When are our classes?
Our Religious School meets on Sundays at TBE-JC. Kindergarten through Grade 7 classes meet from 9:30am-12:00 noon. We are piloting a HTM (Hebrew Through Movement program) this year! Due to Covid protocols, our art or music classes, usually held every Sunday, are temporarily suspended. We hope and plan to bring these back soon! We have also temporarily suspended our weekly Community Time gatherings (led by Rabbi Moritt and Lisa McNerney).
What is taught?
The curriculum includes Jewish history, holidays, ethics & Jewish values, the Torah, as well as Hebrew reading skills and prayer. Family Education programs are also offered throughout the year. Our Rabbi, Education Director and others are the teachers here at our Religious School.
What is the role of the parent?
Our curriculum offers parents ample avenues for reinforcing what is taught in the classroom. We encourage parents to consistently coach their children with Hebrew basics. We also ask parents’ participation in our Family Education programs and Family Services.
When is registration?
Students normally register over the summer for September, but are welcome to join the program at any time during the year. Contact either Rabbi Moritt or Lisa McNerney of Temple Beth-El in Jersey City at 201-333-4229. They are available to answer any questions or to provide further information.
May we visit your school prior to enrollment?
Yes. Contact Rabbi Moritt or Rosa Escandon to request more information.
