Religious School

For the 2024-2025 school year, beginning this fall, we will offer 3 classes for the following age groups: under 5, 6-9, and 10-13. Please contact us if you would like to join in our learning activities!

Regular classes for Bar & Bat Mitzvah are available for the pre-teen children of members, depending on how many children are of age.

We are indebted to the United Jewish Federation of Utah for their support of learning at Brith Sholem.

Adult Education

Once a month, the Student Rabbi leads a study session on a specific Jewish topic of interest. Please check our Calendar for the next Adult Education meeting.

Every year starting in the fall, Brith Sholem offers an 18-session Introduction to Judaism class based on the course developed by the Union for Reform Judaism. Those pursuing conversion at Brith Sholem will be expected to attend all sessions;  members of Brith Sholem are welcome to attend individual sessions of interest. Please contact us to reserve a spot in the class.
