Beth Sholom Religious School (BSRS) provides supplementary Hebrew and Judaic education to students in Kindergarten through 7th grade. The program is designed to impart a strong sense of Jewish identity and provide the skills needed to lead a meaningful Jewish life. Our goal is to offer each child the opportunity to become an active participant in the Jewish community through understanding the rituals, observances and teachings of Judaism.

Based on the student population in a given year, grades are grouped to provide the most efficient learning communities. Working to create a foundation and love for lifelong Jewish learning and living with a core of Jewish knowledge and principles, our curriculum includes the following components. Each of these components is taught in each grade at the appropriate level.

  • Torah – An understanding and love of Torah and connection to God through parsha and text studies.
  • Hebrew Reading – Starting with the alef bet, vowels, and decoding skills in the younger grades and reinforcing reading skills through Tefillah in the upper grades.
  • Jewish Values – Studying Jewish values as they apply to our lives through performance of mitzvot, and recognition of the Jewish value in everything we do.
  • Jewish Life Cycle – Discussing the customs and tradition of major Jewish life cycle events and their importance in our lives.
  • History – Understanding the timeline of the Jewish people.
  • Tefilot – Developing the skills and understanding the significance, history and spiritual meaning of prayers.
  • Israel – Connecting to the history and culture of Israel as well as Israeli geography, politics and current events.
  • Conservative Judaism – Reinforcing our identity through youth and synagogue activities.
  • Holidays – Learning about each Jewish holiday through crafts, stories, songs and texts.

Our Kindergarten through Seventh Grade students attend classes on Sundays from 9:30-Noon, and students in Grades 3-7 also attend Wednesday afternoons from 4-5:30 p.m.

Once a month all of our students meet for Junior Congregation on Shabbat Morning. This interactive and educational experience highlights the meaning and intention of the Shabbat Morning prayers in a hands-on, student led service.
