About NACHaS

NACHaS is an all-volunteer, lay-led religious school in Huntsville, AL. Our school is joint-venture between two of Huntsville’s Jewish congregations: Temple B’nai Sholom and Huntsville Conservative Synagogue.

  1. At NACHaS, we believe our children should strengthen their faith in God, their love of Torah, and their identification with the Jewish people. We hope to inspire a strong sense of Jewish community and enrich their observance of Jewish practices, literacy, education and values.
    1. To make a sincere effort to help each student cultivate a sense of pride in being Jewish, and comfort and joy in their Judaism.
    2. To develop a sense of respect and caring for  each other and a greater feeling of spirituality leading to good deeds and faith in G-d.
    3. To instill a sense of responsibility for ourselves and those less fortunate through active, personal participation in Tzedakah, T’filah and Tikkun Olam.
    4. To familiarize students with Jewish observance through worship and prayer including study, attendance at religious services, and special holiday celebrations.
    5. To familiarize students with Torah, Jewish ethics, modern Israel and to convey an awareness of and appreciation for the richness of Jewish history and literature.
    6. To stimulate a process of continuous learning and living which extends beyond the Religious School and lasts a lifetime.

The 2020-21 School Calendar is under development. The current plan is to meet virtually through Hanukkah. The current calendar is available here.

Registration is open to every Jewish student Pre-K through 7th grade, based on the students’ placement in the local school system. Register here.

Registration information will be posted when available and published for both Temple B’nai Sholom and Huntsville Conservative Synagogue.
