CONGREGATION ALBERT SCHOOL OF JEWISH STUDIES
Register now for the Congregation Albert School of Jewish Studies
Limud and Religious School Program!
Limud means learning in Hebrew and is the perfect name for the Congregation Albert Sunday morning program. Our Limud program begins with Gan Katan (Pre-school) and continues through seventh grade taking place on Sunday mornings from 9:30 am until noon. The morning program includes T’filah, Jewish Studies and Hebrew. Limud Ivrit (Hebrew learning) is the continuing Hebrew program for our 4th – 6th grade students taking place on Wednesdays from 5:30-7pm. Machon, which means Institute, is our program for 7th – Confirmation (10th grade) and is held on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30pm. Although the schedule remains the same, there will be opportunities for family and community learning to take place within each class. Please check your CASJS email (Chadashot) newsletter for further information on these exciting activities.

Rachel Sternheim, M.A, Ed.
Raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico in a home filled with Jewish tradition, values and celebrations, a love of community and Israel developed from an early age. The connection grew through involvement in youth groups, Hillel and visits to Israel. Working as a Hebrew school teacher sparked a calling that resulted in graduating from University of New Mexico with BS in Education, teaching in the Los Angeles Unified School District, a move toward educational administration, earning an MA in Education from the American Jewish University and a BA in Hebrew Letters from the Zeigler School of Rabbinic Studies. As the principal of Temple Emanuel Academy Day School in Beverly Hills, key initiatives included the development of a gifted and talented focus, implementation of the foreign language teaching standards and the Hebrew Proficiency model, multiage learning, and an emphasis on individualized staff development. In 2013, starting an educational consulting practice with a special emphasis on the needs of parents of gifted students, has allowed additional insight into the important role of parents in education. Sharing a home filled with celebration, books and a love of the arts with husband, Harvey and two teenage daughters has added joy and blessing to her life.
