COVID-19 and the Einhorn Center for Jewish Education

 

COVID-19 has changed how we're learning here at the Einhorn Center for Jewish Education. The health and safety of our students and families is our top priority! This Fall we are exclusively using an online format. Logged in users can access our learning materials through the Student Assignments page. We will be updating our Student Assignments page on a weekly basis with each class's assignments.  

Due to the online format this year, we will not be offering our Arba for Four-Year-Olds program; however, we will be doing online preschool programs throughout the year around various holidays. Stay tuned for more updates!

Welcome to the Einhorn Center for Jewish Education at Congregation Beth Emeth!

 

HOW DO WE MEASURE SUCCESS OF A RELIGIOUS SCHOOL PROGRAM?

At the Einhorn Center for Jewish Education, the greatest reflection of the quality of our programming is in the smiles and happiness of our students!

With a spirited academic and culturally enriching program that is delivered to meet the needs of all learners in grades K-10, our students develop a lifelong love of Judaism! We make learning fun with art, music, dance, technology, cooking, a lending library, junior choir, Hebrew enrichment, gaga and so much more.

Our programming also includes "Arba for Fours class," two Sundays a month from 9:30 a.m. to noon. This is in addition to our revised, regular monthly pre-school program for families, K'tanim, led by pre-school teacher, Jenn Steuer.

For our teens, we offer the opportunity to become a Madrachim where they can assist teachers in our classrooms. We also provide our 8th graders the opportunity to study each month with different teachers covering a variety of topics in our Grade 8 Meet and Eat program.

Opportunities for learners of all ages abound at CBE every Sunday morning when school is in session. Visit the Parenting Center, a staffed playroom for ages infant to 5, which is a warm, friendly place for families with young children. Parents also use the Parenting Center as a place to leave the little ones while joining one of the many adult learning opportunities that are available on Sunday mornings.

Beth Emeth Junior Choir

What is Jr. Choir?

Quite honestly, if you are in 3rd through 8th grade, it’s the most fun you could possibly have at temple! Our Jr. Choir not only leads the amazing Chanukah service in the winter, but this year, Jr. Choir members will also be singing on the bima with our house band for our monthly Shabbat Unplugged services! This is an opportunity for our young people to learn the prayers for Shabbat evening (great help in preparing for Bar/Bat Mitzvah), take a strong leadership role at the temple, and sing out with their hearts and souls. Rehearsals take place on Sunday mornings during religious school and no experience is required. It’s pure fun! Please contact Lita for more information.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is an exciting time for a child and family and we at Beth Emeth strive to make the process meaningful and fun. Bar/Bat Mitzvah dates are assigned at the end of your child’s fifth-grade year. If your child begins Religious School after that time, don’t worry, a date will be available for him/her. Approximately 9-12 months prior to your child’s date, you will be notified that your child will be working with Cantor Schechtman to begin their preparation. The B’nei Mitzvah classes are held on Wednesday afternoons (when most of our b’nai mitzvah candidates are already here attending religious school). Every child will be given plenty of preparation time in a friendly study group setting with the Cantor and other Bar/Bat Mitzvah students. We provide prepared materials that layout all of the requirements in a clear and easy to follow manual and the use of MP3 files to assist in studying so that our students are able to chant their way through the prayers and Torah portions with great fluency.

In addition, students will be meeting with Rabbi Shpeen to discuss their d’var torah (sermon); and with Deb Sokoler to plan/discuss their Mitzvah Project. The details for the entire Bar/Bat Mitzvah process are in our comprehensive manual. CLICK HERE to view/download the manual.

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience is an important milestone for your child and family and it also can be the cause of stress for an almost 13-year-old. Through our well-organized program and caring staff, our program is designed to address a student's needs so that they can achieve their personal potential. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Cantor Kohn.

Confirmation

Confirmation is an opportunity for our tenth graders to spend an entire year studying with their Rabbi. The theme and curriculum of the program is OUR SEARCH FOR GOD. Discussions center around the study of various philosophers and texts relative to understanding God in Judaism and the relationship each of us can share with God. In addition, we explore prayer as the vehicle in which we communicate with God. Ultimately, the goal of the program is to encourage the students to begin to consider more seriously their own conception, relationship and the role that God plays in their lives. While understanding that this is a lifelong process, it is our hope that through their Confirmation experience the students will have a firm foundation upon which this process will evolve. The Confirmation Program culminates with the students putting together a creative Shabbat Service which echoes their reflections of the things that they have learned during their Religious School years but most significantly the material studied during their Confirmation year.
