Religious School

The primary mission of the Beth Emeth Religious School (RS) is to support the development of Jewish identity, Jewish values, and connection to the Jewish community through traditional learning with experiential opportunities with the development of a curriculum, in collaboration with the School Committee, that balances historical perspectives and modern-day reflections to deliver well-rounded, accessible and stimulating education for all learners in a flexible environment.  Our school program is built on connection: with classmates, the CBE community, and to Judaism and Jewish identity.

For the 2023-24 school year, we are implementing a new model to align with this mission.  To learn more about the plans for this update, download the PowerPoint presentation shared with the school community in May 2023 here.

Shabbat Services 

In addition to our classroom experiences, students and their families are encouraged to participate in services.  There is always the opportunity to join in the celebration of Shabbat on both Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.   During the High Holidays, we offer age-level services, including a teen service, enabling our students to participate in an interactive service with their peers.
