6th grade builds on the concept of community by allowing students to mingle and mix with each other during lunch. The curriculum introduces the concept of Jewish values and mitzvot and how students can learn and live by them as they become young men and women. The lesson will include music, art and lots of discussions between students / students and students / teachers.

7th grade builds on the concept of community by allowing the students to mingle and mix with each other during lunch. Team building and group cooperation are essential components of the class development. The curriculum begins with additional mitzvot and values that pertain to students' daily lives. 7th graders will also explore ways to use music and media to develop Jewish identity and connection. Students learn to articulate how Jewish music is a type of midrash (an interpretation of a Jewish text), and focus on identifying core Jewish principles that are embedded in Jewish rock music.

*Note: Beth Am provides a variety of kid-friendly meals and water during each session. If your student has special dietary needs of any kind, please contact us at

CANCELLED: Camp Beth Am (5th-8th Grades): Due to current circumstances, Camp Beth Am has been cancelled for the coming year.
