The Religion School at Beit Emanuel was established to provide an education in Progressive Judaism for the children of members. The curriculum includes teaching in both Jewish Studies and Hebrew. While preparation for Bar and Bat Mitzvah is one of the key goals of the school, its purpose is equally to provide a basic and functional knowledge of both current and traditional Jewish values and practices. Classes are held on Monday afternoons between 16:00 and 18:00, with terms corresponding broadly to those followed by government schools. Parents of children turning 10 in 2013 are urged to enrol those children in the Religion School in January 2013. Those interested in doing so are urged to contact the Acting Head of the Religion School, Carmit Verreyne, on Mobile No. 072 146 0359 or e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. Earlier and (under certain circumstances) later enrolments will also be considered, and the circumstances should be discussed with Carmit.
