Temple Beth Shalom enables its congregants and the community to fulfill the tradition of tzedakah in many ways. One of the most common ways to perform tzedakah is to donate money to one of TBS's various funds.

    Dear Religious School Families,

    Shalom! It is with great excitement that we are beginning the registration process for the 5777-5778 / 2017-2018 school year! Whether you are registering online or with a regular paper registration packet, you are signing your children up for a joyous, meaningful, uplifting experience at Kehillat Torah Religious School this year.

    We are thrilled to be returning to our Sunday home, the New Albany JCC for the fourth year. Having a space that large has enabled our teachers to do more small group work, use classroom space more creatively, and spread out for whole class activities. We also are planning a Back-to-Beth Shalom day this next school year, along with some great field trips.

    Our Kindgergarten - 2nd Grade Program will continue to be fantastic this year, with wonderful teacher, a great curriculum, and a program dedicated to creating a sense of Jewish community among our kids. For all of our Judaic classes we will continue using the Union for Reform Judaism's CHAI curriculum, which has been fantastic for our children.

    Along with specialized programs, we are continuing to strengthen our core programs each year. Our Hebrew students will continue using our new interactive program Kol Yisrael, which has a fantastic online learning portion for students and families to use at home.

    Our fully staffed Hebrew tutoring center, Open Hebrew, for students in need of some one-on-one help in Hebrew, has been a fantastic addition, as well as specialized acclerated classes for those students whose Hebrew skills are advanced.

    We also have a special "Torah Trope" class for our 6th graders, where they learned how to chant the Torah. This class has been very successful. As always, we are proud of our Optional Wednesday Hebrew program, which allows kids in 3rd-6th Grade to learn in smaller classes at their own pace.

    We are extremely excited to be again rolling out brand new programming for our older grades this year. Our Yeshivat Noar 7th and 8th Grade program will be adding a Jewish Ethics Course this year, in addition to our Holocaust studies. Our High School students will continue our new curriculum based on Jewish values and responses to hot button issues like tattooing, modesty, abortion, eating disorders, drugs/alcohol, saving a life and more. They'll end the year learning about the "Jewcy Torah Stories" that they were too young to learn about in the past! We have fantastic new teachers teaching in 7th/8th Grade and High School this year!

    We are so excited to be starting another wonderful year at our Religious School! If you have any questions or concerns about next year or about the registration process, please let me know!

    L’Shalom,
    Rabbi Lenette Herzog

    Dear Current and Future Madrichim,

    Hello! All of us at Beth Shalom are so excited that you’ve chosen to be a madrich (or madricha for a girl) for the 2016-2017 school year. Wooooooooooo! While many aspects of our Madrichim (that’s plural) Program will remain the same in the coming year, some parts of the way it is structured is changing.

    Please read through this letter and the letter linked to below so that you understand all the responsibilities (and all the fun) you’ll have as a madrich(a). Inside you will find a sheet about the responsibilities and expectations of madrichim, a Madrichim Brit (like a covenant) and the actual application, that will tell us lots more about you!

    As was implemented this year, each madrich or madricha will have a specific role. On the application itself you will let us know what your preference is. If you are interested in becoming a madrich(a), but are not interested in being placed in a classroom, please note this on the application and let us know what kind of placement you are interested in.

    Remember, 7th graders have a 2016-2017 Madrichim in Training Program. Anyone in 8th-12th grade should fill out an application to be an in-class madrich(a), a Hebrew specialist, a photographer, a video-maker, an office worker, attendance specialist and more.

    L’Shalom,

    Rabbi Benjy Bar-Lev
