Creating Jewish Community; Instilling Jewish Values, Building Jewish Community that grows with your child

A Jewish education that:

  • engages children from JK to Grade 12
  • promotes Jewish ethics and social justice
  • creates a bond with Israel and the greater Jewish community
  • celebrates Jewish life cycle including preparation for Bar/Bat Mitzvah
  • inspires youth programming for Grades 6 to 12

Instilling Jewish values
“TIRS provides the foundation for living a Jewish life in the modern world. As a former student and parent of current students, I have experienced firsthand what it means to grow up in a creative, nurturing and enriching Jewish environment.”
— Fern Doctoroff

Creating Jewish community
“TIRS means to us, being part of a large extended family, with fun learning and a great sense of community with love, encouragement and support from staff, students and families.”>
— Bonnie Cooper

Building Jewish identity that grows with your child
