Youth and families involved in education programs at Beth Am experience what it means to live in a kehillah kedoshah, a sacred community. Children, parents and family members who engage in our programs develop confidence in their ability to live a meaningful, informed, authentic Reform Jewish life and pass this heritage on to the next generation.Read more
We believe that every family in our community is on a Jewish journey, and adults and children who engage in our programs have meaningful experiences that move that journey forward. Jewish learning at Beth Am is exciting, relevant and memorable, and we provide an array of opportunities for students to learn through doing—by celebrating Jewish holidays, trying out different Jewish rituals, mastering certain Jewish skills, studying Jewish texts and wrestling with significant Jewish ideas.
Our congregation is a loving place where children know that they are loved for who they are—precious, holy, each created in the divine image. Within our education programs we establish smaller learning communities where participants develop deep, long-lasting friendships and a sense of safety and refuge from our high-stress culture.
In all of these ways, we inspire youth and families to be committed, knowledgeable, participating Reform Jews.
