The Morningside Sunday Experience is a fun and engaging Jewish educational experience for children of all ages and their parents. A division of the prestigious Atlanta Scholars Kollel, our close-knit, family-like atmosphere breeds a culture of trust and empowerment where students thrive in their learning and Jewish identity. Our goal is to provide children with a tremendous pride in their Judaism and a thirst for knowledge of what it means to live as a Jew in today’s world.

The MSE curriculum includes Hebrew language, an encompassing knowledge of the Jewish holidays, history, and values, and exciting special events throughout the year. Learning is hands on whenever possible with a special focus on making the learning fun and stimulating.

Diverse programs bring the opportunity for a Jewish education to students of all levels, as well as adults. At MSE, we believe that children learn best when they see their parents interested and studying as well. Free adult learning opportunities and classes are offered on an ongoing basis by the Atlanta Scholars Kollel.  Please contact us to take advantage of any of these unique opportunities.  More info can be found on the Kollel website: www.atlantakollel.org.

About / FAQs

Morningside Sunday Experience takes place on Sunday mornings at 1324 North Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306.

What ages does the Morningside Sunday Experience service?
Children from preschool through 8th grade are welcome at MSE. Our b’nei mitzvah program services the oldest boys and girls (6th, 7th and 8th grade).

What is the religious affiliation of the Morningside Sunday Experience?
MSE is a division of the Atlanta Scholars Kollel, a Jewish educational institution servicing the Jews of the Atlanta area across the spectrum. There is no religious affiliation or prior knowledge required for registration.

Do I need to join a synagogue for my children to attend MSE?
No synagogue membership is needed! As a matter of fact, we aren’t even a synagogue – we are a program of the Atlanta Scholars Kollel, a Jewish outreach organization. Morningside Sunday Experience is our latest way to bring the excitement of Judaism to the next generation!

How much does Morningside Sunday Experience cost?
Tuition for the Morningside Sunday Experience is $200 a year – an incredible value! Even so, we understand that for some families it may be difficult to pay full tuition. Please discuss your needs with the director as there are scholarships and  opportunities for discounted tuition. The Morningside Sunday Experience will never deny a Jewish child the education he or she deserves due to financial constraints. You can pay the tuition on the Atlanta Scholars Kollel website.

What makes MSE different than the average humdrum Hebrew school?
We are aware of the negative association many children have with Hebrew school, and we are out to shatter those perceptions. Teachers invest a tremendous amount of effort into making the learning engaging and fun. At MSE, we value a good time, and we even sit back and get silly sometimes.
