Dear Parents,

As we look ahead to next year we want to thank you for entrusting your children to our Kulanu Learning Program.  The next school year, 2020-2021 will be the fifth year under the leadership of Gina Fass, Director of Kulanu Learning Program.  We are so pleased by the positive changes that have occurred since she has arrived.

Mazel Tov to our new members and families that are joining our program this year.  We are excited to welcome you into our Bet Torah and Kulanu community.

Through monthly Shabbat Kulanu, family programs, holiday celebrations, social action opportunities and classroom instruction, the Kulanu Learning Program emphasizes the following values:

  • Involving parents as learners and partners in the experience
  • Creating a path for Jewish learning to lead to Jewish living
  • Shifting time to more shared sacred time together
  • Flexibility and choice for families
  • Intentionally strengthening relationships and friendships

This was our second year of Shabbat Kulanu “All of Us on Shabbat,” our monthly Saturday morning program for families. Our goal was to connect learning to doing on Shabbat.  While attendance was expected for Hey (5) and Vav (6), all grades from Gan (K)-Vav (6) had a place to come and learn on Shabbat.  Shabbat Kulanu offered parents a place to chat, learn, or be welcomed into the sanctuary on Shabbat. As does every Shabbat, we ended each Saturday morning with a lovely community-wide kiddish.

You will notice a slight change in tuition in Bet (2)-Zayin (7).   A strong program requires resources that we feel are crucial to be successful. Hey (5) and Vav (6) retreat fees are included in tuition. They are mandatory requirements of both programs. The Hey (5) retreat is $225 and the Vav (6) retreat is $325.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions. We are excited to begin planning for next year.
