Religious School

Our goal is to provide both an educational and enriching learning environment for all Religious school attendees. We strive to nurture the child’s Jewish identity while simultaneously providing an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable. A primary benefit to our Religious School is the exposure to other Jewish children which can stimulate personal growth for each child and provide a long-lasting bond to the Jewish traditions. We encompass a wide range of learning opportunities that range from Hebrew, Torah studies and Jewish Customs to Educational Games, Stories and Art. This broad educational approach is designed to help all children learn when at Religious School as each child learns differently from the other.
To further cater to the needs of our community, we are continuing the “L’Dor Vador” program for students age 11 through 16 who have not had any training and or have not been Bar or Bat Mitzvah. It is our goal to pass on our traditions from generation to generation. This will be a special two-year program culminating with the B’Nai Mitzvah. These students will be meeting during regular Religious School hours. With the final 9-months of the program, the students will also be attending private tutoring to specifically prepare for their B’Nai Mitzvah. Attendance in this program requires membership at Congregation Beth Shalom. The cost of this program is $325 annually. There will be a B’Nai Mitzvah fee prior to beginning the 9-month tutoring program. We believe every child should be afforded the Jewish experience despite any circumstances. We look forward in working with the family to encourage this significant life goal.
Please do not hesitate to call the school administrator if you have any questions, concerns or comments regarding our Religious School. You can reach us at or 813 681-6547.
