Please take note of the following grade-level considerations:

  • 2020-2021 THIRD Graders MUST sign up for Hebrew School for 2020-2021 or find a tutor to keep them on track with their preparation for becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Please reach out to Rabbi Phyllis Sommer if you have any questions or special circumstances.
  • 2020-2021 Seventh Graders must enroll in our 7th grade program, in which 70% attendance throughout the school year is a necessity for becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah at Am Shalom. Seventh Grade Day/Time Options will be available on August 1. Please register for 7th grade and we will be in touch with you!
  • Jewish education doesn’t end at age 13! Our 8th, 9th, and 10th grade programs, taught by our Rabbis and our master teacher Buddy Schreiber, are incredibly engaging and address relevant teen issues. Each class also has a yearly trip. All current seventh graders are HIGHLY encouraged to sign up for our confirmation program. All students in these grades are encouraged to sign up, even if you didn't register or attend the previous year.

11th and 12th grade: We offer our 11th & 12th graders an opportunity to continue their Jewish development through thoughtful conversations about the many topics that matter to them as well as further integration into their synagogue community. More information and registration will be available August 1.

Thank you for your assistance with our school registration process. We look forward to receiving your registration materials soon.

If you have any questions regarding school registration, please contact Rabbi Phyllis Sommer, our Director of Congregational Learning, by email or 224-619-6807 (mobile).
