Welcome to Beit Midrash!

Beit Midrash literally means “house of learning” and is the name of the youth education program here at Beit Am. At Beit Midrash, we strive to provide a source of Jewish identity and Jewish cultural literacy to the children within our membership. We strive to immerse students in Jewish culture, history, and music from around the world. Our school-wide curriculum includes: Torah, ritual practice (avodah), Jewish values (derekh eretz), and Jewish history.

Beit Midrash meets Sunday mornings from mid-September to mid-May and classes are for students in preschool through 7th Grade with small-group Hebrew classes beginning in grade 3. 

Parent Engagement: We encourage families to come see what your child(ren) are learning, join us during morning Tefillah and closing circle, participate in Mitzvah mornings, and/or ask a teacher if you can lend a hand with something.

Please look for additional announcements about High Holiday programming for children.
