Our Youth and Family Education team is comprised of an enthusiastic group of teachers dedicated to Jewish education through hands-on experiential learning. In addition to their knowledge of Judaic studies, Jewish Culture, and the study of Hebrew, our staff is talented in many other disciplines, including art, cooking, dance, music, and performance art. The teaching team uses these disciplines to enrich the classroom experience and offer diverse ways to express and discover one’s own individual Jewish identity and place in the Jewish community. Our lively staff fosters a learning environment reflective of Beth El’s education philosophy, allowing for a classroom experience that is both educational and fun.
