Religious School

Welcome to the Temple of Israel Religious School!

My name is Kym Klapperich, and I have been the Education Director at the Temple of Israel Religious School since 2010. Before taking on the role of director, I was a parent in the school and member of the congregation for over 5 years. Our school offers a Jewish Education and a Jewish community to children ages 3 through 10th grade. We meet on Sunday mornings for Family Tefilah, Religious Studies and Hebrew classes. And, our 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students also meet on Wednesday evenings for an additional Hebrew class. Our 6th and 7th grade students experience a rewarding and supportive experience working directly with Rabbi Rose to prepare for B'nai Mitzvah.

The Temple of Israel Religious School is a proud partner of the ISJL, Institute for Southern Jewish Life. We follow the ISJL curriculum and work with the ISJL to bring the best possible Jewish educational experience to our students and families. Speaking of families, we also believe in religious school being a place for the entire family and enjoy having parents and siblings join us for Sunday Morning Tefilah as well as holiday and special events throughout the year.  

The Vision and Mission of the Temple of Israel Religious School

  • Fostering our students in building a strong and positive Jewish identity.
  • Helping our students build relationships with Jewish peers, with our congregation as well as with the greater Jewish community both locally and globally.
  • Helping students understand Jewish values and how they fit into their everyday lives.
  • Celebrating holidays, traditions, and life cycle events.
  • Engaging with Hebrew, both liturgical and modern, so students know and understand prayers and how the Jewish language informs Jewish values.
  • Engaging in acts of Tikkun Olam, Tzedakah, and G'milut Chasadim.  

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, just to chat, or to set up a time to visit our school.  You can reach me by email at or by phone at 864-414-3668 (cell) or 864-292-1782 (temple).
