Grades K-12 Jewish Education Program

Torah La'am, the name of our K-12 Jewish education program, means "Torah for the People." 
We create personally meaningful, joyful ways for the whole family to experience Jewish living.

Our teachers focus on building communities in which students live Jewish values while learning.  They experience listening to and valuing a variety of perspectives, learning from everyone in the room, and helping each other grow.  Our teaching staff is always learning progressive ways to engage students, and we collaborate on ways to meet individual students' needs. Our program includes family and inter-generational activities, parenting workshops, music, youth band, art, cooking, hands-on projects, and social action programs.

Education is a central element of communal life at Bet Am Shalom. Adults and children are encouraged to continually learn and teach. As a Reconstructionist congregation, our goal is to impart a love of our "Religious Civilization" in all its manifestations - Torah, history, language, culture, holidays and festivals, and, of course, values. We also aim to teach the skills and concepts necessary to participate fully in Jewish life. Our families recognize the importance of modeling Jewish living as a vital component of teaching our children.
