Policies

Parents who have students who learn differently should contact our school director, Mr. Charlie Sherman, directly either by calling him in the synagogue office (847–446–7215 extension 12) or on his cell phone (847–708–1805) or by email (csherman@amyisrael.org).

As taken from our guiding principles of the school: “Virtues and values are of central importance to everything we do at our school. The way we act; who we are; what we stand for; how we respond; how we view life and the world around us; our personal qualities, attributes and traits—all these reflect the degree to which we embrace our Jewish values.”

The 2016–17 Parent Manual is now available here. This document contains an overview of the Am Yisrael School of Jewish Studies (SJS), including our mission, goals for our students and how we accomplish them, details on each of our classes and teacher contact information, our school policies, and more.
