Religious Education

The Beth Shalom Religious School (RS) is a synagogue-based program committed to providing an inclusive, nurturing, stimulating, and safe environment for children in our community. In this atmosphere, we seek to enhance children’s sense of the width and breadth of a full Jewish life through study, worship and caring for the community. Following the rhythms of the Jewish calendar, the program will immerse children in Jewish culture, song, and language, and foster their connection with Jewish traditions and values. We use the current knowledge and research of how children develop, grow, and learn as the framework for incorporating the best and most appropriate educational practices, as well as the best ways to foster growth of the spiritual and moral values inherent in Judaism.
