Welcome to Beit Bina, our religious school at Temple Israel, where we are planting the seeds of the Jewish experience for the next generation.

‘Beit’ means house and ‘Bina’ means understanding or wisdom in Hebrew.

Ours truly is a house of understanding and wisdom.

Our congregation welcomes any family; our school welcomes any child who desires Jewish values, traditions and language as part of their life.

We want all parents to know that it’s never too late for your child to begin their Religious/Hebrew school journey with us. We offer programs for children from pre-K through sixth grade on Thursdays and Sundays.

THURSDAY

On Thursday, from 4pm to 5:30pm, students in grades 3 thru 7 receive an age-appropriate Hebrew education. Director Cantor Brian Reich, along with the Beit Bina staff, have coordinated and selected the most current Hebrew curriculum and use of technology to both educate our students and engage them with joy in learning Hebrew.

SUNDAY

On Sunday, from 9:30am to 12pm, the program for children in pre-K thru 6th grade, is dedicated to Jewish cultural studies with a focus on the Holy Days, Holidays, Festivals and Observances through arts and crafts, storytelling, puppetry, dance and of course music. There is a short Hebrew component, too.

OUR APPROACH TO HEBREW

Our teachers are highly-trained to effectively communicate with joy while teaching the Hebrew language. In addition to our class approach, we are built to offer to those students in need one-on-one tutoring. We have individual tutoring for new students and the Director of Education is a Cantor. That means lots of wonderful fun music, music and more music. Come learn and sing with us this year.
