“Take to heart these instructions with which I charge you this day. Impress them upon your children. Recite them when you stay at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:5-7)


Mishpacha Family Education

Family involvement and participation are integral parts of our Beit Sefer Shalom Religious School program. They demonstrate that Jewish commitment and involvement do not begin and end with becoming B’nai Mitzvah, but are lifelong endeavors, and that the family is the cornerstone of Jewish living.  


Opportunities for families include: 

  • Yom Horim parent-child learning days including trips to the Community Mikvah, Westlawn Cemetery, the Illinois Holocaust Museum, and various hands-on social justice opportunities 
  • Shabbat Mishpacha Friday evening services featuring family dinners and students leading on the bimah 
  • JK-2nd Grade Junior Congregation monthly on Sundays during Religious School 
  • Consecration of new students as part of our community Simchat Torah celebration 
  • Kabbalat Torah Graduation Shabbat, celebrating our Crown Family High School Senior Seminar participants and 8th-12th grade teen Madrichim (teacher assistants) 
  • Family holiday celebrations on Sundays, including Chagigat Chanukah and the Purim Carnival
