Copy of Kehillat Torah Religious School 2019-2020

 Come Join Our Community Of Learners

Dear Religious School Families,

Shalom! It is with great excitement that we begin the registration process for another joyous, meaningful, uplifting experience at Kehillat Torah Religious School year 5779-5780 / 2019-2020 school year!


Please join us August 25 for our Back to Beth Shalom Picnic at TBS! Our first day of religious school will be Sunday, September 8 at Camp Hoover, and our first regular day at the New Albany JCC and Open House is Sunday, September 15. We are thrilled to return to our Sunday home, the New Albany JCC for our fifth year. 


Our Kindergarten - 2nd Grade program will continue to be a program dedicated to creating a sense of Jewish community. Our 3rd-6th grade Hebrew students will continue using the Kol Yisrael book series, a curriculum designed by Hebrew teacher Galit Golan, prayer books, and supplemental learning with games, music and services. Throughout the morning students also connect with their Jewish heritage through music, prayer services, electives and other activities. 7th grade will continue learning about hot button issues, along with a unit on the Holocaust. Our 8th-10th graders will focus on Jewish topics in electives along with our Confirmation track. We will also build on the strengths of our madrichim program as a fun, professional environment! 

Our students also have opportunities to have special off-site experiences, including a family fun day at Camp Hoover; 6th grade retreat; 10th-12th grade confirmation trip to New York; and Mitzvah Day! Families also gather throughout the year with Grade Breakfasts and Shabbat services. During Sunday mornings Rabbi Bar-Lev and Rabbi Kopans offer special adult education for parents too!


All of this is made possible by our students, madrichim, parents, teachers, faculty, and religious school committee.


Registration automatically rolls over for current students. You only need to re-register if you have:
-  A new incoming student
-  A 3rd grade student beginning Hebrew (and 2nd session)
-  Any information changes!

A new vaccination form is required for all families before the start of the year. Please find it under the Religious School tab or by clicking here. Thank you for ensuring the health and safety of our religious school.


If you have any questions or concerns about next year or about the registration process, please let us know!


Rabbi Lenette Herzog, Education Director
Angelo Dunlap, Administrator
Rabbi Benjy Bar-Lev, Senior Rabbi

Medical Contacts


For other medical specialists we may need to contact on your child's behalf, such as allergists.

If you are unavailable in the event of an emergency, we will contact this person.

Please use separate paragraphs for each child in the fields below.

In order to accommodate teaching styles and to help your child(ren), please describe any learning problems or issues your child(ren) may have. This should include behavior, medical or emotional issues and learning disabilities.

Does your child(ren) take medication on a regular basis that we should know about? Does your child(ren) take medication during the secular school day that is not taken on the weekends?

If your child(ren) has/have a life threatening food allergy, please be clear about treatment for exposure! If your child(ren) has/have any allergy it is your responsibility to provide proper medical support in the TBS office. We will label and keep epi-pens, antihistamines or any other needed supplies in the office for your child(ren).

Please also feel free to call us at the TBS office to further discuss any needs your child(ren) may have.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. In order to make our Religious School enrollment more efficient, TBS has created this Universal Permission Form and Release. This form and release allows your child or children to participate fully in all activities of the Temple Beth Shalom Kehillat Torah Religious School (TBS) during the school year. This form and release covers all Religious School activities located on or off the premises of Temple Beth Shalom and the New Albany JCC.

This is an opt-out form. This means that you will have accepted and agreed to the terms of this Universal Permission Form and Release unless you check one or both of the boxes below and sign and return the form to TBS before the first day of Religious School.

By accepting and agreeing to this form and release now (in other words, by not opting-out), you are granting Temple Beth Shalom permission to include your child or children in all Religious School activities without the need for separate permission forms for each activity. You will be informed of all field trips before they occur.

Behavioral Covenant

As a member of the Temple Beth Shalom kehillah (community), your child is expected to consider, while at Religious School and on field trips, the Jewish values of kavod (respect), derech eretz (proper behavior), and tziniyut (modesty and humility), which guide the way we comport ourselves in public and private spaces. Further, lashon hara (“evil speech” such as disparaging remarks), hazing, bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, or discrimination of any sort is contrary to our values and is unacceptable.

Therefore, I and my child acknowledge and agree that my child will abide by all rules, regulations, and directives of TBS and its personnel. I understand that TBS, in its sole discretion, will determine the repercussions for any such violation, which may include removing my child from participating in the activity or prohibiting my child from participating in a future activity.

Field Trip and Emergency Permission Authorization and Release

I give my child permission to attend all field trips sponsored by TBS for the school year. I further understand that transportation for field trips may include walking, charter bus, school bus, van, or car driven by a classmate’s parent or teacher. I understand that there are inherent risks in some of the activities with which my child may be involved. Accordingly, on behalf of myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns and on behalf of my minor child, and my child’s heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns, I fully release and discharge Temple Beth Shalom, Rabbi Benjy Bar-Lev, Rabbi Lenette Herzog, and Temple Beth Shalom’s trustees, officers, agents, employees, contractors, volunteers, and successors and assigns from any and all liability, actions, causes of actions, debts, claims, judgment, damage, loss, or demand of any kind, including claims for property damage or loss and injuries or deaths of persons, arising directly or indirectly from my child’s participation in these field trips. I further agree that if there is a claim against TBS as a result of my child’s conduct, I will indemnify and hold TBS harmless from any such claim.

In the event of an emergency during a field trip, I give permission to TBS to facilitate proper medical care as it deems reasonably necessary while efforts are made to reach me.

Photo and Video Authorization and Release

I expressly give TBS, including any amateur or professional photographers TBS designates, permission to photograph, video, and audio record my child during Religious School and on field trips. I acknowledge that my child's image may be used in a variety of media – including websites, livestreaming, printed materials, and social media – for any purpose connected with highlighting, marketing, and promoting TBS, its Religious School, and their programs and activities without further compensation to the child, parent, or guardian. No image or recording of your child will be sold to any person or organization for any reason. Further, unless authorized by you, no image or recording will include your child's name(s).

The terms of this Universal Permission Form and Release shall be governed by the laws of Ohio, and any legal action relating to or arising out of it shall be commenced in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas. This Universal Permission Form and Release is the full document and constitutes the only agreement between you and TBS concerning the matters described above, superseding any prior agreement, written or oral.

Enter your name; this will serve as your electronic signature.

Have your child(ren) enter his/her/their name(s) and today's date. One name and date per line.
