Religious School – PS-7th Grade

The Ethel Honigman Religious School, this year partnered with Temple B'nai Israel of Clearwater, provides Jewish education for kids in PS-7th grade. The Religious School is dedicated to providing its students with a comprehensive Jewish education, instilling an appreciation for and celebration of Jewish identity, and inspiring a commitment to ongoing Jewish life and learning.

The Ethel Honigman Religious School uses the national ShalomLearning curriculum for both Hebrew and Jewish studies, emphasizing Jewish practice, ethics and values, the study of Torah and sacred texts, Hebrew language, prayer, history, holidays, and Jewish culture. Additionally, we strive to create an environment of Ahavat Yisrael and Klal Yisrael – a caring and active involvement in the synagogue, local Jewish community, Israel, and the world-wide Jewish community. Our rabbis are an integral part of the school, and work alongside our teachers and tutors who have a broad knowledgebase and a deep passion for Judaism and Jewish values.

We are proud to be able to offer a highly personalized experience for our students, showing deep regard for the individual worth of each student, recognizing each students’ learning styles and ability level. As such, our Hebrew program is taught through private tutors, ensuring each student the greatest opportunity for success working at their level, ability, and pace. This teaching method is unique to our shul, not being offered in the greater Tampa Bay area.

CBS parents are co-creators in our students’ learning. Parents are active partners in their children’s Jewish education by participating in classroom activities, school t’fillah, Betty Schoenbaum Shabbat B’Yachad (1x/month family Shabbat), home rituals, and ensuring regular attendance. At school-wide programs, family learning events, and children’s Shabbat and holiday services, CBS parents and children have the opportunity to encounter Judaism in creative, fun, educational, and often surprising ways.

Hebrew High – 8th-12th Grade

Our post-B’nai Mitzvah educational and social program enables 8th-12th grade teens to continue their Jewish journey by engaging in activities and discussions about topics most relevant to them. Topics include ethics and values, Israel, social justice, Jewish culture, and much more. We partner with Temple B'nai Israel of Clearwater as well as a few national organizations to expand our learning and social network as well.
