Learning at CST

We offer developmentally appropriate Jewish religious and Hebrew language instruction in a nurturing environment to any child in the Greater Glens Falls area. Our school seeks to instill a love of Judaism and Jewish values and to provide students with the skills that will allow them to be comfortable with Jewish practice throughout their lives.  Please see our Children’s Programs page for further information.

Our adult education programs are designed to respond to members’ needs and interests. In addition to our stimulating Torah discussions on Saturday mornings, our rabbinic intern designs adult education classes, which may be via Zoom or live. Knowledgeable congregants or others with expertise may give classes as well. Please check our calendar for current offerings and let us know if there is a topic or skill you would like to learn about. 

We provide individual Bar and Bat Mitzvah training for people of all ages. We also place a high priority on supporting our potential converts through the conversion process. Contact our office and we will design a program that meets your needs.

Other Programs:

We have a Klezmer band,  Jewish cooking classes, an excellent Jewish library, show movies periodically with Jewish or Israeli themes as well as family night that includes ping-pong, pool and other fun games and activities for all ages.
