From Our Beginning…


The school began in North Minneapolis as a cheder in 1895 and has continuously offered our community’s young people a strong, innovative Jewish education for more then 120 years. Continuing in that tradition, our vision is to be a thriving school that offers a curriculum relevant to our students and their families, that inspires a commitment to Torah and Jewish living, and that builds a deep connection with Israel and all Jewish people.

Bridging Innovation and Tradition…

Talmud Torah was founded with a commitment to educate learners from all corners of the Jewish community. Over the years, using sacred scrolls and Smart Boards, the arts and technology, discussion and debates, field trips and school-wide celebrations, our dedicated, professional educators bring their knowledge and creativity to expose students to the richness of Judaism.  Students gain deeper insight into our holidays, life cycle events and the importance of Torah (study) and Tikun Olam (repairing the world). Our rigorous education builds knowledge of Judaism and its traditional practices based on the teachings and egalitarian, pluralistic principles of the Conservative movement.

Engaging Jewish Youth...

Talmud Torah is organized into Elementary and Middle School programs:


Elementary Program: Bet-Hey (grades 2-5)

The Talmud Torah experience begins with our youngest students eager to engage in Jewish learning.  Many students enter with previous Jewish pre-school, Day School or other Jewish experiences. For others, Talmud Torah is their introduction to a formal Jewish education.  Our warm and caring faculty and staff make Talmud Torah feel like our students’ Jewish "home away from home" and connect them to the exciting world of Judaism and the Hebrew language.

Middle School Program: Vav-Het (Grades 6-8)

During these years, students will be studying for and celebrating one of the biggest and most defining milestones in their lives – becoming b’nai mitzvah. Students continue to build their foundation of Jewish learning with Hebrew, study of sacred texts, life cycle events, Israeli and Jewish American history and the Holocaust.  These studies, in conjunction with our educational partnership with our synagogues, support our young adolescents making the transition into Jewish adulthood.
