Jewish learning is not only about the child but rather is a whole-family experience. Thus, Congregation Beth Shalom offers meaningful ways for every member of the family to connect with Judaism in every stage of life. Learning is not only about what happens in school but throughout our daily lives. Therefore, what we do in the classroom must matter to us in our homes, as we worship and in all the places we go.
Beth Shalom's Religious School is committed to Jewish learning that is relevant, inspirational and transformative. We provide our students and their families with the tools to participate meaningfully in the Jewish community, with pride in their Jewish heritage and with the awareness that their actions will shape the future of the Jewish people.
Educating the Jewish youth of Congregation Beth Shalom is a journey that begins at the earliest ages. There are wonderful opportunities for our youngest congregants to learn the beauty of Judaism. Rabbi Nancy Wechsler takes an active role in helping to establish a foundation of quality Jewish education that is prevalent throughout the school years for the children at Beth Shalom.
Students in kindergarten through seventh grade experience a wide variety of educational opportunities throughout their school years. Our students enjoy coming to Religious School and being Jewish. Our teachers are chosen because they are good role models and adults who value and cherish their own Jewish identity. Students learn not only facts and tangible subject matter, but also have the chance to explore their values, identities and feelings. One of our chief objectives is to help students learn to celebrate their Jewish identity.
