Better Together Experiences

Jewish Living Experiences for Families with K-1 Children 

Better Together is an investment by Beth Shalom in families having joyful, meaningful Jewish Living Experiences at one of the most critical moments in raising children.  Better Together is open to any Beth Shalom member family with at least one child in Kindergarten or First Grade. 

 As a Better Together Family, you are invited to: 

  • Five specially designed experiences with similar age families that are interactive, meaning-making and creative to help Jewish living come alive for each family. Clergy will be directly involved with each program. 
  • Be part of a robust cohort of similar age families that can grow together, build lasting relationships, and root your children’s Jewish identity in positivity. 
  • Build family relationships with the Beth Shalom Clergy. 

Every Better Together Family who participates in at least four Better Together Experiences will receive a $400 scholarship per K-1 student to either The Polsky School or HBHA.   

For The Polsky School, this brings our $580 tuition down to $180 for the entire year. The credit will be added once you have attended the Better Together programming.

Better Together Families will also receive special invitations to Gesher Family programs such as a family tailgate at Kauffman Stadium before a spring Royals game.
