Ramona L. Brand, Director of Youth Learning


Welcome to Beth-El Religious School.


Nesiyah, the name of our vibrant educational program, means journey, or trip, passage, voyage, wandering, or the act of traveling from one place to another. All these terms are an apt description of what it means to delve into a Jewish education.  At Beth-El Religious School, students may take a "trip" to Israel or other lands where Jews have lived through millennia.  They will discover a spiritual passage from childhood through teen years as they become B'nei Mitzvah and Confirmands.  We may wander through Torah to make personal and interpersonal connections.  And all of us will travel from this starting point of our Nesiyah program to a place that we yet do not know.  Together, it will be a blessing.

Here at Beth-El we welcome you and your child to take an amazing Jewish Journey and discover learning that begins in this building but will expand outward into your homes, our community and the world beyond. We will also journey within ourselves as we delve into the heart of what it means to center lives around strong Jewish values.

Nesiyah will challenge our teachers and students alike to think differently about what a Jewish education looks and feels like. Our high teacher-student ratio allows for in-depth learning and personalization. We will use music, art, Teva (nature) and sports to excite learning and provide hands-on exploration. Field trips will take our students out of the building and provide opportunities for them to encounter Judaism in action in the world around us. Chugim electives, a highlight of our year, engage our students in exciting, relevant projects. Our center-based classrooms emphasize teachers as facilitators and ask students to take an active role in their educational explorations. . The Nesiyah Shabbat family program is designed to engage adult and student learners together.

I warmly welcome you to our 2017-18 academic school year.  One of our sages once said that "education without vision is like a present without a future."  Our children are our future, and it is our goal to guide them with vision as they learn and grow.
