FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TEMPLE SHOLOM RELIGIOUS SCHOOL
  • My child has little Jewish knowledge but wants to know more, is this a good fit for them?

At Sholom, we have a variety of learning levels, styles and needs. All children are welcome regardless of background and experience.

  • We are an interfaith family who believes that many faiths should be represented in our home, how will our child fit in?

You will be in good company! With a 70% interfaith community where at least one immediate family member does not identify as Jewish, we understand that each family comes to us with different needs. It is our role to provide Jewish education, relationships and theology while respecting the various spiritual paths that each child brings with them.
