Congregation Beth Chaim's Religious School provides Jewish education to over 600 youngsters. Our programs include a bi-monthly class for 3 and 4 year old children and parents as well as weekly classes beginning in Kindergarten and continuing through Confirmation (at the end of 10th grade). Anne Berman-Waldorf is our Director of Lifelong Education. Laura Schwartz is the Vice President for Education & Youth. Robin Valentine is the Chairperson of the Lifelong Education Committee.
Students in the Beth Chaim Religious School learn about a variety of Jewish subjects including Reform Jewish practice, Jewish history, holidays and festivals, Hebrew, Shabbat, Israel, life cycle events, prayers, Bible, Torah, Holocaust and other timely issues in modern Jewish life.
8th and 9th Grade students participate in a discussion oriented class facilitated by Cantor Stuart Binder, Rabbi Cari Bricklin (Assistant Rabbi), Edye Fineman (Youth Advisor), Rabbi Carolyn Bricklin, Assistant Rabbi and Anne Berman-Waldorf, Director of Lifelong Education. The program includes guest speakers and each class begins with dinner. The Confirmation class, for our 10th grade students is taught by Rabbi Eric Wisnia
The Religious School is proud to offer an award-winning special education program. This ungraded class is designed to offer a quality Jewish education to all students, regardless of learning style.
Religious School classes are held on Sunday mornings (Pre-K through 6th grade students); Monday nights (7th - 10th grades) and Wednesday afternoons (4th - 6th grade students). 11th and 12th grade students participate in a special program with Rabbi Eric Wisnia and students from other local Reform congregations.
