wiesenberg2Our Bar/Bat Mitzvah Readiness program begins in 3rd grade, however, we offer fantastic school programming for our K-1-2 students who want to get a jump on their Hebrew and Jewish Education.

Fantastic things are happening in our school this year, and it is all thanks to you, our members. Thanks to recommendations from parents and students, COLLAGE our new family learning model, is in its third year. COLLAGE allows each family endless options for fun, learning and time together through Temple Beth Torah. Each child comes to class once a week (6th graders have Boot Camp too, of course!) and families enjoy a variety of fun events, services, trips and dinners every month at your discretion. Your freedom to create a Religious Education that works for today’s busy families inspired the name, COLLAGE – piecing together your family, our events, and Jewish tradition into something beautiful.

7thgrade classes still take place on Thursdays, 5:30-7:30 pm. TEEN Programming Grades 8-12 (JTV Our High School Community Service Program) which takes place on alternate Wednesdays 6:30pm-8:15pm.
