Beth Shalom Religious School

"I need somewhere for my child to be with other Jewish children and learn about what it means to be Jewish." YES! We totally agree! And this is the perfect place to do it.

We understand what it feels like to be the only Jewish student in your class—or even your school. We know what the Christmas/Hanukkah dilemma feels like. Sometimes, it can be tough. Our school, through the wonderful leadership of our Director, Lynn Calnek, hopes to change that experience for your child. Our students enjoy coming to religious school and often share their education with children at their secular schools. They love being a part of a community where they are not "the only one." And, if a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is something Bubbe has always dreamed of for her grandchild, we can help you figure out how to make that happen.

How do we do this?
We have Religious School on Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. during the traditional school year. We teach Pre-Kindergarten (four years and older, must be toilet-trained) through 7th Grade. For our older students, in grades three through seven, we add a midweek session, of either Monday or Tuesday (your choice), from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. During midweek school, students gain a stronger connection to Judaism and Hebrew.

When should I start sending my children to school?
As soon as you can, of course! But, really, this is a very personal question. The sooner your student begins attending religious school and temple regularly, the sooner they can start learning about their roots. If your student has never attended religious school and is in middle school, this is not a problem. We have students who, for many different reasons, do not start attending religious school until they are older; and now, they have decided that they would like to learn more about their religion. Or, maybe they are now interested in becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Whatever the reason, come try it and see if we can help you reach your vision.
