Welcome

We are looking forward to the return of our more regular Shorashim program this year! Following a challenging 2020-2021, we have learned some important lessons to take with us as we look ahead:

•    Our program is flexible and can adapt to the needs of the time.
•    Children, parents, and teachers are resilient and open-minded to different kinds of learning experiences.
•    Temple Beth David is blessed with amazing outdoor space (that we look forward to continuing to utilize)!
•    Mental and spiritual health, home connections, and personal meaning are essential.

We look forward to seeing you for the 2021-2022 year!

K-6 Shorashim Overview

Our Jewish education program begins on Sunday mornings when our students and their parents enter the sanctuary for communal prayer and song. Optional adult learning may be offered when classes start.

Students study a variety of Judaic topics and themes. Grades K-2 begin to learn Hebrew letters and basic Hebrew vocabulary. Grades 3-6 experience engaging Judaic learning experiences in the classroom and hands-on electives based on their interests.

Our K-6 program emphasizes communal connections including holiday celebrations, family Shabbat dinners and services, social gatherings, retreats, and overnights for older students.

We aim for students to engage in relevant Jewish learning and discussion, connect with peers and friends, and feel positive about their Jewish identity.   
 

Grades 3-6 Hebrew Learning

Small groups of students are arranged to provide more intimate and productive learning in one-hour Hebrew classes.

Introductory School Program

Shorashim Religious School registration is open to members of the Temple Beth David community.  Jewish education and life-long learning are central to our synagogue.

If you are interested in trying our education program, we offer an introductory year where you may join the Temple and enroll a child in Grades K-2 for one year for only the cost of tuition. You have a courtesy membership for the first year.

 
We look forward to welcoming your family!
