Elementary Religious School
Temple Beth Sholom's Elementary Religious School is an exciting and fun program for our families to explore their Jewish identity. The family-friendly Religious School provides many opportunities to learn the skills and values of Jewish living in a warm and friendly environment. Our programs inspire our families to create meaningful relationships within our community through innovative academic, spiritual, and social learning experiences. From special trips to music and drama, the learning in the TBS Religious School comes alive in very real and meaningful ways. Our programs strive to give each student the opportunities and tools to develop a strong connection to their community and tradition while creating a confident Jewish identity.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our community!

Why choose the Temple Beth Sholom Religious School?
The families of the Temple Beth Sholom Religious School are fully connected to our vibrant and diverse synagogue community. Our outstanding clergy and staff engage our families and guide our community as we raise our children. From unique Shabbat experiences for students and families to elaborate adult concerts, there are programs for everyone at TBS.
We have a diverse group of families who participate in the TBS Religious School. Our philosophy is to welcome our families into our community and give them the tools and opportunities to grow in meaningful ways. If you feel you don't have a particularly strong Jewish background -- that's ok! We provide formal and informal parent informational classes and our clergy and educators are always available to help. If your family does have a strong Judaic foundation we will provide ways to challenge and engage you in meaningful ways as well.
We recognize that our students have many extra-curricular activities and live very busy lives. One of the focuses of our program is to help our children and families make meaningful decisions about religious life and participation in our community. We work with each family and every student to develop a learning plan that meets the needs of the child and family.
