Education (Pre K-12)

Under the leadership of our Associate Rabbi/Educator, Temple B’nai Shalom provides an extensive educational program for students from pre-kindergarten through high school beginning with Consecration and continuing through Bar and Bat Mitzvah, Confirmation and Post-Confirmation.

We strive to enrich our children’s Jewish experience and knowledge so as to strengthen their understanding of God, their identification with the Jewish people and their participation in Jewish life.

  • Pre-Kindergarten through Third Grade students attend classes on Sunday mornings.
  • Fourth through Seventh Grade students attend Hebrew School on Tuesday evenings and continue Jewish Studies on Sunday mornings. During the year prior to the Bar/Bat Mitzvah, students participate in a Tuesday evening class and receive individual instruction from our tutor.
  • Eighth and Ninth Grade students attend the YES program Sunday mornings during which they study two different subjects each semester.
  • Tenth Grade students meet for Confirmation Classes on Sundays to explore topics important to them as Jewish teens. The class writes and then leads a beautiful and creative Confirmation Class service at Shavuot.
  • Post-Confirmation students attend class for advanced study on selected Sunday evenings. This two-year program for eleventh and twelfth graders is the fastest growing program in our school.
