TBE’s 2021-2022 Religious & Hebrew School Registration

WELCOME TO THE TERRI A. GINSBURG RELIGIOUS & HEBREW SCHOOL!

Online Registration IS LIVE!

In past years, we have offered both online and paper registration options. This year, school registration will take place entirely online. 

Scholarships

We know that Covid 19 impacted many families financially, so we’ve frozen tuition costs and made scholarships available to all our members. No child will be denied from receiving a quality Jewish education due to finances. For more details about school scholarships and membership assistance, please contact our Executive Director, Melissa Sigmond, at msigmond@templebethemeth.org.

Our scholarship application process has been designed for greater transparency, fairness, and communication. If you would like to apply for a scholarship for school tuition, please complete our new Scholarship Application Form and submit it to Melissa Sigmond at msigmond@templebethemeth.org.  If you submit a scholarship application form, please do not complete the online school registration form.  Please submit your scholarship application form as soon as possible.  Applications received by August 1st will receive priority status. We will then review all the applications and be in touch regarding your scholarship request..  Applications received after August 1 will be reviewed individually as they are received.

Actual Cost vs. Member Supported Tuition

In our Jewish tradition, the responsibility to educate children rests not only on the parents but on the entire Jewish community.  Our Temple Beth Emeth community takes this commitment seriously.  Each year, a piece of your membership pledge directly supports the education of our youth. Religious & Hebrew School tuition covers only a portion of the actual cost of that endeavor. We are proud to be able to offer this shared-cost educational program.

We also feel we have a responsibility to be more transparent about the actual costs of our core education program. To this end, we have added an explanation to our registration form. If your family is able to do so, we would greatly appreciate any additional philanthropic donations.

Non-Member Registration

If you do not wish to become a member of Temple Beth Emeth, you can still sign up for our Religious & Hebrew school. The non-member tuition cost is double the member cost, so often membership plus member tuition will be less expensive. If you would like to join our Religious & Hebrew School program without becoming a member, please contact Rabbi Daniel at rabbialter@templebethemeth.org.
