The Rabin Religious School
The Rabin Religious School provides a progressive Jewish education that includes
history, culture, prayer and Hebrew for all our students. From Kindergarten
through Bar/Bat Mitzvah and Confirmation, classes are offered once a week during
the traditional school year.
During the year, Religious School hosts a Purim Carnival and Hanukah festivities,
and participates regularly in children’s’ services. There is parental participation in
all aspects of the curriculum and activities.
Join us on Sundays to observe or participate or support our religious school students and teachers.
Temple Beth Israel offers a wide variety of adult education opportunities. From weekly Torah study on Thursday mornings to one-time classes on a variety of topics, we seek to engage our congregation and community in lifelong learning. In addition, we offer multi-session courses on topics of a religious or spiritual nature. We also provide courses on Jewish history, culture and philosophy, prayer book and Biblical Hebrew for adults. The rabbi teaches many courses, but lay-leaders or experts from outside the community may teach others.
Adult learning opportunities are available for members and non-members, those who are Jewish and those who are not yet Jewish and those who are just curious.
Tot Shabbat is a Jewish themed family get-together that is geared towards children up to 5 years old. This group is run by some of the tot parents themselves!
A multisensory experience is used to engage all children, through singing, dancing, craft activities, and of course….snacking! Topics explored include Shabbat rituals, weekly Torah portions, and Jewish holidays. Parents and older siblings are encouraged to participate in all activities, supporting the tots, as well as experiencing the Shabbat fun for themselves!
