Religious School

Congregation Beth El creates a positive and interactive learning environment for all children and teens that nurtures and develops Jewish identity and community, and builds a foundation of Jewish ideals based on values, history, and prayerful experiences.

We belong to The Goldring / Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL) that promotes Judaism and our heritage through innovative programs and shared resources. We take part in their education program that consists of a summer conference, the curriculum, and community visits. Click to read more about the ISJL curriculum.

Judaic/Hebrew

Judaic studies at CBE focus on learning stories from the Torah, as well as Jewish identity, symbols, and values learned from our patriarchs and matriarchs. We also focus on the meaning behind our many holidays throughout the year, learning traditions and customs associated with each holiday.

Hebrew at Congregation Beth El focuses on learning traditional prayers and ceremonies. Our learners focus on blessings from the Friday night and Shabbat morning worship services. The study of the Torah Service and the meaning and relationship we have to Torah are another integral part to this curriculum. Every effort is made to individualize instruction.


Mitzvah Projects
Classes learn the Judaic concept of tzedakah and mitzvot. Each class chooses a area/organization of giving. The year will culminate with a final mitzvah project based around the funds collected and actions learned to help these organizations.

Special Jewish Holiday Celebrations
In honor of our Jewish holidays, festive, interactive, and learning activities will take place for our students during religious school hours.

Community Building
Grade level Shabbat services, Havdalah services, Shir Shabbat, and other activities provide opportunities to connect to our Jewish community. ISJL also sends an Education Fellow who visits three times a year for a weekend full of engaging, original programs.
