WEST BRATTLEBORO -- Congregation Shir Heharim, the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community, will begin once-a-week Hebrew school classes on Sept. 8 for youngsters starting at age 6. The curriculum includes Hebrew language, as well as Jewish studies -- culture, history, music, prayers, beliefs, and customs. The school meets on Monday afternoons from 3:45 to 5:45 at the synagogue at 151 Greenleaf St. in West Brattleboro.
Although designed for the children of members, the school will accept new students for one year even if their parents are not yet members. Students planning to become bar- or bat-mitzvah need to be enrolled in the school for at least one full year prior to their bar/bat mitzvah year.
Registration forms and a $100 deposit must be sent in by the end of July to guarantee admission. For more information and for registration forms, contact Faith Schuster at 802-464-2632 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
