Religious School

Our Religious School program is based in Jewish tradition and reflective of modern Reform beliefs. Our curriculum inspires learners to build a lifelong connection with Judaism and a strong Jewish identity.

We believe in a whole child education

Learners who attend from PreK through 12th grade go out into the world as knowledgeable Jewish adults, with a strong sense of their Jewish identity and eager to continue their Jewish learning. Our curriculum includes opportunities to engage with our tradition through language, music, movement, and more.

PreK-6th grade participate in various enrichment activities during their Sunday morning classes.

  • Music
  • Hebrew Through Movement
  • Library Time
  • T’filah (worship)

7th – 12th grades

  • Field trips
  • L’Taken Seminar from the Religious Action Center
  • Overnight retreats
  • Tours of Jewish Philadelphia.

Family Engagement

We believe that we are partners with families in helping form a child’s Jewish identity. Each year includes opportunities for children and parents to learn together. Learning that takes place at TBS is meant to enrich and enhance what takes place at home. Bringing families’ unique stories and experiences also enrich the learning for our entire community. Students and their special adults come together for learning on Sunday mornings. Each grade also attends a Shabbat dinner with their family during the year when their class will help lead Shabbat services.
