Virtual Kehillah Packet, May 21, 2020





  • Provide dynamic Jewish experiences using exciting, innovative & engaging methodology 
  • Explore meaningful and relevant content with an emphasis on skill building and Jewish literacy
  • Encourage a personal connection to Israel and a commitment to Judaism that will play a central role in their adult lives
  • To make Beth El a “second home” by instilling a sense of belonging to our community and the Jewish people

Core Values 

  • Every Jew is a link in the chain of Jewish continuity.
  • Jewish identity is to be appreciated and celebrated.
  • The family and home are central in every child’s Jewish education.
  • Every learner deserves to have his/her personal needs met.
  • Torah, spirituality, ethics, and prayer provide a compass for living life.



Dismissal Updates:


Below you will find an image of the dismissal route. Please look it over and ask any questions you may have. Please note that for the 30 minutes of dismissal, the first entrance and exit on Northfield Road are reversed (the red arrow is our typical traffic pattern, which we will NOT be using for this 30 minute period). Reminder that Grades 1 and 2 are dismissed at 5:50 pm and Grades 3-7 are dismissed at 6:00 pm. If you have a child in Grades 3-7, even if you also are picking someone up in Grades 1 and 2, please arrive at 6:00 pm so that those who only have a child in Grades 1 and 2 can be at the front of the line. This will ensure a quicker dismissal procedure, which will benefit all of us!
