The Congregation Beth Shalom Religious School was voted "Best Supplementary School" by the readers of the JT News in 2010. We strive to provide our students with a strong foundation in Jewish knowledge, a love of Jewish learning, and a strong Jewish identity. Our program operates on a spiral curriculum, with students building upon their knowledge as they advance from year to year.
