We are pleased to announce the opening of our 2019-2020 online registration for The Bernice & Mannie Rabovsky Religious School at Congregation B'nai Tzedek. There are exciting plans in the works as we continue to create Jewish learning that is meaningful to our students and families, relevant to their lives and interests, and fun. We encourage all of our parents to register their children as soon as they can in order to help us ensure we are able to have appropriate staffing and materials to educate all children at the start of the school year.
Please read this entire letter thoroughly as it includes information and scheduling options.
To begin registration, please scroll down to the bottom of this note to the "click here to begin" button. Those who register their child(ren) by June 16th (the deadline was extended!) will be billed an early bird activities and materials fee of $115 per student. Registrations received after June 16, 2019, will be billed the regular rate for the activities and materials fee of $130 per student.
Registering before you transition to your summer schedule is hugely important, so please click below to take advantage of the early bird savings and sign up today for what promises to be a great year!
For students in grades 3-6, even if you're not sure about your child(ren)'s schedule for the fall for Hebrew Small Groups or Private Tutoring, please register so that we know they are coming! We can make changes at a later time, subject to space limitations.
We look foward to seeing you all in the fall!
**The Synagogue Members met on May 16th at 8 pm during the annual meeting to approve the congregational budget for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. Click here to view the rates for the Religious School 2019-2020 tuition.
Please join us after drop off on our first day of Sunday Religious School, Sunday, September 8, for a Back to School Parent Breakfast to reconnect with old friends, meet new ones, and learn more about what is going on in the Religious School. We will cap off our first day of school with an Opening Ceremony from 11:30-noon. On the first day of school prospective religious school families are welcome to join us with their children to experience for themselves the joy and learning our children and families experience.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 301-299-9751 or via email for Beth Knobler, Administrative Coordinator, at [email protected] or me at [email protected].
Thank you very much for being a part of our community. We are excited to learn with your child this coming school year!
All the best,
Ronni D. Ticker
Director of Family and Youth Learning
Here are some tips for successfully registering:
The form WILL ONLY let you continue when you have completed ALL fields marked with a red *. You may type N/A in any field which does not apply to your application.
The form will ask for health Insurance info, Doctor's name and phone, emergency contact information and permission to pick up, their names and contact info. Please have this information ready. If this information changes at any time, please email Beth with the updated information so she can update our records.
We are providing you with a list of possible uses of your child's image. If you don't want to let us use their image you must select which uses you wish us not to authorize. You must Opt-Out or we will assume that you have consented. If you are fine with all the items, you do not check the boxes.
In our mission to provide parents with as much flexibility as possible and students with an excellent learning experience, please provide us with as many options as possible for small group scheduling that might work with your child's schedule.
Private tutoring is an option for students who have scheduling conflicts that do not allow them to attend on Tuesday or Wednesday and for students who require learning accommodations. If you select Private Tutoring due to learning accommodations for your child, please select Private Tutoring and then contact Ronni about placement and fees.
