The World Affairs Council hosted a delegation of educators from Kurdish Iraq. Since their project was titled, “Religious and Public Education Curriculum Development in the U.S” they visited several sites in Louisville to explore curriculum development and ‘after/out-of-school’ methodologies for religious education. They met with Sarah Harlan, Principle, and Rabbi David to learn more about our Religious School and Judaism.
THE CHESTER B. DIAMOND RELIGIOUS SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT:
Our learning community strives to create a caring atmosphere of friendship while encouraging meaningful understanding and a dedicated commitment to Jewish life – in school and at home. The wonderful teaching faculty is diligent that all classroom experiences are valuable and nurture a positive Jewish identity. In addition, our goal is for each student to participate in enjoyable experiences that are part of Temple life, be exposed to and internalize our biblical stories, and to embrace Jewish culture as well as Reform ethical beliefs and values.
