It is the Mission of Congregation Beth Israel's Religious School to educate Jewish students in a nurturing community that models, develops and inspires life-long commitment to Jewish values and the practice of mitzvot.
It is our goal to firmly ground each student in the knowledge and understanding of Jewish culture, heritage, history and liturgical Hebrew. We hope each student will affirm their Jewish identity, participate in tikkun olam (repairing our world), engage in prayer, and search for God while contributing to the Jewish people, the life of Israel, their synagogue, community and home.
Every student at Beth Israel Religious School will have the opportunity to participate in authentic educational activities. These activities combine cognitive and experiential components in an environment that is supportive of these efforts.
Our school environment provides a safe place to ask important questions and to act Jewishly. The program is designed to create a Jewish social environment that will encourage and build interpersonal relationships and contribute to a positive sense of belonging.
