Hebrew School

At Beth Jacob Hebrew School, we aspire for our students to emerge as lifelong learners with the connectedness, knowledge and skills necessary to participate actively and meaningfully in a Jewish life.

  • Identify as a member of k’lal Yisrael (the world Jewish community)
  • Live ethical Jewish lives.
  • Perform acts of Tikkun Olam (“repairing the world”)
  • Participate actively and with understanding in prayer services
  • Be familiar with both written and spoken Hebrew.
  • Perform mitzvot 
  • Demonstrate a connection to and love for the State of Israel
  • Understand Jewish history


Our program provides a rejuvenated and highly experiential approach to Jewish education. In class, our dynamic staff works with a progressive curriculum to give your children an interactive, stimulating, relevant and FUN Jewish education. Our teachers have the flexibility to scale the program to the needs of their students, and our small class sizes promote a sense of closeness and enable our staff to give the students considerable one-on-one attention.


Beth Jacob Synagogue is a joyful and caring home where young families can embrace their Jewish identity and explore the importance of Jewish values, learning, and community. Our education program is thoroughly integrated with the life of the entire congregation, and adult community members are partners in learning with our children.
