It’s not too late to register children in the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community Hebrew School. Congregation Shir Heharim (Song of the Mountains), the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community, offers a once-a-week religious school for youngsters from the age six up to thirteen or older. The school offers a vibrant child-centered program that teaches Hebrew language studies as well as songs, stories, prayers, holiday observances, customs and traditions, history, current events, and all things Jewish. Students can begin school at the age of six. Anyone who is planning to become a bar- or bat-mitzvah must be enrolled for a minimum of two years.
Classes meet at the synagogue at 151 Greenleaf Street in West Brattleboro for 31 Sunday afternoons during the regular school year, from 3:30 to 5:30. The first day of classes this fall will be September 11th. Tuition is $350 for children of BAJC members and $700 for children whose parents are not yet members. Scholarships are available in cases of financial need.
