BRIT KAVOD (HONOR COVENANT) AND RELEASE FORM

A brit ("breet") is a covenant. We ask Shoresh parents to read through this section and enter into a brit, a covenant, with their child(ren), with other families, and with our Shoresh community to bring kavod (respect) and shalom (peace) to Shoresh each week. 

AS A LEARNER, I agree that I will: 
  • Remember that Shoresh and KAM Isaiah Israel is a place of worship and learning.
  • Be respectful of our building and everything in and around it. Therefore I will not litter, deface, or damage anything.
  • Be respectful of everyone in our community: 
    • I will respect my peers by paying attention when others are speaking, using kind language and manners, keeping my hands and body to myself, not using anything that does not belong to me, not putting down others, and listening to others’ opinions.
    • I will respect my teachers by following the class expectations, listening while the teacher is talking, and doing what is asked of me at Shoresh.
  • Be respectful of myself by always being safety conscious. I will not run, climb, play wildly, or throw anything (except as appropriate in designated areas).
  • I will not treat others in ways in which I do not want to be treated. 
AS PARENT(S), I/we will: 
  • Share responsibility for our child as a learner who is learning how to become a part of the Jewish people, by approaching our child’s exploration of our heritage and trying to make meaning of it as a family endeavor and responsibility. 
  • Share responsibility for the other learners and the teachers sharing in our learning experience by helping our child to be prepared for class, arriving on time, participating in Shoresh activities, and reinforcing Jewish values at home. We will share with Shoresh the responsibility of monitoring our child’s progress. 
AS A SCHOOL, we will: 
  • Strive to treat every child with respect, compassion, and active interest 
  • Do our best to teach Jewish values, tradition, and knowledge 
  • Incorporate all learning styles and abilities whenever possible 
  • Reinforce the terms laid out in the inclusion policy 
We have read the Brit Kavod/honor covenant and discussed it with our family. We understand that by attending Shoresh we are agreeing to the terms of the Brit Kavod/honor covenant.
By typing your name, you agree to enter in to this brit ("breet"), this covenant, with Shoresh during the 2019-20 school year.
