Temple Beth El offers education sessions for adults and religious school for children on weekends that the student rabbi is in town.
Learning is a lifelong journey. No matter your place within the Jewish life cycle, Temple Beth El can help you deepen your Jewish identity and awaken your senses to the beauty of our tradition.
Education is one of the cornerstones of our religion and our adult education program reflects a commitment to lifelong learning. Our adult education classes promote the continuation of Jewish learning and the development of a personal belief system based on Torah and contemporary experiences.
Topics vary from the lessons we learn from Torah to problems and concerns we have as Jews in today’s world. Our adult classes are designed to encourage lively discussion on topics of interest and concern to Jews and our community.

At Temple Beth El, our religious school helps build a positive Jewish identity in every child. We want our children to feel comfortable and proud to say “I am a Jew.”
The Religious school provides instruction in Jewish History, Culture, Customs, Ethics, Tradition, Holidays, Israel, Bible, and the Holocaust. Our instructors teach the children to actively celebrate their Judaism so that it becomes an integral part of their lives. We strive to give our children a true sense of community as they learn about being Jewish and what links us with people of all faiths, races and cultures.
