COMMUNITY LEARNING LAB: Kindergarten - High School

PRE-K – GRADE 7

Building a Jewish Foundation
Our youngest students have class each Sunday morning and learn about Jewish holidays, Torah, and Hebrew through lively story, song, and activities.

Creating Jewish Identity
By second grade and continuing through seventh grade, students attend class two times a week: Sunday and Tuesday. Delving deeper in Judaism, these important years are filled with discussion, activity, and exploration of our faith. Our curriculum includes hands-on learning opportunities, electives and special projects and programs.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah preparation is an integral part of our program. Our clergy and staff works closely with your child to prepare for this milestone. Our special programs, activities, and learning opportunities mark this transition, as we welcome your child as a Jewish adult into our community.


MA’ALOT/GRADES 8-10

Learning Continues
Post-B’nai Mitzvah students are welcomed to attend the Ma’alot program, incorporating a rich array of discussion, outside speakers, activities, and learning specially designed for our young people.


EMET/GRADES 11-12

Project EMET is a two year Jewish leadership training program for 11th and 12th graders. The program focuses on the students’ exploration and development of their own leadership skills, including opportunities to intern and help plan and run programs, projects or events.  Project EMET meets twice a month on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.


SPECIAL NEEDS BINA CLASS

The BINA (Beth Israel’s New Achievers) class has been designed especially for children with special needs. The class meets on Sunday mornings and includes holiday experiences, music, hands-on projects, and more, along with opportunities for inclusion in school-wide programs.

The BINA program is made possible, in part, by a grant from The Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Fund for the Enrichment of Jewish Education, an endowment of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.
