"Find yourself a teacher and make a friend!" ~ Mishnah, Avot 1:6
We believe in lifelong Jewish education – from cradle to grave – for the entire family. Our religious school programs together with our informal and family offerings for young families enable children the opportunity to experience Judaism first through their senses and later through their minds and hearts. We do not subscribe to “drive-through” Jewish education; meaning, we take our responsibility to provide holistic and family-based learning seriously. Jewish education at Congregation B’nai Torah is very personal, and our low student to teacher ratio allows for instruction to be both differentiated and individualized to accommodate a variety of different student learning styles. We believe that Jewish education should inspire close relationships between teachers and students, and that each child’s emergent Jewish identity is built on self-discovery within a communal context.
