Torah School Registration is Open! 

Dear Parents,

It’s time to register for next year’s Torah School!  Link to registration is below.  But first:

We are excited about the year ahead.  Between the high level of interest and engagement from so many families, the excellent resumes we’re receiving for our Education Director position, and our staff and lay-leadership’s own deepened involvement, we look forward to welcoming your child/ren in September to a dynamic place, where they and we will grow, learn, experience and explore.  

A full update on our educator search will be coming in the very near future.  Meanwhile, visioning and planning for next year continue apace.   If you weren’t able to join the thoughtful listening-and-visioning session we held earlier this week, please plan to join our next Parent Education Forum -- on Wednesday, May 29, at 7:30pm.  

Even as we bring new ideas and energies and people into the mix, we continue to depend on student registration and family commitment to make our program successful.  We thank you in advance for attending to registration and payment before departing for summer break.   

We ask that ALL registration and payment be completed by JULY 15, 2019.  We encourage and accept a payment plan (ACH) that extends through April 2020, or payment in full by July 15. Attached is an ACH form for your convenience.

As an incentive, if you complete your registration by June 15, you receive 5% off your tuition.  If you register AND pay your tuition in full by June 15, you will receive an additional 5% off the tuition – that’s a potential 10% savings, just for being timely and helping us to plan your children’s program.  (You will see that adjustment in your July statement).

To register, please go to

If you have questions about registration, please contact Marcie Wilson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 301-767-3333.

Thank you for your commitment to Jewish education, and commitment to the kind of community and actions and values for which Adat Shalom stands.  For those participating in our congregational retreat, we look forward to seeing you next weekend.  Wishing everyone a safe, fun, meaningful Memorial Day weekend. 


Rabbis Rachel and Fred; and Marla Cohen, Executive Director
