Jewish Day School Families



Adas Israel has many children who attend local Jewish Day Schools such as the Jewish Primary Day School and the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School. Our youth Shabbat services and youth groups are excellent ways for our day school students to become involved in the synagogue, meet new friends, participate in regional and national Jewish youth programs, and learn about other opportunities in the community.
