Meitin Alliance for Growth and Learning (MAGAL)

Temple Shir Shalom is committed to empowering our families to live Jewish lives with a strong moral conscience. We want our students to develop a relationship with God through reverence for all that is holy and participation in Tikkun Olam (repairing our world), Tzedekah (charity) and G’milut Hasadim (acts of loving kindness). Accordingly, we are committed to teaching each generation to share the joy of our heritage by providing the opportunity to learn Jewish history, language and traditions. Jewish education is a life long process – through knowledge we encourage our students to embrace their Jewish identity, which includes love of Torah and an appreciation of their connection to the Jewish people. We hope to nurture the perpetuation of Jewish life and identity and to enable our youth to share the joy of our heritage.

Temple Shir Shalom and Temple Israel have joined together to create a collaborative religious school for the children of both congregations.  The newly formed community school is called the Meitin Alliance for Growth and Learning, a Collaborative Religious School by Temple Israel, Temple Shir Shalom and Congregation Beth Am. The school will be known as MAGAL, the Hebrew word for circle and a symbol of oneness.  Although each congregation has its unique character, we are one in our commitment to provide a strong Jewish education and identity to our children.  We are so happy and excited that our children have twice as many Jewish students with whom to connect!

All Classes are held at Temple Israel, 50 Moss Road in Winter Springs.  School times are Sundays 9:00am- 12:30pm for all children in grades K-7. The Temple Israel students in grades 3-7 also attend classes on Wednesdays from 5pm-6:30pm.  TSS students are not required to attend on Wednesdays, but are always welcome. Temple Israel uses the time on Wednesdays to cover material specific to a Conservative setting.  

More information can be found in our 2018-2019 MAGAL Handbook.
