Who we are.

We are an inclusive school community of Jewish families raising their children in a home committed to Jewish practice. Through partnerships with our families, we instill a strong sense of Jewish values and unshakeable Jewish identities.

What we believe.

Jewish learning may begin in the classroom, but Jewish identity flourishes at home. We believe students come to know Judaism in religious school and experience Judaism in their synagogue community, but they live Judaism at home. Students regularly gather with our broader Beth El community, which helps families familiarize themselves with the rhythms of the Jewish year and grow together Jewishly.

What we do.

We create a positive environment for our students to connect with Judaism on their terms and cultivate formative, hands-on experiences that help families live an active Jewish life at home, at Beth El, and everywhere in between.
