Our parents and students are all enthusiastic learners and will be co-authors of our religious school program going forward.

Religious School


Welcome to the Barbara Kapitansky Religious School at Congregation B’nai Harim. We are glad to accept the registration of any school aged children of members in good standing. School will begin Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 at 9 am.

Classes will continue to meet on Saturday morning before services according to our school and temple calendar. On the Saturdays when there is school, students will be expected to stay for as much of the service as possible. Hearing the prayers and songs makes learning easier and more pleasurable. It is our hope that parents will join the children in class and at services. In that way, students and their families become comfortable with our traditions so that they will be able participate meaningfully. Students will understand that Jewish learning is a lifelong process that their parents truly value for themselves as well as for them.

This year we will also welcome the participation of other interested adults in our religious school class meetings at 9 am (before services begin at 10:15.) Adults and children will be encouraged to help out with or create their own projects as we transform what we learn into meaningful Judaic art, learn songs or take the learning outside to our meditation path.

Religious School tuition this year will be $180 per child for the school year.  An additional registration fee (for supplies) of $40 per family is required for a total of $220. There is nominal charge of $50 per adult without children.  Register here. Need-based scholarships are available. Find your assignments here

A deposit of $80 per child, the $40 registration fee per family as well as the completed application form for each child are due by September 19.

Payment in full is due by November 1, 2015

Private Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons are available to eligible students at an additional cost.
