2020-2021 Religious School Enrollment Now Open

Religious School for the 2020-2021 school year begins on Sunday, October 4, 2020.

At Beth Tikvah we aim to provide children with knowledge of Jewish heritage, a sense of Jewish identity, a positive attitude toward Judaism, a means to connect to the Jewish people and a commitment to lifelong learning and Jewish practices. Beth Tikvah’s Religious School has classes for students in Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. 

Please note we have been developing an e-learning plan to ensure that your children will have the opportunity to continue their Jewish education in person or virtually in the fall. See our Instructional Plan for full details, and for more information, see our Religious School FAQs for Remote Learning.

We look very much forward to a wonderful new school year and guiding your child(ren) through their Jewish journey.  As always if you should have any questions, please feel free to contact either of us.

B’Shalom,
Rokki Parrinello / Mandy Thalhammer, Religious School Co-Principals
