We are looking forward to welcoming your child to a new year of religious school at Congregation Bet Ha’am!

Here is some information about each program we offer:


Twice a month program 9:00-10:30 A.M. introduction to Jewish holidays and values. Songs, crafts, stories and community building. Family Shabbat service on the second Friday of the month.  Kindergarten students receive a discount of 50% off the normal fees.

Grades 1-6

All families with students in grades 1-6 will join us for Family Shabbat the second Friday of each month in lieu of Sunday school. A combination of family Tikkun Olam programs and school sessions will be offered throughout the year.

Grades 1-6: approximately 3 Sundays a month, 9:00 – 12:00 noon

Grades 7

A credit based program, the Gesher (Bridge) program meets twice a month for a combination of social events and learning.  Students earn additional credits by participating in a variety of community activities.

Grades 8-10

Chavayot (Experiences) a credit-based system that will allow students to choose from dynamic experiences on Sunday evenings, 5:00-7:30 pm, as well as a variety of offerings with varying schedules and commitments.


It costs approximately $1300 per student to maintain the high quality, Jewish education that Bet Ha’am offers to our students.  Because of the value that our congregation places on teaching the next generation, we are pleased to be able to continue to subsidize our program to keep it affordable for our families.  As always, if your personal circumstances require you to request relief, please contact Rabbi Saks at ravsaks@bethaam.org>> for scholarship funds.  And, if your personal circumstances enable you to give a little more so that another student can more easily attend our program, we would be grateful for your additional support.

A 10% non-refundable registration fee will hold a spot for your child.  This registration fee is deductible from the total school fees, which are due in full by Sept 8, 2017.

  • Registration – June 5 to August 15: $440/child

Pay Member Dues

Bet Ha’am plays an important role in all of our lives, providing an open door for all during High Holidays and throughout the year.

The need for supporting the Annual Fund cannot be overstated. These unrestricted funds ensure we can cover our basic, day-to-day needs and meet our budgetary responsibilities, from salaries to building maintenance to Hebrew School supplies.

Membership dues do not cover the full cost of Bet Ha’am’s operations. We rely on the generous support of our members and friends to make Bet Ha’am available to all, regardless of ability to pay.


Judaica Shop

Congregation Bet Ha’am’s Judaica Shop is establishing itself as a leading regional opportunity for unique Judaica jewelry, holiday gifts and supplies, children’s items, and everyday items.  The Judaica Shop is open 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM Tuesday-Friday and Sunday mornings when our Religious School is open.  Please call (207) 879-0028 for inquiries or requests for special order items.  This page will soon have photos and ordering information for specific Judaica items.
