Virtual Learning at the Bernard & Alice Selevan Religious School

Although “school” is not meeting in the usual format. Learning is still happening and encouraged through the following ways between now and Shavuot. Although physically separate, as a community, we are here for you and would like to connect. Please be in touch with Justin at to discuss any concerns or interests so that we can ensure more needs are being met and that you maintain the important connection to community.

Connecting is important! The weekly activities such as Trivia, Cooking, Q/A with the Rabbi, and Kabbalat Shabbat all provide the chance to see other members of the community.

T’fila Experiences

Our Religious School regularly includes a t’fila experience. Join in with Haz in one of the two following opportunties weekly. It’s a musical way to enter Shabbat. Listen for the secret word from Haz during Kabbalat Shabbat Underground from 6-7 and email that word to us at to have your attendance counted.

Shoobie Doobie and Kabbalat Shabbat are your chances to see everyone in our community.

Shoobie Doobie Shabbat @ 10AM on Friday for our kindergarteners.

Kabbalat Shabbat Underground (6pm) or GA Jr. Sing with our community to welcome Shabbat each week. I am working developing a slidedeck of the t’filot which you can use to follow along. (Your feedback on the slides are welcome.)

Worldwide Synagogue Sing 11am every Sunday.


Sefer Safari

Hebrew Tutoring

Each week, students have the opportunity to have 20 minutes of direct Hebrew instruction with one of our Hebrew tutors. Students are encouraged to complete assignments between classes to keep up their knowledge and acquire Hebrew mastery.

If you have not signed up yet, Justin is happy to assign a tutor and get Hebrew learning underway.


Pure Enrichment

Jewish Just Dance

Click here for the YouTube Channel of Jewish Just Dance, brought to us through the JDC. If you have the knack for dancing and record ability, tell me and make a video! (It’ll be great to share.)

Netflix in Hebrew

Screentime is plentiful and addicting. Did you know that you can have Netflix shows dubbed in Hebrew? Beyond our individual preference panels, I have one profile (for the kids) that takes their favorite shows and puts them in Hebrew. Click here to do this too.
