Secular School



Har HaShem aims to create a safe, welcoming and productive learning environment for every child. Please share information that will help us do this for your child and family.


Har HaShem aims to include individuals who temporarily or permanently move, hear, see, touch, think, learn, communicate, process stimuli, and/or experience emotions differently. Our youth education programs welcome all children -- whatever their learning style or distinct needs may be -- working toward creating meaningful and inclusive learning experiences for all.

Our learning specialist on staff, Aryn Miller, works with families to ensure students with different needs are included and helps our educators prepare to accommodate each student's needs.

If you have any information about your child's needs in a learning environment, including diagnosis, condition, educational or social concern, learning difference, challenge with behavior, or any other distinctions of which we should be aware, please indicate below. We will reach out to you for more information.

Diet and Allergies

At Har HaShem, all food served in our Youth Education programming is kosher style and nut free. We do not serve pork, shellfish or nuts. We do not mix meat and dairy at a meal. 

If your child has dietary restrictions, please tell us below.
Please tell us about allergies or other restrictions not listed above.


Please choose grade level and any options specific to your children's grades.


Hebrew instruction at Har HaShem is individualized. Students work one-on-one with a m'amein (tutor/mentor). Katherine Schwartz, our Director of Lifelong Learning, meets with all families entering 3rd grade or new to Har HaShem to explain program and set a course of study.

Individualized instruction is required for bar or bat mitzvah.

Mazal Tov! (Congratulations!)
Fifth grade is when Har HaShem begins preparing families to celebrate Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Some children begin earlier and some children start later (and celebrate later).

Please let us know your plans or interests.
We'd love to celebrate this milestone with you at Har HaShem as well!
We would love to have the chance to talk with you or hear your thoughts about Bar/Bat Mitzvah!

Har HaShem has three great youth groups!
You will begin receiving emails about events for your 3rd to 5th grader (Tzofim) and 6th to 8th grader (JYG). There are no fees to be on the list, but individual programs may have fees to participate.

BTY membership, for 9th to 12th graders, includes dues to NFTY (National Federation of Temple Youth). Individual programs may have fees to participate.

We hope to see your child(ren) learn and engage in our exciting youth groups!

Early Registration 
Har HaShem offers a $70 per family discount for families who submit all registration materials and pay all or at least 25% of tuition and fees by June 15. Please note: if any materials are incomplete or payment is not received, you will not qualify for the discount. And the discount is not applicable to BTY membership.

Late Registration Fee
To assist us in preparing for the coming school year, we ask that you register your child prior to August 1. If you complete registration after August 1, we regret that we will assess a $100 late fee for the family. The easiest way to avoid the late fee is to register now.

Early Withdrawal
The family must notify the school administration of the child’s withdrawal from the program. Tuition will be refunded IN FULL minus a $150.00 processing fee if done prior to the 4th class session, October 13, 2019. After the 4th week, there will be no refund.

New Members, please note:
New members joining the congregation prior to the beginning of the school year and registering children for religious school will receive a $70 per family discount on tuition regardless of date, until the beginning of religious school classes. New members are not subject to the late registration fee, which will be credited in the office, once registration is submitted.

Har HaShem membership is required.
Har HaShem operates the religious school for the benefit of its members. By submitting this form, you agree that you will join the congregation and fulfill the obligations of membership during the 2019-20 year, including making a membership contribution (Brit Tzedakah). Contact Lisa Webber to join Har HaShem.

Whether or not you contact us, we will add your name to the membership roster and add Sustaining Brit Tzedakah ($1,980 a year) to your account. Congregation Har HaShem never denies membership for financial reasons. If you would like to discuss financial alternatives, please contact Alan Halpern.
This is the total of tuition for your children and membership in youth group, if applicable.
