Education

At Beth Chaverim, our goal is to offer our students the experiences, the knowledge and the tools to develop a positive Jewish identity. Our curriculum teaches a basic familiarity with and understanding of Torah, Jewish life cycle events, Jewish holidays and rituals, Jewish heritage and history, Jewish values and the Hebrew language. We strive for our students’ Jewish literacy in these key areas. 

We partner with the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL), which supplies us with a spiraling curriculum for each grade level in ten key content areas: Community, Culture and Symbols, God, Hebrew and Prayer, Israel, Jewish History, Jewish Holidays, Jewish Lifecycle Events, Mitzvot and Jewish Values, and TaNaKh (Torah, Prophets, and Writings). The curriculum is a living process in that during the year lesson plans can be revised, rewritten, or newly written by ISJL staff to fit our needs.  Each year the ISJL staff reviews and updates the curriculum to keep it fresh.

All of our classes meet on Sunday mornings.

Consider joining our dedicated team of teachers! It's a great way to give back to your community. Teachers paying full dues rate are eligible for a dues credit of $15 per hour of classes taught
