Our Inter-Congregational Sunday School is one of the longest running combined Reform and Conservative religious schools in the country; a joint educational venture between
Temple B’nai Israel and Emanuel Synagogue of Oklahoma City.
Mission: Every Jewish child can grow up to be a competent and confident member of the Jewish community. The Inter-Congregational Sunday School (ICSS) provides traditional and experiential Jewish education from Reform and Conservative perspectives to supplement family practice and congregational participation.
Respecting where students are on their Jewish journeys, ICSS strives to present an array of perspectives that challenge learners forward.
In partnership with family engagement and congregational participation, ICSS students learn to:
Appreciate Torah and its relevance/importance for today
Understand/experience prayer from Reform and Conservative perspectives
Apply mitzvot (commandments) and Jewish values to daily living.
