Religious School

The Temple Beth Am Religious School is committed to bringing the love of Judaism to children, in an engaging way. We are blessed to have such a talented staff that uses imaginative and innovative methods to educate and inspire our students.

Our Religious School program is designed for students in grades K-12. Our curriculum focuses on Jewish Holidays, Hebrew, Jewish Rituals, Torah, Mitzvot, Israel, and Jewish values. We use the Chai Curriculum in Grades 2-6 as well as the Mitkadem, Prayer Book-based Hebrew curriculum. Grade 7 focuses on Jewish values and B’nai Mitzvah Prep.

Family Engagement:

Family Engagement plays an important role at Temple Beth Am. We believe in parents being partners in their child’s Jewish education. Each grade participates in family education during the academic year. The programs center around topics they are learning in class as well as topics that are relevant for families.


This year we are happy to introduce our parent Engagement event projects! We have four dates and projects selected so we can all come together and connect to build relationships and connections while supporting Temple Beth AM and our students
