Religion School Re-opens on Monday, 21 January 2013

A reminder to parents, particularly those whose children are approaching Bar/Bat Mitzvah age, that our Religion School reopens on Monday, 21 January 2013 at 16h00, for registration and orientation. Existing pupils, as well as those wishing to register for the first time, should attend Monday’s session to complete a registration form, meet the teachers and attend a brief interview (where necessary).
Parents of children turning 10 in 2013 are urged to enrol those children in the Religion School next Monday. Earlier and (under certain circumstances) later enrolments will also be considered, and the circumstances should be discussed with the Acting Head of the Religion School, Carmit Verreyne.
The Religion School at Beit Emanuel was established to provide an education in Progressive Judaism for the children of members, and is a benefit of membership. 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 4.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m., with terms corresponding broadly to those followed by government schools.
Carmit Verreyne, Acting Head of the Religion School, can be contacted on Mobile No. 072 146 0359, or e-mail address school@beitemanuel.co.za.
