A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR:
My name is Tracy Cranson. I am so fortunate to be the Head of our wonderful Religious School.
I have been the leader of this exciting team for several years and in that time we have been able to provide
an enthusiastic and safe environment for the students as they learn Hebrew reading, lessons from the Torah,
the history of Israel, Judaism appreciation and most importantly, Jewish values. Our goal is to prepare
our students to be knowledgeable, charitable and proud members of our faith. I am also the
6th grade teacher and the B'nai Mitzvah tutor for our Temple. Through these roles I have the opportunity
to get to know our families and study with the students which I find the most rewarding of all.
Come join our Temple "mishpacha" - family!
The Religious School at Temple Tiferet Shalom offers classes for students beginning in Kindergarten up through 10th grade Confirmation. With over 100 students, our school is a vibrant place for learning about and fostering a love of Judaism.
