Religious school begins with pre-kindergarten and continues through high school. Students receive training for Bar/Bat Mitzvah, with confirmation at the end of tenth grade and more educational opportunities through high school graduation. The religious school is exclusively for members of Beth Shalom, supported both by the Congregation’s budget and by tuition and fees. Parents are encouraged to be involved throughout their children’s religious education.
We are excited to welcome students and families to the 2023-2024 school year! We will create a bustling online educational environment this year with many new and exciting options for learning and community. Some programs we are using in the classrooms include Moving Traditions (https://www.movingtraditions.org/)for our 6th through 10th grade students as they navigate the B’nai Mitzvah process and Jewish Identity, a partnership with IsraelLink for our 7th graders to learn more about modern Israel through interactive online lessons. Our younger students will have a deeper exploration of the Hebrew Alphabet and basic Hebrew vocabulary.
Grades PreK-10th will meet on Sundays from 9:00 – 11:15. Music class will be held weekly for students in PreK-2nd Grade.
Grades 3-6 will also meet on Tuesday from 4:30 – 6:15. Tefillah (prayers) will be held weekly for students in 3rd-6th Grade.
Shacharit (morning prayers) will be held for all students each Sunday with Rabbi David.
