FAQs

Why choose MSJE?
The MSJE was established over 20 years ago to create a positive and affordable, learning environment that allows children to explore their Jewish heritage while providing them with the knowledge to become participants in their religion.  We do this with age-appropriate curriculums that teach children Hebrew and Jewish customs.  We supplement the classroom learning with school wide activities such as monthly Havdallah services, a Hannukkah party, music, various guest speakers, a Purim festival and field trips.


I am not sure if I want to join the Sunday School, may my child and I be a guest one day?
You and your child are welcome to attend a day of Sunday school as our guest! Please contact Felice Kobilinsky at felkob@comcast.net for arrangements. We will ask that you leave us with emergency contact information while your child is attending that day.


Is my child old enough or too old for Sunday School?
MSJE Sunday School classes range from K/1 through 7th grade. Several of our Bar/Bat Mitzvah students have even come back to volunteer in the classrooms and at holiday parties.


Does MSJE have a synagogue with weekly services?
MSJE is not affiliated with a synagogue.  We do offer High Holiday services, but not weekly services.  Our student classes are held at Robert Frost Middle School in Rockville, MD every Sunday.   Because of our small size, we rely on parent volunteers to run many of our activities and to help the Sunday School run smoothly.


Is MSJE affiliated with any specific denomination of Judaism?
Although we are not specific to any particular denomination, many teachings about Judaism are reform in nature. Any and all children are welcome to attend!


Are there High Holiday Services?

High Holidays Services are held yearly at the Universities at Shady Grove and are open to the public. Tickets are not required, there is no charge for these services, and donations for the school are greatly appreciated.


May I make a donation to MSJE?
Any donations to the MSJE Scholarship fund, our school and High Holiday Services would be greatly appreciated. Please send your tax deductible donation to: MSJE, PO Box 10573, Rockville, MD 20849
