Our

Programs

B’yachad/Togetherness program

This program is offered to our preschoolers, as a parent and me class. These classes will be full of singing, art and laughter, as we introduce Judaism to our littlest learners. Mrs. Gail will be offering this class on the third Sunday of each month.  

Kinderdergarten - Third Grade

The coming year will be filled with new learning opportunities, J-STEAM activities, and community building projects. We will also be introducing Tefilah/Prayer to this age group to help our students to become more familiar with the structure of Services.  Students will continue to build their connection to Judaism, begin to explore Hebrew, Jewish holidays, Torah and values. In addition to our more formal classes we will also be offering family fun days, including a walk through the forest, a calendar project and our “trip to Israel”. 

Fourth - Sixth Grade

In addition to working with our k-3 students on Sunday, this age group will have the opportunity to dig deeper into their studies on Tuesday afternoons. Focus for this age group will be on building Hebrew proficiency and a more in depth look into the customs of Judaism with the ultimate goal of forging lifelong connects to Judaism.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah

Students who meet eligibility requirements, prepare to become Bar or Bat Mitzvah at age 13 or older. During this year of study they deepen their personal connection to Judaism as  they are tutored one on one by the rabbi and other congregants for the year prior to this life cycle event.

Supper Club  - Seventh - Twelfth Grades

Teens socialize over dinner and then attend classes to explore topics in modular based classes.  Topics include:  the message of the Prophets, Jewish law, the Jewish life cycle, comparative Judaism, the Holocaust, Israel, and Jewish theology. These students also have the opportunity to study Jewish perspectives on modern “hot topics” such as Gender Studies, food choices, body art and modern day Anti-Semitism.

Dessert Club  - College and Beyond 

This program is designed to engage young adults in connecting with Judaism.  We will explore current events with a Jewish twist, and revisit old favorites to find out what they didn't teach us in Hebrew School.  This program is a great way to keep our students connected as they go away to college, or as they join us for the first time coming to our local universities. 

Congregation Beth El is a Reform Jewish Congregation whose purpose is to strive to create a welcoming, spiritually, socially, and geographically diverse community where members can explore and express Jewish religious beliefs and/or their own relationship to God; learn together; seek social, family, and cultural ties; and/or participate in social activism.
