The goals we set for our Religious School at Temple Beth Shira use our heritage, traditions and history to make our lives today more meaningful, while encouraging commitment to Jews the world over. We want the students to use the books that we order to develop a Jewish Library of their own while learning from these text books during the class.
A positive attitude toward prayer and worship is reated through mastery of blessings, prayers and music and being able to read and understand our prayer book.
Ethics and Values
An appreciation of the contributions of Jewish tradion can influence one's personal life to apply the value of our Jewish heritage to the issues of every day living in our complex world.
By instilling a positive regard and respect of ceremony in a religious life (traditions) through familiarity with the Jewish religious calendar, person habits of ceremonial observance are embraced by actively participating in a wide array of Jewish practice.
A concern and appreciation is developed for the special importance of the Hebrew Language in the life of the Jewish people in the United State, Israel and the world over. Students learn the Hebrew Language, encouraging its use in prayer.
The Jewish People
Students develop a sense of identification with the Jewish people by actively participating in many aspects of the Jewish community, by acquiring knowledge of Jewish life in America, past and present, and by understanding the importance of the State of Israel and its history.
Developing a personal religious orientation and commitment through an understanding of the problems that have universally concerned mankind: studying how the Jewish people have dealt with these problems in the past and the importance of Reform Judaism's contributions in this important area.
Preparation for the Bar/Bat Mitzvah is provided by our spiritual Leader Cantor Ellen Stettner.
