RELIGIOUS SCHOOL

At Congregation Beth Judea we are dedicated to life-long learning. ​We want each and every child to view Beth Judea as a second Jewish home. We strive to create a caring and nurturing environment. Every space in filled with children learning, singing, praying, and growing together as a community. Our outstanding teachers help bring Judaism to life for our students.
 
We view Jewish education as a partnership between the children, the Religious School and you.  We will work to develop a strong identification with Judaism, pride in our heritage and a love for all humanity. Our learning never ceases and there is always more to what we think we've already mastered.
 
5781 SCHOOL UPDATE:
In designing this year's school learning plan, we strive to create an environment, whether in-person or online, that fosters learning and continues to build on community while prioritizing the safety of our teachers and students. Our theme for the year is KOL YISRAEL AREVYIM ZEH BA’ZEH; All of Israel is Responsible for One Another. During this unprecedented time, we have an even greater responsibility put on us. We, as a collective group, must protect one another, be responsible in our decision-making processes, compassionate and kind to the most vulnerable amongst us, and we must work together to create a Kehillah Kedosha – a holy community that supports and looks after one another. Below is an outline of the school plan.
  • We are preparing 2 plans for the coming year – one is completely remote and the other is a hybrid with in-person learning opportunities. If we are able to switch between the two plans, we want student learning to be seamless.
  • After consulting with CBJ’s Task Force and the Education Committee, we plan to begin the school year remotely through the High Holidays, after which we will assess and determine next steps for the remainder of the school year. This decision was made for the following reasons: 
    1. Pikuach Nefesh, saving a life, is our primary concern. We do not want to unnecessarily put our students and our staff at risk.
    2. While we are implementing this online model, we still leave open the possibility of some small in-person scheduled meeting time for special events.
Even as we are opening online, we are still preparing the building and the staff to safely welcome students in person when it is decided we can move to the hybrid model. This decision will be made in consultation with the Education Committee, CBJ Task Force, the teachers, and YOU (the parents). There is NO timeline for this, as we will be evaluating how the public schools are handling their openings, how safety procedures are being executed, and how our local area is doing with the virus in general.
