Pre-K-2nd Grade Program:

In Pre-K through 2nd grade students are introduced to the Hebrew language and the Hebrew alphabet. They practice reciting brachot (blessings) for Shabbat, Holidays, and food. They study key Torah texts and practice the skills needed to study a text in partnership with a hevruta (a peer learning partner). Each Sunday, in addition to learning with their grade-level teacher, students participate in Tefillah, an Israel Program with our Shinshin, and a Hebrew lesson with our Hebrew Through Movement Specialist.

Tuition Pricing for 2022-2023

CBS believes that Jewish education should be accessible to all. The synagogue’s budget offsets the cost of Religious School to keep it affordable, reflected in the “standard tuition.” The actual cost to educate each child, retain excellent teachers, and provide quality, innovative programming is higher than the standard tuition, reflected in the “unsubsidized tuition.” Members who are willing and able to are invited to pay the unsubsidized tuition or make a tax exempt donation. Standard fee rates are available to members of CBS. Non-members kindly pay the unsubsidized rate. If you are interested in becoming members, please contact Melani Baker.
