Temple Beth Shalom Religious School offers variety of programs

Star of David, Jewish star

Temple Beth Shalom Religious School begins on an early childhood level of ages 3-5 that meets once a month, a primary level of ages 6-7 that meets twice a 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 3-6 meet once a 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 children 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 lead various prayers in the Family Worship Service, held during the school year and on the High Holy Days.

Temple Beth Shalom Religious School is at 108 Freehold Road, Manalapan. For more information, call 732-446-1202, email education director Nancy Shechter at templebeth@aol.com, or visit www.tbshalom.com.
