Cincy Reform Jewish High School
"Kulanu means “all of us”. We bring together teens from four reform synagogues in Cincinnati: Rockdale Temple, Temple Sholom, Valley Temple and Wise Temple. Rabbis from all four of these temples teach at Kulanu in addition to a talented teaching staff. Together we stimulate and challenge teens as they begin their independent Jewish lives.
What does Kulanu Teach?
Kulanu presents our students to the relevance and importance of Judaism in their lives. It offers an opportunity to meet and build community with other Jewish teens.
What are Kulanu’s Goals?
Our goal is that our graduates will have a foundational picture of how Judaism is a part of their lives. We work to provide them with a broad and relevant Jewish educational experiences.
Each semester, students will participate in a grade-specific class and one elective. Each congregation prepares its own students for confirmation. Electives span a wide array of subjects and modalities allowing participants to find a great fit.
Kulanu starts with free dinner for students. While, entirely optional, students are encourage to meet up with friends and get to know other students in the Kulanu community, as we enjoy a variety of dinner options.
This Spring Kulanu will explore Cincinnati with a series of trips and programs specially designed for our students. Check the Field Trip tab for more information."
Kulanu meets at Cincy's various Reform synagogues. Please visit Kulanu's page for more information.
"Jewish spirituality is an approach to life in which we strive to become aware of God's presence and purpose in everything."
