B'nai Israel Religious School

B'nai Israel Religious School (BIRS)

We are a warm and welcoming place for joyful Jewish learning.  Students in grades K-2 meet on Sunday mornings, grades 3-7 meet on Sunday mornings and Tuesdays after school, and grades 8 & 9 (Confirmation Class) meet twice per month.  Nurturing teachers, bright classrooms, experiential learning, and a creative curriculum encourage our youth to explore and be proud of their Jewish identity, culture and history.    

Free Kindergarten

Our youngest students thrive as they begin their formal Jewish education with us.  We introduce our kindergarten class to the Hebrew alphabet, songs, holidays and values.  Kindergarten is tuition-free and synagogue membership is not required. 

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

A very important step towards proud Jewish identity, our Bar and Bat Mitzvah students benefit from in-depth, customized learning, individual tutoring and completion of a self-selected mitzvah project.   Students feel well-prepared and confident to lead a meaningful Shabbat worship service and create a special day for family and friends.
