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:
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.
You may be asking…
A large class, great programs for the entire family, and a credit to cover most of tuition? Amazing! How do I enroll?
It’s simple. Just complete the online enrollment form here, note that you are participating in Better Together where indicated, and the credit will be applied.
We are Beth Shalom members with a child in kindergarten or first grade, and our student attends HBHA—how do we participate?
Please email Trinity Lawson (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we will make sure that you receive all the information about upcoming Better Together programs, as well as the same $400 credit toward your student’s HBHA education from Beth Shalom.
Okay! We’re in! When do we get started?
So glad you asked—and we’re so excited to get together. We will kick things off on Sunday, August 29, at Gezer Park, with a program that’s part orientation, part ice-cream party!

Hazzan Ben-Yehuda and teachers will provide an overview of Better Together, as well as an orientation to the Polsky School for K/1 families. And yes, there will be an ice-cream truck!

Future Better Together Programs include:
Better Together Families will also receive special invitations to Gesher Family programs such as “Maccabee Madness with Rick Recht” in December and a family tailgate at Kauffman Stadium before a spring Royals game.
