Temple Beth Am Religious School

Main page 3 resizeThe Religious School at Temple Beth Am holds a mission of lifelong, meaningful expression of Judaism through an innovative cirriculum. Our school is founded on the three core values:

  • Torah (Jewish Learning)
  • Avodah (worship)
  • G'milut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness)

In keeping with these values, we are constantly seeking new ways to teach our students to be mensches, to love Judaism, and to understand their history, theology, language, and culture so that they can make informed choices about their Judaism when they become adults. 

This year, we are proud to be voted "Best Hebrew School" in Seattle by the readers of Jewish in Seattle magazine. As one of the largest and most recognized Hebrew schools on the West Coast, it is our goal to continue fostering a strong community, embracing diversity, and providing top-quality education that challenges each of our students spiritually, intellectually and ethically.

Upcoming Events:

Navigating the Winter Holiday Season as Jewish and Interfaith Families
Sunday, December 10, 10:00 - 11:00 AM

Temple Beth Am Social Hall
The BAPA Education Program for next month will center around what is known in Jewish circles as the December Dilemma. The winter holidays can pose a dilemma for parents navigating the tricky talk of Christmas and Hanukkah with children. Temple Beth Am's Religious School Director, Rabbi Janine C. Schloss, will discuss with parents how to best facilitate and navigate this conversation with children.
