Beit Bina Youth Education

WELCOME TO BEIT BINA, 2021-2022

The entire staff at our Beit Bina Hebrew and Religious Studies School of Temple Israel extends our prayers that all our parents and students are feeling well and staying safe.

As Director of Education and the eternal optimist, I have taken this opportunity to completely jump head first into the extended world of Jewish Education, 2021. I found so much to learn, so much new and exciting platforms of teaching Hebrew, Jewish values, Holidays, Holy Days, Festivals, Major and Minor Jewish observances, music, Prayer, dance and of course cooking.

We are ready for an exciting year. Our school is now a proud member of Shalom Learning: The state of the art of Jewish Education for online use as well as in the classroom.

But there is more! We are prepared to integrate this wonderful platform into our traditional approach towards reaching our students as the individuals they are. We will continue to bring joy, happiness, kindness and love into our method of teaching using Shalom Learning as a new tool to partner with. Please feel free to visit Shalom Learning @ ShalomLearning.org

As our full staff of Teachers and Madrichim is excited to have you join us, we invite you all to register now so we can prepare for the future.

Please enroll here:  Beit Bina Enrollment 5782

We will be teaching online for now and until January 2021. We will be reevaluating our year as time passes with input from our Parents and Education Committee.

  • Our first Sunday session for PreK-7th grade is scheduled to begin Sunday, September 19 at Temple Israel. We are planning on having outdoor programming for now at 9:30 am for students and parents.
  • Our first Thursday Hebrew session for grades 3-7thgrade will begin Thursday, September 23rd at 4pm. 

As Always, With Lots & Lots of Love and Blessings,

Cantor Brian Reich, Director of Education

Welcome to Beit Bina, our religious school at Temple Israel, where we are planting the seeds of the Jewish experience for the next generation.

Beit means house and Bina means understanding or wisdom in Hebrew.

Ours truly is a house of understanding and wisdom.

Our congregation welcomes any family; our school welcomes any child who desires Jewish values, traditions and language as part of their life.

We want all parents to know that it’s never too late for your child to begin their Religious/Hebrew school journey with us. We offer programs for children from pre-K through sixth grade on Thursdays and Sundays.

THURSDAY

On Thursday, from 4pm to 5:30pm, students in grades 3 thru 7 receive an age-appropriate Hebrew education. Director Cantor Brian Reich, along with the Beit Bina staff, have coordinated and selected the most current Hebrew curriculum and use of technology to both educate our students and engage them with joy in learning Hebrew.

SUNDAY

On Sunday, from 9:30am to 12pm, the program for children in pre-K thru 6th grade, is dedicated to Jewish cultural studies with a focus on the Holy Days, Holidays, Festivals and Observances through arts and crafts, storytelling, puppetry, dance and of course music. There is a short Hebrew component, too.

OUR APPROACH TO HEBREW

Our teachers are highly-trained to effectively communicate with joy while teaching the Hebrew language. In addition to our class approach, we are built to offer to those students in need one-on-one tutoring. We have individual tutoring for new students and the Director of Education is a Cantor. That means lots of wonderful fun music, music and more music. Come learn and sing with us.
