The Lee and Frank Goldberg Family Religious School provides a complete Jewish education in a warm, nurturing environment that models, develops and inspires life-long commitment to Jewish values and the practice of mitzvot.
Our curriculum is grounded in Jewish culture, heritage, history and liturgical Hebrew Study of Torah and worship. Our school is a safe place for children to ask important questions, to explore Jewish values, and to act Jewishly. Students build interpersonal relationships and a positive sense of belonging through activities both on and off campus. And, of course, we offer a complete B’nai Mitzvah program.

Students become teenage leaders and role models, learning to be co-teachers, tutors, and camp junior counselors through the High School’s Madrichim Program. In the process, teens learn valuable life skills which will help them be more effective leaders or participants in any group. After completion of the Madrichim class, students are eligible to become assistant teachers in the classroom and junior counselors at our weekend camps.
Helene Schlafman, known affectionately as Eemah (mom), started the Madrichim program more than 35 years ago. It began when she was pregnant with her son and her students began to call her Eemah. Through the years the name and the Madrichim program have both endured. Helene is Director of Education Emerita at Beth Israel, is currently teaching in our Religious School and High School. The Madrichim program continues to be one of the most popular classes in the High School.
