Do I have to be a member of Congregation B’nai Tikvah to send my child to the Religious School?

Families with students in Pre-K through 2nd Grade do not have to be members of the congregation. Once students reach 3rd grade, families need to become members of the synagogue. 

There are multiple levels of membership at Congregation B’nai Tikvah, including Junior Family Membership. Please contact Executive Director, Felicia Lev @, for more information on membership.

My child has a food allergy. What is your policy?

Parents must be sensitive to and respectful of the needs of all of the children in their child’s class. We are a peanut and tree nut free school. We appreciate all Religious School parents’ understanding and compliance with these critically important guidelines. While we make every effort to ensure no such nuts are present in the school, we remain a multi-use facility and cannot guarantee that children will not come in contact with peanut or tree nut residue inside the building. Allergies to other foods (including but not limited to eggs, dairy products, soy, seeds, fruits, honey, or gluten) will be handled on a case-by-case basis in that child’s classroom. Certain restrictions may be placed on all the children in that classroom (in addition to the prohibition on peanuts and tree nuts described above).

How do I know if school is cancelled because of inclement weather?

If we will be cancelling Religious School on Sunday morning for any reason, an email will go out by 8:00am. If there are reported power outages we will communicate via text or call.

Can teens work in the school as teacher-aides?

All B’nai Tikvah members who are 8th-12th grade students are potential madrichim who work on Sunday mornings from 9:00am-12:00pm.

Do parents ever participate in the Religious School?

We encourage parents to attend our Open House, accompany children on field trips, join at special performances, attend family education workshops, assemblies and activities. Parents are also encouraged to attend our family educational programs on Sunday mornings.
