Religious School

The Dor Hadash Religious School provides Reconstructionist Jewish education in a warm and welcoming after-school setting for children of grade-school age through B’Mitzvah. We are the only Reconstructionist Religious School in western Pennsylvania. The Reconstructionist philosophy is embedded throughout our school curriculum.

Our teachers are knowledgeable in Jewish tradition, yet emphasize exploration and an open mind to think about how Jewish rituals and celebrations might be changed (‘reconstructed’) to enhance their meaning and effect. History is explored in context, with an eye on modern critique.  Students will have opportunities to explore customs and traditions, and offer modern interpretations as well. 

Behind all we do is always the philosophy of Reconstructionist Judaism.
