What is Shalshelet? Shalshelet means chain, and it connects you, The Epstein School of Jewish Studies, and the Syracuse Community Hebrew School or one of our community’s three Sunday schools.
How do I get involved? You attend The Epstein School (1-2 hours/week) and volunteer or work as a madrich/madricha (teacher’s aide) 2-5 hours/week at SCHS or in one of our religious schools.
Why get involved? You learn more about Judaism at Epstein, and you help others learn more about Judaism in one of the schools. As you participate in Shalshelet, your stipend increases: • $72 for the first year • $144 for the 2nd year • $216 for the 3rd year and beyond • If you work/volunteer at a Religious School AND SCHS, you will likely receive more.
