Welcome to The Leonard and Barbara Zimet Religious School, a proud part of Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley. Wherever you are in your family’s Jewish journey, we welcome you as part of our family.
The Zimet School goes beyond merely teaching students; we are educators who help to form bonds between faculty, students, families, and our community. Our pedagogy is strength-based and rooted in principles of inclusivity, experiential learning, Jewish values, and educational justice.
We personally invite all, including current families, who are seeking to learn more about our unique, rigorous, and joyful school, to explore our website and contact us with any questions.
The Education Committee supports CEHV’s Zimet Religious School, the Jewish Learning Adventure (JLA), with the goal of fostering a vibrant community for learning. This committee coordinates parent support for weekly JLA sessions, and community events like the annual Purim carnival and picnics. Additionally, this group is a direct support for the JLA Director on issues such as Covid-19 protocols, strategic planning, and community outreach. Meetings are on the third Tuesday of each month at 8pm over Zoom, and all are welcome.
