the year where families and extended families are invited to attend and participate in Shabbat dinner and the service.
Community is the core of our school. Parents often stay and “schmooze” over bagels and coffee, creating their own special bonds. Many participate in the opening song session or other programs throughout the day or to celebrate Jewish holidays with their children.
Have a child with special needs? TKA’s Opening the Doors program offers one-on-one assistance for children who may need additional help with learning Hebrew or to participate in any of our fun educational offerings.
All this and more make TKA FRS Metro Detroit’s most innovative religious school and the right fit for your children!
Hebrew School, Grades 4 to 6 (Wednesdays)
The ‘tween years are a special time at TKA. Our 4th through 6th grade Wednesday classes start off with a student-led service. Then they practice and learn Hebrew with experienced staff using a combination of interactive activities and innovative media tools. The students begin to gain a deeper appreciation for the meaning of the prayers and how they fit into the service, the wealth of our Jewish tradition, and their connection to it. These lessons are the core of preparing them to become Bar and Bat Mitzvah.
