We are a Community

The Jewish values and traditions taught are a vital part of the experience and lead to feeling part of a family.

Nurturing is in our Nature

Early Learning is a place of warmth, love and compassion that accepts and cares equally for all children. We encourage parent participation because Early Learning is a place to develop friendships that last a lifetime. Through seamless communications, collaboration, and responsiveness, parents and children develop strong bonds with other parents and teachers.

Culture, Community & Family

Early Learning at Beth Sholom is a vital part of Beth Sholom Congregation. Beth Sholom Congregation creates meaning and purpose in an evolving world. Across multiple generations, imbued with a love of Jewish life, and a desire to live Jewish values, as well as the aspiration to seek God’s presence through prayer, study, the power of community, and a connection with the land and people of Israel, we build heartfelt connections, inspired culture and acts of profound compassion.

Message from the Executive Director

Early Learning at Beth Sholom is truly a special place. Our long-tenured staff, our focus on parent engagement and our connection to a one-of-a-kind synagogue community creates an amazing opportunity to become part of our family. We take great pride in creating a loving, nurturing environment for our children.

My own family joined Beth Sholom Congregation when our children participated in the Early Learning program. Their experience was wonderful, and I know yours will be too!
