Religious School

Chavurah Beth Shalom is now enrolling students for our Religious School for the 2013-2014 calendar year.

Our Religious School prizes innovative and creative learning in order to educate and inspire our students to fully experience Jewish life.

We offer small classes and personal attention so that each student has the opportunity to learn and grow.

From second grade on, we teach Judaism as a hands-on participatory experience. We hope to incorporate each child¹s natural curiosity into our curriculum. In this we way we encourage children to think of Judaism in a personal and private way. Open communications between parents and the staff is essential to assure the success of our school that offers small classes and personal attention. We also offer one-on-one attention for children with special needs. We invite parents to sit in on some of our classes which range from first grade through seventh grade. Our children actually enjoy being there on Wednesday afternoons.

Our classes take place at the Alpine Community House (located on Old Dock Road, off Old Closter Dock Road, in Alpine, NJ) at the following times:

  • Wednesdays from 3:45 to 5:15 p.m. for grades 2nd - 5th
  • Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. for grades 6th - 7th

School Safety:

Safety during Religious school drop-off and pick-up is our first concern. We ask all parents to observe the following guidelines:

    Do not enter Old Dock Road from Closter Dock Road. Turn onto Main Street and drive around the block leading to The Community House and take your place on line.

    Do not park your vehicles and enter the building to fetch your children. This is extremely hazardous to you as well as to them and it will only slow down the whole dismissal procedure.

    If you drive a car pool, explain to your group that they should wait together inside the building so that we do not have to search for them when your car pulls up and is ready to be boarded.
If you have any questions, please call us at 201.567.7806.

“And you shall teach them diligently unto your children.”
