ARS Registration 2020-2021

Thank you for enrolling your student in Ansin Religious School (ARS) for 2020-2021! Please note that you must be a member in good standing of Temple Ohabei Shalom to attend ARS (unless your student is in grades K-3 and you are doing our special Trial Year option). ARS costs are $1425 per student this year. 

We are offering two parallel tracks for learning this year – one fully remote, and one fully in-person (until we are told by state officials that we need to switch to remote based on caseloads, etc.) The curriculum will be the same in both tracks – we are using a curriculum that was specifically designed for this moment in time, which weaves together Jewish values, holidays, and the reality of life in a pandemic. We may have multi-age groupings to balance classes in both tracks. Below you will find the details for each track to make the choice that is best for your family. 

More ARS tuition information can be found here.
Registration for grades 8-12 can be found here (the form below is only for K-7 grade).
Please email ars@ohabei.org with any questions. Thank you!



 

Welcome! We are so happy to have you! Please also fill out this New Member Form. If you have any questions, please email Amy Deutsch.

Student 1 Information
 
Track 1 : ARS @ Home
 
Track 2 : ARS @ TOS
Students will have two zoom classes on Tuesday afternoons. The Judaica class will take place from 3:15 – 4:00 pm (45 minutes is the maximum amount of time that is functional on Zoom for students).

Next, students will have a break and take a 30-minute, small-group Hebrew class between 4:00-5:15 (depending on enrollments, we may run two sessions in this time block). Finally, all students from both tracks will join together for ARS Tefilah at 5:15, remotely.


The first week of this class session will be an (optional) in person, fully masked, outdoor opportunity to say hello to teachers. We anticipate this will be on Tuesday, September 15. We will run the afternoon in shifts – 3:15 – 3:45 and 4:15 – 4:45. Everyone will join together at 5:15 from home for Zoom Tefilah.
Classes will run from 3:30 – 5:00. Upon arrival, all students will wash their hands. They will continue to wear masks throughout the afternoon. Next, all students will go to Penn-Spero Hall where they will sit in marked areas on the floor and finish homework or get themselves ready for their class time. This room will be supervised by staff.

Class time will begin at 3:30. This time will include Judaica and possibly Hebrew, but we will also have some small-group Hebrew drop-in classes offered at different times throughout the week. Classroom spaces will include Penn-Spero, the Chapel, and the Sanctuary – with students and teachers physically distanced as much as possible.

(We may need to shift to a staggered pick-up in order to limit congregating in hallway spaces.)
Students will get home in time for ARS Tefilah at 5:15, remotely over Zoom.

We anticipate that the first week of this option will take place on Tuesday September 22, though we’d love these students to join for Remote Tefilah on Tuesday September 15.

 

K-3 only: First year ARS only trial membership (no membership fees paid) is available for additional charge ($750, non-member fee). If the student re-enrolls, the family must join and pays dues at the “Year 1” rate.

Section D: Congregation Community

You may have noticed that at the top of the form we begin with family information. This is intentional. The work of raising and educating Jewish children cannot be done in the school alone, but is a project of the school, the family and the community. You are not just registering your child(ren) for school today, but in fact your entire family. When you come in the building and spend time learning and volunteering with us, you make a powerful statement to your children that Jewish learning is a lifelong process and that we are all on the same team in creating these experiences for them. Don’t underestimate the subtle power of this statement!

We have several days during the course of the year (see calendar for dates) on which parents can participate in programs with students inside and outside of the Temple. Please plan to join us on these days.

In addition to those opportunities to participate we are in need of regular volunteers to make our school work.  Would you consider supporting our school in an ongoing role or a limited engagement?
