United Jewish School
The United Jewish School is jointly operated by the Conservative congregation of Ahavas Israel and the Reform congregation of Temple Emanuel. The enrollment ranges from Gan Katan (2-4 year olds) through 12th grade. The school employs an administrative director, a curriculum director, and a large staff of teachers. On Sunday, class is held from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at Temple Emanuel and the Wednesday Hebrew program is held from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at Congregation Ahavas Israel.
The United Jewish School establishes an school environment for children and families, utilizing the latest teaching methodologies and curriculum which responds to the needs of a diverse student population and strengthens the students’ awareness of Israel and Jewish issues. It is a warm and caring place where children want to attend.

Thank you also to Congregation Ahavas Israel, Temple Emanuel and Jewish Federation of Grand Rapids. Without their spiritual and financial support our school would not be such a great success!
Please take the time to remember the school in your contributions. We have a beautiful tribute card that can be sent in memory of someone, for a special occasion or just for a simple ‘thank you’.
