Our Vision

Bet Am Shalom...

  • ​is a vibrant, warm, inclusive Jewish community.
  • inspires members of all ages from varied backgrounds to engage in joyful, meaningful Jewish learning and living.
  • provides a Jewish education program for grades K-12.
  • creates learning opportunities through our early childhood, youth, family, and adult programs.

We take advantage of every opportunity and every context available to us to make education an integral part of communal life. Some educational activities take place in classrooms, others in informal settings, within and outside the synagogue facility. Some activities are led by trained educators and others are led by congregants of all ages. In addition to traditional classroom learning, we incorporate the following modes into our educational programs:

  • Family learning
  • Mentoring
  • Experiential learning
  • Home learning
  • Service learning

The key topics addressed in our programs include:

  • Tefilah (prayer)
  • Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) – ancient and contemporary
  • Shabbat and Chagim (holidays)
  • Tikkun Olam (literally "Repairing the World" - the Jewish responsibility to make the world a better place)
  • Sense of Peoplehood – historical and contemporary
