Beth Sholom Religious School serves children in kindergarten through 6th grade.
Shabbat Morning Yourth Programs (see calendar for dates)
In addition to our rich classroom curriculum, Beth Sholom Religious School students experience Jewish arts as an integral part of our program. Music and dance are taught by specialists who combine our classroom curriculum with their creative teaching of Jewish culture. Our dance and music classes reinforce the Hebrew and holiday curricula, as well as introduce our children to contemporary Israeli and Jewish music.
Dance With Rak-Dan
Once a month 2nd - 6th grade students participate in Rikuday-Am, Israeli dance classes taught by Don Schillinger. Don is Philadelphia's premier Israeli Folk Dance teacher. The students learn to dance to a rich variety of Jewish music, including traditional horas, modern Israeli music, line dances, children's songs in Hebrew and much more. Children learn to work as a team since many of the dances require working with a partner or with a group. Most of all, the kids love to experience learning through movement.
Music With Jay Danzig
Jay Danzig has joined the Religious School to teach Shirah. Jay is a musician and choral director, and a music educator who teaches our children Jewish music at his monthly classes in our school. From traditional liturgy to modern Israeli music, the kids learn Hebrew words and phrases through their singing, a connection to Jewish holidays, and most of all, a sense of RUACH!
