A New Approach to Jewish Education
Beth Israel Cohen Family Religious School

  • Family “Kehillah Corner” time every Sunday from 9:45 – 10:00 to discuss a question of the week and collect tzedakah.

  • Option of attendance on Sunday only or our “One Plus” program – Sunday and Wednesday, for 3rd – 5th graders

  • Focus on providing students with key Jewish values they can use to guide their lives in decision-making

  • Student-led community service for all 3rd – 7th grade students from 11:00 – 11:15 every Sunday

  • Themed units of study on Sundays based on Jewish holidays – exploring the history, rituals, Hebrew, text, food, ethics, & crafts of each holiday

  • New Hebrew program utilizing a multimedia curriculum (arts, music, interactive online components) to connect students with prayers

  • Conversational Hebrew on Wednesday One Plus day for 6th/7th graders

  • Torah Sparks (weekly Torah portion exploration through arts, music, plays) for 3rd- 5th graders on Wednesday One Plus day

  • Introduction of Chugim (clubs) on Wednesdays, relying heavily on integration of arts, music, movement, role playing, and cooking to learn about our connection with fellow Jews around the world, S.T.E.A.M. (contributions of Jews in fields of science, technology, entertainment, arts, and mathematics), and Israel.

  • Flexibility in programming to meet your family’s needs

We look forward to an exciting new school year… Join us as we think outside the box to provide your children with a Jewish education that will guide them throughout their lives!
