City Shul School

     

         

For this coming year, we have partnered with UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, to move to an online application model for subsidies and tuition support. UJA is undertaking this modernization to make the system more accessible, transparent and secure.

Strengthening Jewish identity and education is one of UJA Federation’s top priorities, and they firmly believe that access must be available to all Jewish children notwithstanding hardships families may be facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is why UJA is also working to increase the investment in tuition relief this year.

City Shul School believes it is our shared duty to ensure that every child has the opportunity for  a Jewish Education, as it is fundamental to the future vibrancy and vitality of our community. 

Every family with children registered at City Shul School is encouraged to apply for tuition relief this year. We are living in an exceptional time and the UJA Federation has promised to assist families with tuition costs for children enrolled in a Jewish education program. This assistance will not cover full tuition costs and the amount will vary based on need however, everyone who applies will receive some relief. Everything you need to know to apply for this program is detailed below:

  1. If you have already registered and paid for school, you can still apply as the amount you will receive will be applied to your City Shul account. 
     

2. If you have not yet registered for school, please register first, and then complete the required forms for assistance. 

Contact Nadia Oliveri for next steps for School Registration and Tuition Relief: learning@cityshul.com

NOTE: This also includes non-members registered for school in grades JK-3

Deadline to apply for tuition relief is September 1, 2020.

Privacy and Security

UJA Community Scholarships is a secure online platform for families to complete the application process. City Shul School acknowledges that the application requires families to disclose sensitive personal and confidential information. It is important for you to know that we continue to take the role of custodians of your personal and confidential information seriously. 

As this new online system is designed to protect family information, a robust privacy program has been developed, and scrutiny was used in choosing a secure platform. The selected vendor provides safe and secure data collection to several large companies, including Ontario Trillium Foundation and The American Academy of Neurology.     

Beyond the administrator of the site, the UJA Staff and our City Shul Staff will NOT have access to families financial profiles. Data will be used anonymously for considering trends and financial allocations.

Jewish Learning for Jewish Living

At City Shul School we believe that learning comes from doing. We infuse our learners with Jewish learning for Jewish living where each learner experiences the diversity of Jewish life through being a part of the larger Jewish world.

City Shul School focuses on an experiential and child-centred Jewish living curriculum (Torah, Avodah, G’milut Chassadim). Our integrated programming includes the arts (drama, music, dance, and multi-media), Jewish ritual, holiday traditions, Hebrew reading, and history. Our curriculum is explored through lively discussions, engaging centres and hands-on activities, field trips, family learning days, and holiday events. Our partnerships with UJA ’s Shinshinim program, Shoresh, Ve’ahavta, and Jews Of Colour Canada facilitate a deeper connection and understanding of Israel, our environment, Tikkun Olam, and supporting diversity and inclusion.

Our Journey continues weekly on Wednesdays from 4:30-6:30 (approximately 30 sessions/year).

School begins in JK until Pre-Bar/Bat Mitzvah (Grade 7).

We now offer registration for Non-members in our JK-3 years inclusive.

For all City Shul School inquiries and to apply, please contact our Director of Jewish Learning, Nadia Oliveri at learning@cityshul.com
