Talmud Torah

In our exciting and supportive Sephardic Roots Talmud Torah program, young people explore the history and practice of Sephardic Judaism. Our mission is to create a deep sense of love for our heritage and traditions, as well as for the eternal values of the Torah by which we live. We aspire to develop a strong connection to the Torah, to the unique heritage of each family, and to the State of Israel. We also strive to make Judaism relevant to today’s modern life, thus fortifying the narrative of our past and future, and instilling in our students pride in their Jewish identity.

Our Sephardic Roots Talmud Torah provides an excellent stimulus for a young person’s more individual and specific Bar and Bat Mitzvah preparation. For older students who have passed beyond that ritual, our classes are designed to sustain and deepen their interest in Sephardic learning.

At MDSC, boys and girls, ages 5-15 are immersed in a curriculum that includes:

  • Learning Sephardic melodies for prayer on Shabbat & holidays
  • Reading the Torah and Haftara with Sephardic ta'amim
  • Celebrating Jewish holidays and understanding essential Jewish values
  • Exploring Torah commentaries from various sources
  • Designing & undertaking tzedakah projects

Classes are held on Sunday mornings from 10:00am - 12:00pm at Magen David. Tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $450 per student for members and $700 per student for non-members.

For questions about our program, please contact the office at 301-770-6818 or Registration forms for the 2018-2019 school year can also be found here.
