Building Community Together
Religious School 2017-18
Sunday classes for Kindergarten – 7th Grade will meet from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. We will do our best to honor one (1) mutual placement request for Sunday classes. This placement request must be mutual and in writing. All requests must be submitted by July 31, 2017, to Natacha Myers at [email protected].
If your child would benefit from any accommodations to make his/her learning experience more successful and fulfilling, please contact the Religious School office to schedule a time to discuss.
Our hugim program allows students to choose from a selection of experiential tracks which are designed to allow students to explore different ways Judaism can relate to their lives. We will again offer a variety of options which will allow these students to find their own paths into Jewish life.
As part of our focus on developing a foundational knowledge and love of Judaism, our Kindergarten – 2nd Grade classes will continue to explore Torah, mitzvot, holidays, Hebrew, and more through hands-on, engaging activities, including a variety of specialists, such as, music and Israeli Culture.
Students in 7th Grade will attend Sunday morning classes through January 28th.
During our Hebrew classes, we will use movement-based learning to better engage and more efficiently educate the students in the Hebrew language.
We will again be offering Wednesday Hebrew classes for 3rd – 6th Grades from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm. For those students who are able and interested, we will open at 4:15 pm and offer snacks and the opportunity to socialize and/or play games with friends until class starts.
Alternatively, Tuesday and Thursday Hebrew Small Group Sessions (3rd – 6th Grades) will meet either from 4:30 pm - 5:40 pm or from 5:25 pm - 6:35 pm each day. These classes are for students who may benefit from learning in a smaller class environment or students who have a conflict on Wednesday afternoons and will include a short prayer service from 5:25 – 5:40 pm for both Small Groups. There is a $650 fee in addition to Religious School tuition for these classes and their availability is subject to adequate enrollment for each class.
We also offer one-on-one private tutoring with one of our teachers for students in certain circumstances at a rate of $75/session, which will be billed for 25 sessions at the beginning of the school year. If choosing this option, please contact the Religious School office to schedule your child’s sessions.
When registering for the Midweek Hebrew, please indicate your choice of class on the registration form.
7th – 10th Graders will meet for classes on Wednesday evenings. Students are asked to join the congregational minyan at 6:15 pm, followed by dinner at 6:30 pm (provided by CBT) and class from 7:00 – 8:15 pm.
Religious School registration is ongoing. Please contact Beth for more information.
