GRS Religious & Hebrew School
Our inspiring new home and the close involvement of Rabbi Gerson will make your child’s educational experience better than ever. Students will have their own classrooms to decorate, with our beautiful sanctuary and social hall for special activities. Jewish learning will extend across the street to Pomerance Park, where we can enjoy and help preserve the beauty of nature, a key element of Judaism. Shabbat services will have a multi-generational appeal, including a kid’s play table, plus a new approach to family services.

At Greenwich Reform Synagogue, we take education seriously – at every stage of life – and believe Jewish learning has the potential to enrich, transform and deepen our lives. We believe, as the Rabbis of thousands of years insisted, that study can be a form of devotion, and serious engagement with the tradition makes us not just better Jews, but better people.
At GRS we don’t just read sacred texts – we discuss them, argue with them, and add our voices to them. We learn in single demographic groups, but also multi-generationally, and we learn broadly and deeply – from all our tradition has to offer. This year, we’ll be delving into Jewish contemplative forms like walking and meditation, Jewish women’s wisdom through our Rosh Chodesh groups, text study of classics like Esther and the Book of Job, and scholar in residence weekends with nationally acclaimed Rabbis, Jewish journalists, writers and thinkers.
We’ll also be offering an Introduction to the Jewish service course this year, as well as regular Torah study with a group of devoted regulars. Have a specific Jewish interest you want to explore? Let us know, and we’ll see if we can make it happen!
No prior knowledge is necessary, and everyone is welcome. For complete details and to register for classes, please contact the GRS office at (203) 629-0018.
