Our Curriculum  

The Temple Beth Shalom Religious School utilizes the CHAI curriculum as its teaching foundation. The curriculum was developed by professionals under the leadership of the Union for Reform Judaism. It is not only used by numerous Reform congregations across North America, but also is a living tool that has experts available to provide training, feedback and adaptation solutions.

The CHAI curriculum offers educators one hour of engaging learning themes based upon “Enduring Understandings”. These Enduring Understandings are based upon Torah, Avodah (sacred or holy work) and G'millut Chasadim (making the world a better place). Acts of loving kindness.
