School Calendar 2015-2016

You’re welcome to “try out” our school for the month of September 2016 at no charge. Please contact Lori McCloud in the office for further information – she can arrange for the Rabbi or our school committee chairperson or our membership committee chairperson to be in touch with you.  Welcome!!

Religious school classes for grades 1 to 7, with teen classroom assistants participating as well, are held on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 AM and on Thursday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:30 PM, September through May, at The Jewish Community House, 133 High Street, Taunton, Massachusetts.

Our preschool family education program “Shalom Kids” meets twice a month from 9:30 to 11:30 AM.

In months when we hold Shabbat Rishona – the first Shabbat – the educational programming woven through that morning is “school” for the weekend and there is no religious school on the following Sunday. Shabbat Rishona services are held at the synagogue.

Our holiday observances are mainly held on Sunday mornings during school hours and also constitute “school” for our students – and the entire congregation. Holiday observances are held at the synagogue.

Here, in brief, in the schedule for 2015 – 2016.
