We believe in teaching methodology that encourage students to grapple with their own beliefs and values. Our teaching includes a naturalist-humanist approach to all aspects of Jewish civilization combined with a deep respect for diversity of belief and practice among our students and their parents.
Each student and parent is encouraged to deepen and expand their Jewish knowledge in a way that is rich and meaningful. A comprehensive program of Family Education offers both parallel study and joint activities to help families explore together the teachings and practice of Judaism.
The school strives to blend the academic study of Jewish civilization with a comprehensive experiential program. To this end, we have planned Shabbat services that are family and community oriented, holiday celebrations and special events that invite participation - for all ages. We hope to instill in our students a love and pride in their Jewishness.
Ever wonder what kids think about going to Hebrew School? We asked some students at Beth Israel's Hebrew School what they thought about it, and why they thought it was important. Watch our video (or click here), and see for yourself the fun and enriching experience!
Hebrew School enrollment for classes beyond Mechina (our preschool class, which is open to the public) and Gan (Kindergarten) is available for members. Click here for more information on becoming a member. We look forward to welcoming you!
