COMMUNITY LEARNING LAB PHILOSOPHY

The Joseph and Corinne Schwartz Beth Israel Community Learning Lab provides a quality Jewish education and is committed to developing the creativity and potential of each child, along with vigorous intellectual growth, beginning at age 5. 

The school’s goals are to instill in children a positive Jewish identity, a love of Judaism and a desire to live Jewish life through the study of the Hebrew language, Bible, holidays, prayer, social studies and experiential programs.

Learning Lab Reimagined 

● Learning Lab Reimagined for 3rd-7th graders is a true learning lab where students will have the space to explore their Jewish identities on their own terms.

● They will have the opportunity to create individualized experiences, by choosing from an array of electives that touch on different aspects of their Jewish identities. Examples include: Torah, Israel, Prayer, Holidays, Rituals, Culture, etc.

● We will also be building Hebrew classes based on Hebrew level/comfort, instead of by grade. Pre B’nai Mitzvah students will be a part of a B’nai Mitzvah Boot Camp (B’nai Mitzvah Boot Camp, which will cover prayers and trope, among other essential elements of B’nai mitzvah instruction.)

● There will be four family programs throughout the year, in which the whole family can go on this Jewish adventure together.
