Bet Midrash Reimagining Information Session
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 • 24 Adar 57777:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Our goal in re-imagining the possibilities of Bet Midrash arises out of a deep appreciation for all of the things this community is: energetic, engaged in its Judaism, committed to wrestling with Jewish practice, musical and artistic, curious about the possibilities of what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century. These qualities characterize both our children and their parents, who are uniquely committed to the project of reconstructing Judaism for our community and for the future.
In the same way that adults express their deep attachment to Jewish life in a variety of ways, our children also need many paths to expressing their spirituality, curiosity, impulse to justice, and love of their fellow human beings, Jews, and Israel. For this reason, we are throwing out the rule book on Jewish education, and inviting families to be much more engaged in choosing their children's Jewish curriculum. Our new vision will allow both more Torah study and more Gaga, more engagement with Israel and more gardening, more spoken Hebrew and more drama, more LEGO building and more learning about keeping kosher, training to be social justice activists alongside becoming experts in holiday baking. These, and more, are the many ways into developing our Jewish selves.
