Section C: Release and Learning Commitment Forms

By signing my name below, my child(ren) have permission to participate in the Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah Academy. In consideration of my child(ren)'s acceptance as a religious school student, I hereby waive any and all claims against Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah, its agents and its employees that may arise out of any injury, loss or damage suffered by my child(ren) during any religious school activity. I hereby authorize the Director of Education, or person designated by the Director of Education, to obtain emergency medical care for my child(ren) in the event such care is indicated. I give my permission for my child(ren) to receive emergency medical care by any nurse, doctor, paramedic or member of a medical staff of a hospital licensed by the State of Illinois. I understand that every effort will be made to notify a parent/guardian prior to treatment.

I certify that my child(ren) is(are) in good physical health. They have my permission to participate in all activities that are part of the regular religious school program. 

By typing my name, I confirm I have read, understand and agree to the above.
Learning Commitment

At BHBE we are committed to Lifelong Jewish learning and aim to provide all students this foundation in childhood.  In order to become Bat/Bar Mitzvah at BHBE, we expect that students will attend a meaningful Jewish educational program in order to achieve this goal.  Attendance at BHBE Academy twice a week from 3rd through 7th grade fulfills this requirement. Students are highly encouraged to attend through 8th grade and some or all of high school as well.   If you have any issue or concern about this policy please be in touch with Aaron Frankel to discuss.

By typing my name, I confirm I have read, understand and agree to the above.
Media Release

From time to time your child’s photo may be taken in our classrooms or special events.  We use these photos in the synagogue newsletter, on our synagogue display boards, the BHBE website as well as private Facebook groups and other publicity materials. I give permission for Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah to use pictures taken of my child during school activities for publicity both internal and external. Photos will not include your child's name unless explicit parents permission is granted.

Section D: Congregation Community

You may have noticed that at the top of the form we begin with family information.  This is intentional.  The work of raising and educating Jewish children cannot be done in the school alone, but is a project of the school, the family and the community. You are not just registering your child(ren) for school today, but in fact your entire family.   When you come in the building and spend time learning and volunteering with us, you make a powerful statement to your children that Jewish learning is a lifelong process and that we are all on the same team in creating these experiences for them.  Don’t underestimate the subtle power of this statement!

There are days on the calendar when parents are required to attend with students, as well as days they are encouraged to do so. (Please see the Academy calendar for more information.) We also nearly always have coffee and bagels available in the rotunda, so you can hang around and shmooze with other parents when you drop your children off! 

In addition to those opportunities to participate we are in need of regular volunteers to make our school work.  Would you consider supporting our school in an ongoing role or a limited engagement?

Section E: Payment Information

In Jewish tradition, it is the job not only of parents but of the community to provide education for children. The BHBE community is committed to this obligation.  As such, our Academy tuition only covers a portion of the cost of our religious school.  Both fundraising efforts like the Purim Carnival and congregational dues heavily subsidize our children’s education.  We are best able to plan appropriately when we know early on how many students to expect in each grade.  As an incentive for you to register early, we offer a discount to families who register on or before June 15th. Regular fees go into effect on June 16th.

Please Note: Due to the current health crisis, there may be some tweaks to the specific timing and format of Academy programming. More information is available at the Academy page of the BHBE website. The basic Sunday morning/Tuesday afternoon schedule with stay the same regardless. We are also introducing one-on-one virtual tutor/mentors to our program, where each child in grades 3 - 7 will work with an individual professional tutor for 30 minutes per week on Hebrew reading, tefillah skills, and more, scheduled at a convenient time.
