Hebrew School Registration 2024-2025

Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in
Kane Street Synagogue's Hebrew School
for Pre-k through Grade 7
and Bogrim teen program 


Jewish learning and community are more important than ever.
And more fun too.


Our Hebrew School program goals arise from the values we hold dear:

• kindness (ẖesed) • wisdom (ẖokhma) • 
• limmud (substantive learning) • generosity (tzedaka) •
• community (kehilla) • simẖah (joy) •
 • connection to Jews around the world (klal Yisrael) •

Classes start the week of September 9, 2024
and go through May 29, 2025

Children who are Jewish or in the process of becoming Jewish may enroll.
Children with a non-Jewish mother who have not formalized their Jewish identity through mikvah should be in touch with Rabbi Val so she can guide you.

LEARNING THROUGH DOING

As you enroll your child/ren, please be aware that in addition to the weekday classes for children, we also have youth/family services almost every Shabbat morning, along with holiday services.

These services are part of the curriculum and are meant to accompany weekday classes, in order to enrich your children's learning: The services allow you and your child a chance to celebrate, participate, and learn with their peers in a setting which is geared to stimulate the awe, wonder, energy and questioning of children at their developmental stage.

Please take advantage of these services—they are an opportunity to deepen your connection to our community and with other parents and families.


The minimum number of services that we expect children to attend over the course of the school year (September-May) are as follows:

8 services in Kindergarten and Grade 1 
12 services in Grades 2 and 3 
15 services in Grades 4 and 5
18 services in Grades 6 and 7


Please provide a response to proceed.

Synagogue Membership Requirement

Enrollment of your child/ren in any grade in the Hebrew School (except for Bogrim/8th Grade+) requires household membership of Kane Street Synagogue because we want you to feel you and your family can fully engage in Jewish life here and take advantage of all the congregation offers. Tuition does not cover all the costs of Hebrew School. All member's dues and donations help to support our Hebrew School and family programs.

The membership year runs from August 1 to July 31. Dues payments can be arranged with the Synagogue office. Membership is automatically charged in August unless a resignation is submitted in writing. By September 5, you must either pay dues in full or set up a payment plan to cover the cost of dues in order for your child to attend Hebrew School. 

If you are unsure of your membership status, or have other questions around your current dues or tuition obligations, please reach out to the Synagogue's Executive Director Mickey Dobbs mickey.dobbs@kanestreet.org.

For families joining later in the school year, member enrollment should occur prior to, or concurrently with registering for Hebrew School.

Please note that your child/ren will not be able to start the Hebrew School program without your household's membership enrollment and payment or payment plan in place.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact RabbiVal@kanestreet.org.


Financial circumstances should not be an obstacle to your family becoming part of our community, or prevent your children from learning about their Judaism. We want to help!
Please contact us to schedule a confidential discussion.

By selecting this option in the affirmative you commit to enrollment in Kane Street Synagogue membership for your household no later than the beginning of the Hebrew School academic year for which you are enrolling your child/ren.

Thank you!

Please proceed with completing this form to enroll your child/ren in Hebrew School, including submitting payment in full (or initiating a payment plan).

Once completed, please reach out to RabbiVal@kanestreet.org and/or contact membership@kanestreet.org to start the Membership Enrollment process.
