Additional Programs

In addition to classroom instruction, Temple Beth-El provides a wide array of programs through weekend retreats, family partnerships and a variety of holiday celebrations and special events to round out the educational experience.

Here are just a few examples of such programs:

Shabbat Yeladim

Yeladim means children. This is our Tot Service for ages 7 and under (older siblings at welcome). The evening begins at 5:30 PM with complimentary dinner followed by a 6:00 PM age-appropriate service filled with singing, story and basic prayers. Evening concludes with a craft and oneg so families can enjoy each other and be home in time for bedtime. This program typically is held the first Friday of the month, but please check our calendar.

Ruach Shabbat

Ruach means spirit. This is a spirited service! Monthly family friendly Friday night services. Religious School grades are assigned one service a year and those children are featured that month.

  • Yearly grade level family education programs (Family Learning Days) allow parents and children the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning highlighting one aspect of the curriculum
  • Family High Holiday Services and family celebrations on Sukkot, Simchat Torah, and Purim.
  • Yearly inter-generational retreat at OSRUI, the regional Reform movement camp

Children’s Library

The Children’s Library is a wonderful place for children to find Jewish books and materials. Children are encouraged to borrow books for up to a two-week period. The library is open during school, and when the building is open. Please return books by the end of each school year. 

Partnership with Keshet

We are proud to partner with Keshet to provide a Sunday School inclusive of children with disabilities. Volunteer madrichim provide one-on-one learning and behavioral support individually tailored to the needs of each student. Families do not need to be congregation members for children to attend. For more information, call our Temple Educator.

School Special Events

Some of the special life-cycle moments we celebrate as a school community are: Consecration when new students are welcomed to Jewish learning and Confirmation in high school.
