Little Scholars      


The Little Scholars program was created to offer our youngest students (5-8) a gentle introduction to Jewish Holidays, Bible stories, prayer and the Hebrew alef-bet through stories, songs, arts and crafts. It is never too soon to begin to instill the values of our people into the hearts of our children!

The monthly class lasts from 9-10:15 on a Saturday when services and Religious School are held. We will meet in the small classroom in the vestibule. The cost for this program will remain $50 per child for our temple members. For those non-affiliated Jewish families whose child(ren) will participate in our program, the fee is $100 for the first child and $75 for the second child.

Watch this space for the calendar of dates when Little Scholars will meet:

October 10, November ?, December ?, (Chanukah)

January ?, February ?, (Tu B'Shvat)  March ?, (Purim)

April ?, (Israeli Celebration) May ?,  June ?

We wish you a wonderful school year!

Little Scholars Policy


To allow families who are non-members and have children between the ages of 5 and 8 to join our Little Scholars class.

1. Non-member families whose children join our Little Scholars class are to do so at a rate of $100 per child

2. A 2nd child in the non-member family joining the Little Scholars will do so at a reduced fee of $75.

3. Once Little Scholars reach the age of Religious School (8½  - 9), non-members families must join the temple as full-time members.
