Religious School News 10/11/2018

Dear Parents and Friends,

What lovely first days of religious school! I was happy to see the smiling faces of many of our TBS children on our first Sunday morning, September 16th. And I have seen many happy faces in the past few weeks, too! It is not too late to sign your children up for school, if you would like information about our program, please reach out to Rabbi Rachel Brown at

Religious school is a commitment of time and faith and I appreciate that many families from TBS are willing to make that commitment. I have three grown sons, and all three attended religious school, my youngest here at Temple Beth Shalom. I hope you will all welcome Rabbi Rachel to our community and give her time to become familiar with all of you and your children. I’m sure she would love to get to know all of you and would love to share her ideas and experiences with you! If you have questions about fees or billing please feel free to contact me, or any other executive board member. I have tried to give Rabbi Rachel accurate information about emails and students, but I may have missed a few students. If you have not received information regarding registration, I apologize! Please contact Rabbi Rachel at the email provided! If you are interested in helping with any aspect of religious school, such as being a part of a parent organization, please contact me at

Many thanks for sharing your children for this journey of learning about Judaism!
