Religious School Registration Information

Registration Details for Shaare Emeth Religious School

Registration for Members

Register via your Shaare Emeth ShulCloud account. Step-by-step instructions are located below.

Need help logging in? Contact Scott Berzon by e-mail or at 314-692-5307.

PLEASE NOTE: Your registration will not be considered complete without the following:

  • A $100 deposit for each of your students.
  • A secured method of payment for the remainder of your Religious School Balance.

Families enrolling their students in Religious School must be current in their financial obligations to the Temple. This includes Religious School fees, membership responsibility, building fund, and any other charges. An approved payment plan will satisfy this requirement. 

Please contact Scott Berzon to discuss your account. If your financial circumstances cause you to request need-based scholarships, please do not hesitate to contact Rosalie Stein and she will be happy to assist you with this process. No family will be turned away based on financial challenges.

Not a Shaare Emeth Member?*

We would love the opportunity to show you that our community is the right fit for your family. We know that choosing a congregation to join is a big deal and we want you to feel good about choosing Shaare Emeth. That’s why all local community members are welcome to try out our Religious School for your first year by just covering the cost of tuition and a $300 non-member fee. 

Sometime during that first year, we will check in to see how things are going and share more about options related to making an official membership commitment. In the meantime, we hope your child feels at home here and wants to continue growing with us!

If, at any time, you have questions or would like to talk to someone about Shaare Emeth membership, please contact Emily Cohen or Beth Kodner.

*Note: If your child is in PreK, Kindergarten, or 1st grade, they are in JQuest, which is open to the whole community, no synagogue membership required. So the non-member fee will not apply for those grades. More information about JQuest is available here.
