The Temple Beth Am Religious School nurtures and perpetuates Judaism and the Jewish community by creating a dynamic environment that provides opportunities for our members to learn about God, Torah and Israel (the land and world Jewry). It is our goal to enable students and their families to adopt an integrated approach to being Jewish and make a lifetime commitment to the celebration of Judaism.
Temple Beth Am Religious School was established 55 years ago, coinciding with the formation of the Temple Beth Am congregation in 1955. The school provides quality education for its youngest students in kindergarten to its seniors in 12th grade. Our program has taught and inspired thousands of young people over the years. Many of the school’s alumni are actively involved in today’s Jewish world, whether professionally or as volunteer leaders.
Accredited by the National Association of Temple Educators, Temple Beth Am Religious School enjoys a reputation as a school of distinction. Family education programs, mitzvah field trips, Judaic arts enrichment, Hebrew language skills, Bar and Bat Mitzvah training, and a Shabbat morning “family school” highlight the hands-on curriculum facilitated by talented and dedicated teachers and clergy.
Temple Beth Am Religious School is one of the few schools nationwide that earns unparalleled support from its parents’ organizations, PSTARS. With their help, each year we bring in acclaimed artists and teachers who teach and motivate our students, families and congregation.
