The Beth-El Religious School is an engaging, dynamic part of our warm, caring, people-oriented and accepting congregation. Led by a fantastic team of professionals, our school strives for a small student-to-teacher ratio, differentiated learning, and many extra-curricular activities, designed to prepare our children to be Jewish adults filled with a love and pride of being Jewish, and to strengthen and inform the role they play in the broader community.
Students learn the history, values and language of the Jewish people while building a strong Jewish community within the school. Religious school meets on Sunday mornings from 9:30am – 12noon. Each week, all grades participate together for Community Time with Rabbi Moritt and Morah Marian, and each grade has either art or music every Sunday.
Our religious school’s Family Education program is designed to support and enhance each family’s Jewish knowledge and practice as well as build community among our families. Parents join their children for Sunday morning religious school several times each year to enjoy a special program led by teachers and clergy.
Our First Friday Shabbat celebrations feature a pot luck family dinner at 6.30, followed by family services at 7:30pm provide a warm and welcoming way for our Religious School families to celebrate Shabbat and build community.
