Register for 2023-2024

June 2023

Shalom Temple Israel of Natick Families,

Religious school registration for 2023-2024 is now live, and we are excited to share plans for this coming year:

  1. All students (PK-Grade 7) will continue to have a class on Sundays from 9 am to 12 pm.  Sunday mornings include Judaics, Hebrew, and tefila.
  2. All students in grades 2-7 will attend religious school on Wednesday afternoons from 4-6 pm.

As we move into the new year, we will continue to provide a high level of content, programming, and new experiences for all grades and families.  Our students will continue to create connections, have the opportunity to ask questions, and learn at a pace that prepares them to mark their Jewish milestones.  Our curriculum will, as always, emphasize Torah, holidays, Israel, Hebrew, social justice, tefila, and spirituality.  We will continue to infuse our learning with nature, outdoor experiences, music, art, stories, and a love of Judaism.  We will create meaningful community and peer structures to support our students and families.

Tuition rates for the coming year remain the same as the 2022-23 school year and are as follows:

Pre-K $180
Grades K-1 member $1150
Grades K-1 non-member $1650
Grades 2-7* $1950

*Families with more than one child in grades 2-7 will be discounted $200 for each additional child.

Each family will also pay a $200 activity fee per child. This fee covers all texts, materials, and special programs.

Temple Israel of Natick is committed to making Jewish education financially accessible.  If finances present an obstacle for your family, please contact a member of our clergy, professional team, or the Vice President of Education, Suzette Freedlander (dspot@rcn.com).  We will work with you.

Together, we will make 2023-24 another stellar year!

Please complete the online religious school registration form (click here) as soon as possible – it helps us plan. We expect it will take about 10 minutes for you to register each of your children, and all information you enter is confidential. If you will have more than one child enrolled in the religious school, you will need to register each separately; however, you will only need to enter your contact information once.
