Congregation Beth Elohim Religious School

Family Education

Our educational program is committed not only to an excellent religious school for our children, but to providing quality educational opportunities for families to grow together in their Jewish experience. Thus, our Family Education program continues to encourage families to participate not only in grade based family education programs, but also in activities and programs open to the entire family all year!

Class Shabbat Services

Each class leads a Shabbat service or program during the year.   In Kindergarten and first grade students lead their families in a Shabbat dinner followed by a few prayers.  Our second grade class leads their families in a Havdalah service.  In third through 5th grade students conduct parts of the service by sharing their knowledge of prayers and melodies as well as their creative interpretations of prayers, Torah portions or special themes.  In sixth grade students lead the congregation in a Saturday morning service including reading a line of Torah, giving part of a d’var Torah and leading prayers.  Lastly, our teens lead us in a teen service and the Confirmation class (10th grade) leads the congregation in a Friday night Confirmation Service. 

When possible, each Shabbat experience includes a Shabbat meal.  The class Shabbat provides an opportunity to bring together the families of each grade as a community to relax and enjoy the spirit of Shabbat.
