Beth Israel Preschool is now accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education!


Program accreditation implies that services must move beyond mere licensing and regulatory requirements. Program accreditation standards represent the highest quality and reflect research-based, best practices in early childhood education and school age child care. This should give confidence and pride in the decision all of  our families have made to be a part of the Beth Israel Preschool community. A huge Yasher Koach to the preschool teachers for this magnificent accomplishment. 


Welcome to Beth Israel Congregation. We have a place for you—and a place for your family. Come, be a part of our community. Grow spiritually. Nourish your soul. Learn and share with us. Experience our sacred balance of Jewish tradition and innovation.  All are welcome. 

Beth Israel is a place to come home to, again and again.
