Religious School

The Congregation Beth Israel Religious School is designed to help our students feel a connection to and affection for Jewish life and tradition. 

We provide supplemental, innovative and project-based learning opportunities for students in grades PreK-7, intended to develop their spiritual core and strengthen their Jewish identity. 

Our Religious School is open to non-member families for children younger than 3rd grade.  To enroll a child in 3rd grade or above requires a Family Membership.

Curriculum and Meaningful Moments

Here at CBI, each grade explores the following six curricular content areas over the course of the year:

  • Ivrit - Hebrew
  • Bein Adam l’Chavero -­ Jewish Values
  • Bein Adam l’Makom -­ Jewish Rituals
  • Talmud Torah -­ Jewish Texts
  • Tefillah -­ Jewish Prayer
  • Ahavat Yisrael -­ The Love of Israel

We have established different themes and specific benchmarks in each of these content areas, and they will be studied by each grade in a developmentally appropriate way, using textbooks as guides and resources.

For our students in Kitah Gimmel through Kitah Zayin, there are "meaningful moments" woven into the curriculum:  field trips, projects and special events, designed to make the content of our learning come alive.
