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!
