Section C: Release Forms

By signing my name below, my child(ren) have permission to participate in Tifereth Israel (TI) Congregation's Religious School. In consideration of my child(ren)'s acceptance as a religious school student, I hereby waive any and all claims against TI, 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 his/her designee 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 District of Columbia and/or the locality in which a TI-sponsored activity takes place. 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. Field trips may be arranged by TI, and transportation may include bus or vehicle driven by a classmate's parent or guardian.

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

At  Tifereth Israel (TI) we are committed to lifelong Jewish learning. Our program begins with our youngest learners (Pre-K and K) and extends to our teens in 8th & 9th Grade. In order to become Bat/Bar Mitzvah at TI, we expect that students will attend a meaningful Jewish educational program. Attendance at Religious School both before and after B'nai Mitzvah fulfills this requirement. We make exceptions only for students who are enrolled in a Jewish day school, who cannot attend due to family relocation, or who provide evidence of a robust Jewish learning program that is equivalent to the TI religious school experience. If you have questions about this policy, contact Rina Rebibo at rina@tifereth-israel.org.

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 newsletters, on our synagogue website as well as our Facebook groups and other publicity materials. We will not identify students by name in any public posting or release. 

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!

We have several days during the course of the year (see calendar for dates) on which parents can participate in programs with students inside and outside of the Synagogue.  Please plan to join us on these days.

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
There are many impediments to Jewish education but finances should never be one.  We ask that every family commits to some financial contribution, however we are happy to discuss financial aid options for synagogue members. If you select yes, you will discuss your payment ability in a confidential meeting with TI's Executive Director, Jevera Temsky. If you have questions, contact Jevera Temsky at jevera@tifereth-israel.org

Registration Fee  ($50 per student)

Registration fee must be paid with submission of this form to complete enrollment.
