Welcome students, parents, and families!

Beit Midrash is the religious school of Beit Am, for children in pre-school through seventh grade and with engagment opportunities for their family members. 

Beit Midrash focuses on interactive Jewish education, covering Torah, Jewish values, holidays, prayer, history, culture, music, and more. Students in 3rd-6th grade attend an additonal Hebrew lesson each week. 

A day at Beit Midrash might include activities like pariticpating in an Israeli dance workshop, baking challah or cooking lentil soup, doing a scavenger hunt for chametz around the building, playing Hebrew letter charades, writing songs about Torah stories, debating Jewish ethics, painting sukkah decorations, sharing student interviews with family members and more. Several Mitzvah Days each year get students and their families out volunteering in the community.
