Valley is committed to providing experiences for to learn alongside your child(ren). Our students have a better experience when the relevance of the lesson is clear to them and have a richer view of Judaism when they can see how it fits into family life. Our students enjoy their time at Temple when they can share it with their parents or grandparents.
[Strongly Encouraged For Our Curriculum]
A good Jewish summer camp can give children an informal community that lives Judaism in a way unique to the setting. Our camp of choice is Goldman Union Camp Institute in Zionsville, Indiana. Each summer we send between 15 and 25 campers and staff members to camp—along with Rabbi Kopnick, who serves on faculty for 2 weeks in the first session. While there are other good Jewish camps, our preference is that our kids go to the same camp, so that the ruach (camp spirit) is brought back into our Sunday morning program.
