Special Opportunities for New Sunday School Families
Special Opportunity to
Experience our Congregation and Youth Education
Special Opportunity to
Congregation Beth Adam is a unique place – where people can have a truly contemporary Jewish experience. Beth Adam and its Religious School provide an open and supportive environment in which to explore and question. Our goal is to encourage a healthy religious identity – dynamic for the 21st century.
Perhaps you’ve thought about Religious School for your children but aren’t sure where, how, or even why. Beth Adam can help you on your journey. There is no typical family at Beth Adam – people come from diverse experiences and backgrounds. But what unites all of our families is that they are here because they feel comfortable and welcomed – and because they want their children to have a connection to Judaism and other Jewish children.
Special Opportunity this year: Families new to Beth Adam may send their children to Religious School for one year without becoming members. Religious School fees will apply. We are hoping that this program allows you to experience Beth Adam and see if this community is a good match for you. We hope it will be!
School runs from pre-K to 7th grade, and there is a teen program for 8th-12th graders. We meet on Sundays from 9:30-11:30 during the school year. In 6th and 7th grade, students who participate in the Bar/Bat Mitzvah Program also learn Hebrew and come on Wednesday afternoons for two hours.
Beth Adam is a place that values:
• Learning opportunities that support members’ connection with their Jewish heritage
• Open-mindedness and respect for differing views
• Thoughtfully questioning and exploring Jewish text and other sources of wisdom
• Acknowledgment of each congregant’s religious and spiritual journey
• Evolving to meet the needs of our growing congregation and community
• Nurturing connection and building community with each other as Jews and with all humanity
• Community engagement and social justice
To learn more about Beth Adam and/or its Religious School, contact Rabbi Robert Barr or Rabbi Laura Baum at 513-985-0400 today.
School starts on Sunday, September 11th and we hope to see you then. If you would like to come to the first day without committing to signing up for the full year, just call us to let us know.
