Religious School: Beit Sefer

Parents of Beth Ami have organized a new religious school, or Beit Sefer. 

If you are interested in tutors, either in general or for child or adult Bar Mitzvah, please contact the Beth Ami office; we are proud of our recent Bnei Mitzvah who have been tutored by our members and have inspired the congregation.

Beit Sefer plans and goals

We are excited to rebuild our Beit Sefer and Jewish Education program for our community. Over the past few weeks, we have been meeting to identify our goals, and establish an outline of our curriculum, timeline and activities for the coming year.

Here are our most current ideas, with the hopes that you will want to participate.

Our goal is to create a program that becomes a welcoming, interactive community that will elevate our children’s Jewish learning and strengthen their Jewish identity.

Our Beit Sefer program will formally begin after the High Holidays.

What will Beit Sefer include?

Our goal for the program includes integrating Jewish learning with Tzedakah/Tikkun Olam and community family gatherings. A typical month would include a different activity each week.

* Bi-weekly Shabbat morning Bet Sefer group sessions from 10am-11:30am at Beth Ami
* A monthly Friday night family Shabbat dinner
* A family oriented Tzedakah project on a Sunday
There is an optional weekly Alef-Bet and prayer learning session in small groups.

*Information on the Alef-Bet and Prayer Learning option*
There is the possibility of an additional class that would be either in person or on-line and would focus on alef-bet and prayer learning during the week. If you are interested in participating in this option, please let us know what days work best for you, and if you prefer in-person or virtual.

We are all very excited to get started and hope to see you at Beth Ami.
