Our Prozdor Program (6th – 7th Grade):
Classes meet Saturdays 10:00am-12:30pm & Tuesdays 4:30-6:30pm
*Students enrolled in a Jewish Day School attend Saturday classes only.
Prozdor provides students with opportunities to delve deeper into various subjects within Judaism.
Tuesday afternoons include Hebrew and text learning, a workshop with Project DVORA of JFS on healthy relationships, and an elective hour. Electives vary each semester and include offerings such as: comparative religions, Holocaust, text study, Israeli music, visual midrash, modern Hebrew slang, and more.
Saturday morning courses are facilitated by a variety of Rabbis and educators in the CBS community. At the beginning of each semester a calendar will be provided with the session topics, facilitators, times and locations. In addition to class time, students spend time in the sanctuary familiarizing themselves with the Shabbat morning service and supporting their peers who are celebrating their B’nai Mitzvah.
Saturday morning classes include:
- Tefillah Study
- Synagogue Skills
- Time in the sanctuary
- Partners in Parasha
- Conservative Judaism
- Mitzvot Class
- Modern Day Israel
Parent Participation: Parents of 6th and 7th grade Prozdor students are strongly encouraged to attend the first hour of class with their teen each Saturday morning. They are also invited to stay for the the third class beginning at 11:40 each week.
Prozdor Celebrations of Learning: Tuesday students will have 2 opportunities during the year to share their learning with parents, classmates, and teachers. Mark your calendars for December 17th and March 31st.
Participation in Prozdor is a requirement of our B’nai Mitzvah program.
Tuition Pricing 2019-2020
CBS believes that Jewish education should be accessible to all. The synagogue’s budget offsets the cost of Religious School to keep it affordable, reflected in the “standard tuition.” The actual cost to educate each child, retain excellent teachers, and provide quality, innovative programming is higher than the standard tuition, reflected in the “unsubsidized tuition.” Members who are willing and able to are invited to pay the unsubsidized tuition or make a tax exempt donation. Standard fee rates are available to members of CBS. Non-members kindly pay the unsubsidized rate. If you are interested in becoming members, please contact Carol Benedick.
In addition, Prozdor tuition is adjusted depending on whether the student is enrolled in a Jewish Day school.
|Standard Tuition||Unsubsidized Tuition|
|Student Attending Jewish Day School||$1,185||$1,633|
|Student Not Attending Jewish Day School||$1,500||$2,132|
