PRTT 2022-2023 academic year

A new year brings a new Shehecheyanu Moment!

We will be back in person!  And in addition to in person instruction, we will still have a virtual Hebrew option midweek! We can always find something for which we are grateful - even in these times when a quick response to changes is required. May God continue to grant us life and sustain us through these times as we create new connections together: students, parents, and teachers. As we rediscover community, we will stretch the boundaries of our Jewish world at CBI. One thing has not changed: the most important thing is to take care of each other and to be together so that we can continue growing Jewishly.  

Our task force continues to provide guidelines, and we will do our best to pivot quickly to the changes we need to make in order to promote health and safety. We will gather outdoors in our playground and courtyard spaces, as often as possible, weather and heat permitting. 

Sunday sessions for grades Kindergarten through 7 will meet in person from 9:30 to 12:00.

Hebrew classes for grades 3 to 7 will have a choice: in person Tuesdays or Wednesdays (minimum enrollment numbers required) from 5:00-6:30 or virtual Tuesdays or Wednesdays for one hour of Hebrew and Tefillah (prayer) on Wednesdays between 4:30 and 6:30. Students will be placed in small groups according to Hebrew skill level. 

Please head over to
 PRTT on Facebook to stay up to speed with what we are doing. 

We’re ready for some Jewish community! We've got this!


PRTT: Makom Sheli!

Warm Regards,

2022-2023 Schedule

Pauline Rivkind Talmud Torah Religious School

Congregation B’nai Israel welcomes you to our Pauline Rivkind Talmud Torah Religious School! We are excited to partner with you to ensure that your child continues to build a rich foundation of Jewish knowledge in our warm and nurturing environment.

We recognize that children have differing learning styles. At CBI, we are committed to helping every student reach their full potential by providing experiences and instruction sensitive to the unique motivation and spark that exists in every child. Classroom experiences rely on art, movement, journaling, and multi-media techniques to engage our learners.

We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with The Institute for Southern Jewish Life and will now use their spiraled curriculum. Throughout our curriculum of Hebrew, Bible, History, and Holidays we continually seek to reinforce our special relationship to our faith and to each other by identifying the common thread of Torah and ethics. We place special emphasis on Tefillah (Prayer) and Tzedakah (Righteousness) to further enhance that goal.

We are very excited to have you join our community, and we take our mission seriously: from generation to generation, CBI leaves no-one behind! We welcome family participation in our school, and we look forward to getting to know you!

Email our Director of Lifelong Learning, Maureen Sechan, for information on how to register your child or call 727.381.4900 ext 1011.
