Families @ B’ShERT

Come As You Are

When we say “family” at B’ShERT, we mean it in the most expansive sense. We welcome families of every size, shape and Jewish background to become part of our community, including multigenerational families, interfaith families, families with members outside Brooklyn or NYC, LGBTQAI+ families, and many more.

If your Jewish journey is just beginning or if it is continuing to grow and evolve, we want to be a part of it.

B’ShERT’s Religious School is a welcoming and inclusive program that provides our children with an understanding and love for Judaism and its traditions. Children learn to appreciate the richness of Jewish heritage and to embrace the values of the Jewish faith.

We approach every child as an individual—from personalized Hebrew instruction to enabling them to help conduct Shabbat morning services. Our focus on each child successfully integrates children with special needs.

If you are interested in enrolling your child, fill out our interest form or enroll directly via our online portal.

Questions or comments? Please let us know. You can also reach our educator, Jessie Sander, at educator@bshert.org or via our office.
