Youth Education

 

A message from Brian Avner, Director of Congregational Learning

Dear Congregation Shalom School Families,

We are so excited to welcome you back for our upcoming school year which will begin on Sunday, September 11th.

If you still need to enroll for the coming school year, please click click here.  Our most current calendar can be found HERE, or you can subscribe to our school’s google calendar HERE.

Sunday School

Sunday School mornings run from 9:30-11:30am and begin with all school tefilah (services) in our Sanctuary from 9:30-10:00am.  Grownups are invited and encouraged to join us for that service.  After tefilah, students will go with their teachers back to their classrooms for the remainder of the morning.  Throughout the morning, students will have the opportunity to participate in a number of special activities including: shira (music), ivrit (Hebrew Through Movement), omanut (art), Torah study, and more.

Hebrew School

Hebrew School begins on Sunday, September 11th, or Tuesday, September 13th, or Wednesday September 14th, depending on which day you enrolled.  Boker Tov Hebrew meets from 8:15-9:15am on Sundays, before Sunday School.  Tuesday and Wednesday Hebrew meet from 4:30-6:15pm and include a short hafsakah (break) and tefilah where our students get time to practice the prayers they are learning in their classes.

Madrichim

Our 8th-12th graders are invited to work as madrichim.  8th-10th graders can work as junior madrichim who split their time between helping in the classrooms and continuing their own studies.  11th-12th graders work as senior madrichim who work the full morning in the classrooms. 

Teens who wish to apply to be madrichim can fill out their application HERE.

COVID Considerations

We are grateful for the progress made in combating COVID that will allow us to run our school in a more familiar manner in the coming year.  With all individuals in the school having the opportunity to be vaccinated, we will be allowing teachers to set up their rooms how they choose, rather than distanced.  We will still run HEPA filters in the classrooms to circulate air and masks are optional for all individuals.  We will continue to let you know if/when there are COVID cases in your child’s class and ask you to keep your child(ren) home if they are feeling sick.

Contact Us

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to check in before the year begins, please be in touch at 414-352-9288 x122 or brian@cong-shalom.org.  On behalf of the teachers, staff, and clergy, we are all so excited to learn and grow with you in the coming year.

B’Shalom,

Brian Avner

Director of Congregational Learning
