Our Religious School
Temple Beth Abraham’s Ruth L. Diamond Religious School strives to make Jewish education a creative and joyous experience for children and families. We hope to inspire each student and provide them with the tools through our philosophy of “Learning through Living” to become:
Students of Torah who have the tools to live Jewishly in their family and community and thereby build a personal relationship with God and Israel.
We offer a unique two-day a week program on Tuesdays and Saturdays with special family programming, community programming and more spread throughout the year.
Ruth L. Diamond Religious School has three main principles that guide us.
- Personalized: We tailor the learning plans to meet the needs of each individual child. We provide flexibility in what, when, where, and how the student learns. We support parent involvement in the students’ learning and encourage relationships between student, teacher, and parents.
- Mastery – Based: Learning at TBA is mastery- based. We have 13 badges (areas of study) with 5 areas to master within each. We work with students to set goals to reach their own individual level of mastery.
- Experiential: At Temple Beth Abraham we believe that learning happens through doing. We celebrate real-life Jewish experiences – t’fillah, Shabbat, holidays, tikun olam, and mitzvot.
Temple Beth Abraham is proud to introduce a whole new program of learning for Kindergarten and First Grade families called Shorashim (Roots.) This program is on Saturday mornings only.
Kitah Bet- Kitah Zayin (2nd -7th grades) meets Tuesdays from 3:30-5:30 and Saturdays from 9:30-12:30
