Learning

Lifelong learning is an essential Jewish value, and Beth Am has educational opportunities for every age, from babies through adulthood. Clergy, educators, staff, Beth Am members and invited scholars from around the world teach, inspire and challenge us. Learning happens in nature, in homes, at top-quality lectures and presentations, over lunch, through the arts and in classrooms with our dedicated teachers.

Youth Education programs are innovative and always adapting to new ideas. We are proud to be part of Re-Imagine, a national project of the Experiment in Congregational Education that is helping us phase out religious school as we’ve known it and move Jewish education out of the classroom. In 2013 we launched Camp Beth Am, a popular program for 5th - 8th grade students. This year we are proud to introduce the family education program Shabbat Together, opening in the fall for families whose oldest child is entering kindergarten. We are also very pleased to host the JCC Preschool at Beth Am, which is a satellite site of the Preschool at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center.
 
Beth Am members are learners for life! Study over lunch and over bagels. Study in pairs, groups and small classes. Study on walks, runs or hikes -- come and learn!
