Temple Beth Shalom, Manalapan

Temple Beth Shalom Religious School begins on an early childhood level of ages 4-5, which meets one time per month; a primary level of ages 6 through 7 which meets two times per month for first grade, and weekly for second grade during the week. During these times students are exposed to holidays, Bible stories and Hebrew reading readiness through crafts, music and movement. On weekdays, students in grades three through six meet one time per week to master the tools of Judaism and Hebrew reading knowledge of the Shabbat service, holiday rituals and Bible. There is an optional second day honors program where kids experience life cycle events and a variety of hands-on activities. Some examples of family programming include God Talks, leading Havdalah, creating their own Tallit, and learning to put on Tefillen. Students and families alike lead various prayers in the Family Worship Service, held during the school year and on the High Holy Days. Seventh grade is considered a new beginning, not a completion. Temple Beth Shalom Religious School is located at 108 Freehold Road in Manalapan.
