Temple Beth El Religious School Mission Statement
The mission of the Religious School of Temple Beth El, a Reconstructionist Synagogue, is to give our children a positive Jewish identity based on a knowledge of Jewish culture and religion including values and concepts, text, history, Hebrew and prayer.
Our vision is...
- To stimulate their sense of community with a responsibility toward fellow Jews as well as all people and a deep concern for the State of Israel.
- To encourage the practice of Judaism in the home in addition to their experiences in the school and synagogue including spirituality, rituals, and ethics.
- To show parent and child their place in the ongoing history of the Jewish people.
- To provide a sufficient Hebrew background so that a student can intelligently participate in Jewish services and have a basis for further study in modern Hebrew.
