High School

Temple Sinai High School offers students a unique study program designed to be flexible, keep students connected, and deepen their Jewish heritage and identity.  It is called the 4 T’s Track System.  Students have the opportunity to choose one track or as many tracks as they would like to follow.  The tracks include Traditional Learning, Tikkun Olam (social service projects of their choice), Tefillah (stay connected through services) and TASTY (Teenage Association of Sharon Temple Youth).  

Traditional Learning- This is our Tuesday night program that meets from 6:30-7:30 p.m and the hour is dedicated to core classwork with creative teaching.  More detailed class information can be found here.

Students must complete a series of credits in order to eventually be confirmed at a Shavuot service in the 10th grade.

Tikkun Olam- This track will include our volunteer program. We are in the process of developing this Mitzvah Corps in the post-COVID era and the details will come shortly. We hope to be able to participate in the after school program at the Westfield Child Care Center as well as Brightview the Independent and Assisted Living Facility. We are also looking to do some lunch and dinner prep for homeless shelters.

Tefillah – This track enables the student to stay connected through prayer services.  The student participates in at least one worship service monthly. The Rabbi will work out a plan with the individual student if they choose this track.  Some opportunities may include:

*Rosh Hashanah services (Torah reading/recite prayers)
*Yom Kippur
*Simchat Torah
*Reading your Torah portion on the anniversary of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah
*Megillah reading at the Purim Service
*Participate at B’Simcha (monthly family Shabbat)
*Help with the school Sunday morning minyan (30 minute interactive musical service)

TASTY – This track is the high school youth group that meets every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. in the Youth Lounge.  The Temple Sinai group is an active group that plans and participates in local activities as well as at a regional level (NFTY). 

If you have any questions or would like more information about TASTY, contact the Youth Group Advisor, Jon Nelson.

Confirmation

The culmination of the formal religious educational program for young people is the ceremony of confirmation, which is held on Shavuot. Students are confirmed after the successful completion of three years of study in the high school (grades 8-10) and other activities, which are scheduled during the course of the confirmation class year. Please refer to our High School Handbook for more information.

If you are interested in joining any of our Religious School High School programs, please contact our Director of Education, Beth Fine-Nelson.
