Speaking about our wonderful religious school... I have never been enamored with the titles of "Hebrew school" or "Religious school". After all, we teach much more than just either "Hebrew" or "religion". In Hebrew, a synagogue is called a "beit k'nesset", or a house of gathering. We gather for prayer, for study and for celebration. Sometimes we gather simply to feel connected.  I wonder if  our religious school might benefit from a name that more adequately describes the variety of activities and the focus of our programs. I love the following options and wonder what you think: 

KESHER - Kesher means "connection": The goals of any synagogue religious school are to forge a connection between the  youth and Judaism. Our school is a vehicle through which to build a lifelong "kesher" to the Jewish community. 

DOROT - "generations" - after all, isn't that what our school is about, bringing up a new generation? 

BEIT NO'AR - "House of youth"

BEIT MIDRASH - "House of study" 

"LAPID" OR "SHALHEVET" - The logo of Adath Shalom is a menorah. A menorah is a source of light and inspiration. A "lapid" is a torch and "shalhevet" means flame. Either of these would be a meaningful way to extend the metaphor of our logo. We have to "pass the torch" and light the flame of passion for Judaism within our youngest members.
