Brith Sholom’s religious school provides a Jewish learning experience for children in kindergarten through seventh grade. Kindergarten, first, and second grades meet once a week on Sunday mornings. Grades three through seven have classes on Sunday mornings and Wednesday afternoons. Students are expected to attend Shabbat and holiday services.
For the current school year, Brith Sholom and Temple Beth El are combining their religious schools. All grades will meet at Beth El on Sunday mornings. The morning will include a prayer service, Hebrew class, and experiential program. On Wednesday afternoons, Brith Sholom grades three through seven, along with any Beth El students who wish to attend, will have a class that focuses on prayer book Hebrew. In addition, there will be a short segment that emphasizes spoken Hebrew focusing on words and phrases.
Celebration of bar or bat mitzvah
The celebration of the bar or bat mitzvah is seen as a communal as well as family milestone. Generally, a student will seek a bar or bat mitzvah date and training with Rabbi Michael Singer, which will include learning to chant Torah and Haftarah, lead parts of the prayer service and write a d’var Torah.
Rabbi Singer directs the Brith Sholom religious school and teaches in both of the school’s locations. In addition, we are delighted to have as teachers at Brith Sholom:
