Beit Sefer Religious School
Religious school is a cornerstone of Temple Sholom
Our Beit Sefer Shalom Religious School provides an inclusive high-quality Jewish education for students from pre-kindergarten through high school, enabling them to establish a meaningful positive Jewish identity.
The program leads students to an awareness of themselves and an understanding of their Jewish heritage through instruction centered on Jewish beliefs, ritual, tradition and Hebrew language. We nurture a love of Torah and a kinship with the people of Israel.
Our goal is to help young people acquire both the desire and the knowledge to be lifelong learners and active participants in Jewish life.
Classes for pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students meet on Sundays from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm, with a 12:05 pm dismissal. We offer a midweek Hebrew program on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:30pm or Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30pm for children in third through sixth grades, designed to encourage a greater mastery of the language.
Temple Sholom strongly encourages our students to enrich their Jewish identity by attending Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute (OSRUI), the Union for Reform Judaism camp located in Wisconsin.
A pacesetter in Jewish camping, OSRUI offers campers an exciting summer of Jewish living and learning. Temple Sholom offers generous partial scholarships to OSRUI to those congregants who qualify.
