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 core curriculum is challenging and multi-dimensional, and is delivered in exciting and age-appropriate modes. In addition to regular in-class learning, our program includes numerous family and inter-generational activities, music, art, and social action programs. Our program is participatory, inclusive and egalitarian. 

Some key elements of our school format are:

  • Integration of outside-the-classroom activities into the curriculum in order to "live our Judaism" and build a stronger community;
  • Numerous opportunities for family and inter-generational learning;
  • A revitalized core curriculum, especially in Hebrew;
  • A commitment to excellent teaching and continuous professional development by the faculty.
