The David Ari and Michael Eric Zukin Religious School

The David Ari and Michael Eric Zukin Religious School is run by Education Director, Rachel Mussaf. The school is dedicated to providing a meaningful Jewish education in a warm atmosphere of community, friendship and learning. Family Education programs are an important part of our curriculum, since Jewish learning is a life-long pursuit.

What are people saying about us?

The KI David Ari and Michael Eric Zukin Religious School has been an essential part of our family’s Jewish identity and experience here in West Chester. We’ve learned, met new friends and families, and felt included and cared for by a dedicated group of educators as both of our children made their journeys from elementary school through B’nai Mitzvot.  We can’t imagine our Jewish family without the KI Religious School at the center of it!

We love sending our daughter to the David Ari and Michael Eric Zukin Religious School at KI.  She has learned so much about our Jewish heritage and traditions and has come a long way in learning Hebrew and the prayers since starting in Gan 5 years ago. She has met her best friends there and looks forward to going Sundays and Wednesdays. The teachers and the director are all personally involved and dedicated to each child’s religious learning. We’re looking forward to the start of the new school year.
