BETH SHOLOM RELIGIOUS SCHOOL
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.
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.
Tikkun Olam High School
Our unique Tikkun Olam High School for Grades 8-12 is specifically designed for our post Bar and Bat Mitzvah students. Twice a Tikkun Olam High volunteers in the greater Memphis community thereby putting our mitzvot lessons of the pre-B’nai Mitzvah years into action. Some of our service projects have included: Serving meals at the Memphis Union Mission, helping at the Collierville Animal Shelter, making a Minyan at the Memphis Jewish Home, working the Daffodil Dash race at the Memphis Botanic Garden, Restoring University of Memphis Hillel House’s Butterfly Garden, volunteering at the Memphis Zoo and many more.
