Upcoming School Events & Youth Programming

06.03.2018 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Classroom Learning
Adolescent years are a critical time for our students to engage in meaningful Jewish learning as they explore their own religious identities and decide how Judaism fits into their increasingly busy lives. Students will learn what it means to be a part of the Reform Jewish community and will explore our sacred texts at a deeper level. Through track courses they will also learn about Israel from a historical perspective, Israel through a human behavior perspective, and will participate in tikkun olam (repairing the world) or Hebrew skill strengthening. The organizations and curricula we draw on include Facing History and Ourselves, the I-Center for Israel Education, Makom, Hebrew Union College, and much more. Students continue their Hebrew studies throughout 6th and 7th grade in preparation for their bar/bat mitzvah.

Community Learning
B’yachad students are expected to attend and participate in Family T’filah on Sunday mornings at 11:00am. There they learn the skills of becoming a shaliach tzibur (prayer leader) in our community by leading younger classmates in prayer. B’yachad students can be members of Jr. TABSY, our junior Temple youth group, and are invited to local and regional events. They also participate in Greene Family Camp Year Round programming. Temple Beth Shalom recognizes that many B’yachad students are also in the midst of their B’nai Mitzvah journey and our educators are constantly exploring ways to integrate the skills they are developing into all aspects of their Jewish lives.
