Tuition Incentive Program for New Families
Non- need based subsidy
40% off of tuition, up to $4,000
New families are eligible
Includes discounted $500 annual membership dues
An increasing body of research suggests that young Jewish families find financial obstacles to be a significant barrier to participation in Jewish life. A family may feel that quality Jewish preschool experiences are a priority, but financial constraints make that access a strain. Engaging young children in Jewish teachings, prayer, wisdom and fun is a golden window of opportunity unlike any other in a Jewish family's lifespan. It may even promote a lifelong identification with the larger Jewish community.
Each Jewish family that is new to the school and not currently a member of the congregation will be eligible to be subsidized at the rate of 40%, up to a maximum of $4,000 per year, of the tuition cost for the first child in the family attending the Early Learning at Beth Sholom program. The incentive can be awarded for up to four years in total. Each subsidized family will be eligible to receive discounted $500 annual membership dues and be required to be involved with specified synagogue activities.
