Religious School at Temple Beth Shalom


Our Mission:

Temple Beth Shalom Religious School is a supplementary Jewish educational school serving the west
valley Jewish families with kids grades K-8.  


Serving the west valley for almost 10 years, TBS Religious School provides a safe environment for Jewish youth to learn, explore and express their commitment to Judaism.  The staff of experienced teachers is committed to three main areas of focus.  

  1. Hebrew: Instruction from basic letter recognition through basic conversational Hebrew. Building a connection to Hebrew as a living language.
  2. T’fillah (Prayer): Exploring basic Jewish prayer and discussing our relationship with God and community.
  3. Yehadut (Judaica):  Creating hands on experiences that deepen students’ understanding of basic Jewish traditions.  


Our school prides itself on maintaining a welcoming, inclusive environment.  Our Parenthood committee welcomes parent volunteers with opportunities to help plan events during the school year.  Connected to our school is our youth group with opportunities for teens (NFTY) and the little ones.



Bar and Bat Mitzvah:

A minimum of two years enrollment at Temple Beth Shalom Religious School is required. The Temple offers a beautiful sanctuary for the religious ceremony. Our social hall and/or auditorium is available for your social event if you so choose. Rabbi Moss and the religious school director offer a series of workshops to the B’nai Mitzvah families prior to the momentous occasion. A Guidebook is provided as a helpful planning tool. The workshops create an opportunity for families to bond as we learn the process and procedures for Bar and Bat Mitzvah in a fun and interactive arena.


Madrichim:

Teens grades 8 through High School, with the leadership of the Youth Director, will work as role models and guides to younger religious school students. More information will come soon.



For more information, please contact the school director.


Temple membership is required prior to registering a child.
