Dear Families,

As we look toward another year of religious school in the fall (Sept '18), we are pleased to utilize our online registration again!  We hope that you enjoy the ease and convenience of our new system.

Useful Information:

·       It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to register 2 children using our form. 

·       All class times and rates are listed at the top of page 2.

·       You will need a digital photo of your child to attach to page 3 of this form.

·       You will need a copy of your child's IEP/504, if applicable, to attach to page 3 of this form.

·       Once you review and confirm your registration you will be redirected to the CBI Annual Commitment Renewal form. If you have already renewed membership for 5779, or are registering a child as a non-member, you may disregard the renewal form and your school registration will be complete. Please contact Pam Hanna at phanna@bethisrael.org or 512-454-6806 with questions regarding Annual Commitment renewal.
 

Please read below for programmatic highlights of 2018-2019!

  

Grades 3-6: The Pathway to B’nei Mitzvah

Our pathway to B'nei Mitzvah reflects our emphasis on the importance of an intensive Jewish experience for our children as they approach their B’nei Mitzvah ceremony.  For children in grades 3-6 who are planning to celebrate their B’nei Mitzvah at CBI, registration and regular attendance on Sundays is required.  In addition, we strongly encourage registration and regular attendance in our Wednesday Midrasha program. 

Midrasha provides the opportunity for students to feel truly comfortable and at home in our synagogue by spending time during the week deepening their connection to tefila (prayer) and learning Hebrew as a living language. In addition to Hebrew Through Movement (3rd & 4th), music, and Tefila, our Midrasha students explore the following topics:

 

Grade

First Semester

Second Semester

3

Shabbat

Passover

4

Being Jewish in the South

Jewish Lifecycle

5

Prayer-Based Elective

Prayer-Based Elective

6

Hebrew-Based Elective

Students in grade 5 who register for Midrasha also participate in our Side-by-Side Hebrew reading instructional program, which meets on Sundays after Sunday School.  

If Midrasha is truly not possible for your 5th grader, Carly Cera will be in touch to create an alternative program with equivalent hours and similar outcomes.

 

Special Needs

We pride ourselves in the efforts we make for each child to succeed in our program. Although Sunday School and Midrasha are just a fraction of what happens in any family’s week, we request open communication about any special needs that your child may have as well as accommodations made during the week. Our special needs coordinator will be in touch with all families who indicate special needs on their registration form to create a specialized program that will benefit your child.  Information provided is confidential, and viewed only by Carly Cera, Sarah Jew, our special needs coordinator, and ultimately the child’s religious school teacher(s).

 

Community-Building Experiences

We believe that continued, meaningful community-building experiences are key in the formation of children and teens’ Jewish identity. Students will spend time in class getting to know their peers and working on team-building.

Join one of our youth groups for additional fun, supervised peer-level activities each month.
Sign up at ATEED, ATT Jr., or ATT on Page 3.

Thank you so much! We look forward to welcoming your children back for another rewarding year of religious school. 

 

Please be in touch, as always, if you have any questions.

Madrichim - 8th-12th Grade Classroom Assistants
Madrichim are teaching assistants and/or program assistants to our Sunday religious school classes. A "Madrich" (male) or a "Madricha" (female) is literally a "guide." Our students love having older role models in class to make Sundays more fun! Our teachers love the opportunity to use Madrichim as guides or leaders in small group activities.                         
Participating in the Madrichim program is great classroom work experience and a fun way to gain community service hours. When you work regularly as a Madrichim at CBI, we are better able to write college and job recommendations! 8th graders can work from 9am-11am to receive volunteer service hours. 9th-12th Graders have the option of receiving monetary payment or volunteer service hours for their time.





Youth Group Membership
Involvement in Jewish youth groups is one of the best proven ways for students to develop and maintain a connection to Judaism throughout their lives. It is important to us that our Jewish kids, pre-teens and teens have a community that they can call their own.
 
CBI youth group events focus on:
  • Social Interaction with Jewish peers
  • Personal Growth and Leadership
  • Social Action & Community Service
  • Worship
  • Jewish Education
Fees
Youth Group fees cover the supply and snack cost for our local programs. Additional fees may be charged to cover the costs of special programs and events held at outside venues. Any extra donations assist members who cannot meet Youth Group Membership costs. Contact Carly Cera to discuss membership options.
