Religious School Policies and Forms

Thank you for your interest in our outstanding religious school program.

Shabbat Service Attendance

We strongly encourage families to attend services on a regular basis. Students have been given cards to use to record attendance at services. Shabbat Hallelu is a great option.  Evening Shabbat services begin at 7:30 pm. Learn more about Shabbat services at TBO.

Important Allergy Information

Our school strives to be cautious concerning nuts and nut products coming into the temple. While we ask that all foods sent to school be nut free, we cannot make any guarantees. If you have any concerns in regard to any food allergy your child may exhibit, please feel free to send in separate food for your child to be kept in the classroom to eat when food is part of a lesson or celebration. These items should be packaged and marked clearly with your child’s name and teacher’s name. While we strive to make lessons and celebrations involving food safe for all of our students, we urge you to make the best choice for you and your child. As always, if you feel more comfortable being present when the food is being served, we welcome you to come and volunteer to be present at holiday or Shabbat celebrations.

If you have any questions regarding this subject, please feel free to contact our Religious School Office by phone 201-722-2810 or by e-mail.
