Frankel Religious School
Our mission is to build a vibrant religious school and learning community where students live Jewish lives expressed through their actions and values. Interfaith, same gender, and non-traditional families have an important place at the table of learning in FRS as we engage in continuous learning. Our philosophy of education is student-centered because we believe when learning is relevant and meaningful it has the potential to last a lifetime.

FRS 2022-23 School Year

We continue to reimagine FRS so we can continue learning in a most effective and productive way.

Thank you for your interest in the Frankel Religious School (FRS)! Our first day back to school for in-person learning will be Sunday, September 11, 2022, 9:30 AM – 12:15 PM at HNT. Our priority moving forward is the safety of our staff and students coupled with continuity of Jewish learning. We base our policies at FRS on core Jewish values, medical advice, and best educational practices. We continue to be guided by the following values:

  1. Pikuah Nefesh: Saving a life takes precedence.
  2. Ushmartem et Nafshotechem: You shall scrupulously guard your health.
  3. Dina D’malchuta Dina: The law of the land is the law.

This year we will continue to offer robust, meaningful learning opportunities with options for online and in-person. Whether taking the distance learning approach online or opting for in-person learning on Tuesdays, at FRS we meet our students where they are at in a sincere and sensitive way and then take their Hebrew and Judaic learning to the next level.

All HNT members can simply log into Shul Cloud account and go to the “start school enrollment” area. After enrolling, please go back into Shul Cloud account and set up the payment schedule. Here is the direct link for members:

Post-B'nai Mitzvah & High School

Post-B’nai Mitzvah & High School

Education after the b’nai mitzvah year is a priority at HNT. Components to our post-B’nai Mitzvah and High School program include:

  1. 8th Grade Leadership Program: Our Gesher (Bridge) program meets once a month with the goal of empowering our students to be leaders in the community and help shape our future.
  2. Madrichim Program: Teens work in the Frankel Religious School as teachers’ assistants, and have a study component on Sundays while students are in the family service (9:30 AM – 10:00 AM). In addition, teens give back to the community as Torah Tutors for B’nai Mitzvah students. Starting in 9th grade, teens are monetarily compensated for their hard work.
  3. Achim USY: United Synagogue Youth is our youth group for our high school students. Learn more about USY on the Teen Activities page.
  4. Masa Program and Trips: Our five-year rotation of monthly classes and annual informal trips is open to 8th-12th graders. Students are encouraged to participate in the Gwenn and Dean Polik and Valerie Polack z”l sponsored trips to experience Jewish life in various cities across North America. Students gather in the preceding monthly Tuesday evening class to understand, plan and learn about where they will visit on their trip. The idea for these trips is based on the holy work of Bob Zimmerman z”l, to create a community for our teens with the goals of:
  • Broadening the Jewish experiences and deepening the Jewish knowledge of our teens in a compelling and attractive way.
  • Connecting our teens with each other and with the greater Jewish people.
  • Bonding our students with HNT as their home and community, the place they can turn to for friendship and exciting new ideas, and an anchor for helping them make ethical decisions at a critical time in their personal development.

Many thanks to Gwenn & Dean Polik for their support of these experiential and educational trips.
