Temple Sinai (Oakland) Hebrew School?
Could anyone share their experience with the Temple Sinai (Oakland)’s Hebrew School? We’re considering it for our child who is currently in early elementary and went to a different (secular) preschool. We’d hope to continue until at least bar/bat mitzvah age for all of our kids. Our family has been to a couple of events at Sinai but I wouldn’t say we’re a part of the community, yet. We’re hoping to find a Jewish community we enjoy being a part of and helps give our kids regular and meaningful exposure to Jewish culture and concepts. We have negative memories of Hebrew School from growing up — is Hebrew School, particularly at Sinai, still onerous for kids? Is the Sinai community welcoming particularly of families who did not attend the preschool? My partner and I would describe ourselves as culturally Jewish but not religious, though we grew up in conservative+ homes. Thank you!
