Hebrew School

Hebrew School Model SederThe Hebrew School strives to create a rich, vibrant learning environment in which we can nourish our children’s growing Jewish identities, create a community of peers that is part of the larger community at BJ and the global Jewish community, and build the skills that children will need to be participatory members of their community.

The Hebrew School is a place where our children can learn new skills and ideas, struggle with questions of theology, meaning, and connection at an age-appropriate level, and test what they have learned through prayer, discussion, and interaction with BJ’s spiritual leaders and staff.

Please see our Vision Statement, and download copies of our Family Handbook and calendar for the year.
