Religious School

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.
Shabbat morning classes focus on community-building and Jewish learning in a lively, interactive setting. The curriculum is expeditionary-style on a three-year cycle.

Religious School Schedule

  • Saturday Mornings: All students through Brit Mitzvah attend class on Saturday mornings, including Shabbat services.
  • Mid-Week Hebrew: Students 8 years + up have midweek Hebrew instruction, usually delivered via distance learning on Zoom. Hebrew instruction is delivered chevrutah-style, with pairs of learners working intensively with the instructor. Direct instruction is supplemented with online games, quizzes and worksheets.
  • Weekday Evening Confirmation: Post brit mitzvah students follow a two-year curriculum of study directly with Rabbi Hoover
  • Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation includes direct instruction with Rabbi Hoover, scheduled privately with each student.

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.
