Our Religious School provides a welcoming and nurturing environment where children learn to cherish their Jewish heritage. Our strength is that we’re a small school that gives personal attention to our students. We strive to bring the joy of being Jewish to our students.
Temple Beth Shalom offers a free Hebrew and religious education to children of dues-paying members. The congregation feels that the education of their youth is the future of Judaism. Classes meet at 4:30 pm on Thursday afternoons.
Our educated, caring teaching staff is simply the best! Rabbi Devora Buchen has worked with the teachers to develop a curriculum which emphasizes Hebrew, rituals, traditions, Torah and holidays. Students also learn to participate in Temple Beth Shalom’s monthly Family Shabbat service. Those joyous services are filled with song and conducted from prayer books specifically written for young people.
Separate from the religious school, students preparing to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah meet privately with Rabbi Buchen.
