Our school program for children in preschool through sixth grade aims to deepen their Jewish experience and knowledge in order to strengthen identification with the Jewish people, love of Torah and connection to spirituality. Through experiential programming and classroom learning, we build meaningful involvement among families in our synagogue. Together with parents in BEFC, Beth Emet Families Connect, we create positive Jewish experiences that focus on building relationships.
We strongly believe that Judaism contains answers to the challenges and questions confronting our children today. By learning about Jewish beliefs and values, exploring our traditions and history, and confronting current world issues, children can discover answers for themselves and develop meaningful, rewarding lives that will continually renew, inspire and transform themselves and their community.
This year we are active virtually in our classes on Sunday mornings and Thursday afternoons. Our students are moving forward in their grade level curriclula, engaging in art projects and scavenger hunts, cooking and creating. Groupings are small to create greater connections between students and teachers, and family celebration times are interspersed. Our faculty participates in professional development not only to learn how to teach online, but more importantly, to learn how to use technology to enhance our teaching and learning this year!
