Who is wise? He who learns from all people. As it is said, 'From all my teachers, I have gotten understanding.'(Avot 4:1) - Rabbi Ben Zoma
Beth El's education programs provide opportunities to study and learn at all times during one's life. Whether you seek to learn new skills, share your own experiences or build a new foundation upon which to grow and learn, you can find classes and activities here at Beth El. Come, learn with us!
Our goal is to open the windows of Judaism and instill in our children that reform Judaism is exciting, relevant and important to the world. Visit the Religious School page for more information.
For parents of young children, we have a special program for non-members who wish to introduce their pre-K through second grade children to our religious school experience.
Beth El's clergy, staff, and knowledgeable lay leaders provide a wide variety of opportunities to meet your desire for life-long learning.
All course offerings, Shabbat afternoon seminars and scholar-in-residence programs are open to members and non-members alike, including religious school students who have completed the B'nai Mitzvah program.
