  <p>Thanks for your interest in the NCJC Religious School. Below you will be able to read our mission statement as well as a list of objectives we have for all of our graduates. However, just as books don’t make a curriculum, a mission statement can’t possibly reflect the nuance of a school community. We invite you to contact us for a personal tour of our school or to address any questions you may have. Each year, increasing numbers of families join our school community – a reflection of the dedication and creativity of our faculty members. While the New City Jewish Center is a large synagogue, we pride ourselves on creating sub-communities to help foster a more tailored experience.<br /><br />We look forward to meeting you soon!<br /><br />B’shalom,<br /><br />Lynne Diwinsky<br />Education Director and Principal<br /><br /><br />The New City Jewish Center Religious School strives to create student understanding and <strong>connections to contemporary Jewish life</strong> through the teaching and experiencing of the core tenets of <strong>Conservative Jewish traditions and practice</strong>.<br /><br />A graduate from New City Jewish Center’s Religious School will…<br />&nbsp;</p>
