Adult Education

We offer ongoing  and limited series adult education classes on a variety of fascinating topics, currently including the Talmud, Jewish Islamic Relations, and Yoga. 
Please see our
schedule for current and upcoming offerings.

Religious School

Brith Sholom’s religious school provides a Jewish learning experience for children in kindergarten through seventh grade. Kindergarten, first, and second grades meet once a week on Sunday mornings. Grades three through seven have classes on Sunday mornings and Wednesday afternoons. Students are expected to attend Shabbat and holiday services.

For the current school year, Brith Sholom and Temple Beth El are combining their religious schools virtually. The morning will include a prayer service, Hebrew class, and experiential program. Independent study is also available to families that cannot meet at the Beth El virual school time. Please speak with Rabbi Singer for the curriculum and to pick up books.

Celebration of Bar/Bat Mitzvah

The celebration of the bar or bat mitzvah is seen as a communal as well as family milestone. Generally, a student will seek a bar or bat mitzvah date and training with Rabbi Singer, which will include learning to chant Torah and Haftarah, lead parts of the prayer service and write a d’var Torah.

Confirmation Program 2020-2021

Open only to 7th (Post Bar/Bat Mitzvah) - 12th Graders. While the pandemic has kept us apart. There is something powerful about sitting with a good book that can connect and bond us together. This year we will re-explore the theme of: Jewish Literature & Creative Writing

Study Program: This year we will explore Jewish literature by doing a deep dive into fictional novels that are classics of Jewish literature. We will look at the values, ideas, religious/cultural motifs that make these novels particularly Jewish. We will combine our monthly reading and discussions with creative writing focused on developing our own Jewish fictional character and writing about his/her journey. We will Zoom together to talk about the book we are reading as well as share our written work. All participants will help one another through positive constructive criticism. Our goal is to put together a literary compilation that we can publish at the end of the year. Please speak with Rabbi Singer for the book, calendar, and Zoom link.

United Synagogue Youth (USY-LevUSY chapter)

 

Led by our youth director, Jacob Lador – our LevUSY chapter is incredibly active and fun. From latke frying to hamantaschen baking – there is always food and friends eager to have a great time together. Teens help plan the events they are interested in and if the past is any indicator – lock-ins, outdoor games, movies, and laser tag have all been popular. Our USY chapter is also dedicated to social justice work and engagement in the religious life of Brith Sholom often leading services, reading Torah, running Purim and Hanukkah events, and helping with the Faith Crawl, Shabbat dinners, and leading discussions of movies shown by the Bethlehem Interfaith Group (B.I.G.).
