When and where does Shelanu meet?

Shelanu meets on Sunday evenings during the school year from 5:30-7:10pm. There is a free, optional dinner from 5-5:30 each week. The first bell is 5:30-6:15 PM. The second bell is 6:25–7:10 PM. First semester will meet at Wise Temple while second semester will meet at the Adath Israel. 

How do I register and pay for Shelanu?

Registration takes place online before each semester. Students must register by the deadline given for each semester and will find out their electives on the first day of the semester. An email with detailed registration instructions will be sent out at the beginning of semester. Tuitions costs $400 for the year. Families are billed directly by their home congregation. Tuition for Shelanu will show up on your dues statement.

What if my child needs to leave early?

If your child needs to leave early, Nina Loftspring, Shelanu Director must receive communication from the parent or guardian. Nina can be reached at Director@ShelanuCincy.org. Before leaving the student will need to let the director know their ride has arrived. This policy is in place for the safety of our students. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Inclement Weather

In the event of inclement weather, a email alert will be sent out. In addition, the Shelanu website will be updated with closing information, emails to the parents will be sent out and local news networks will be notified of the closure.


Each spring Shelanu hosts a graduation ceremony, or siyyum. Seniors and their families are encouraged to attend. More details will be made available as the date gets closer.
