Kehillat Ma’arav believes that education is the cornerstone of Jewish life. Education is an entry to Jewish history, practice, traditions, and beliefs, and helps instill values and a sense of community. We take an active approach to learning and get the students out of their seats and engaged so they experience Jewish life, rather than just learn about it.

A connection to the past helps inform students’ values for the future. So in early education where a person’s identity begins to form, the work we do is to create positive associations with their Jewish identity so they can bring the power of their Jewish self to their lives.
A Builder of Jewish education is someone who crafts either time or space for Jewish learning in all its various forms. Our educators create organic Jewish opportunities so that learning for child and family is immersive and experiential.

Adat Ari El believes that all Jewish children deserve a Jewish education. The JLC (Jewish Learning Community - Adat Ari El's Religious School) was formed to create a community of Jewish learners. A Jewish education influences a child's life in many positive ways. It weaves a moral, ethical and thoughtful component into the educational foundation that brings children closer to Judaism and provides a meaningful experience that will translate into a life-long gift.
Adat Ari El Day School believes there is great importance in Jewish education. Jewish education grounds children in tradition, in family values, in a love of Israel, and the value of caring for one another.
The importance of Jewish education is multifaceted: to foster strong and vibrant students who will carry Judaism in their souls; to provide a strong foundation in the history, heritage, traditions, G-d, Israel, Bible, Mitzvot, music, art, and the overall beauty of Judaism; to teach students how to read Hebrew and feel comfortable chanting prayers; and to give students the tools to live a Jewish life as adults.
Every one of the students in our diverse ECE gets a Jewish education starting on day one. We infuse Judaism through songs and stories beginning with our infants through our kindergarteners. With our Middah of the Month, we make sure that each child understands the values inherent in our ancient tradition.
Temple Beth El actively promotes Jewish education among our youth and adults. We pride ourselves on a substantial investment in providing many opportunities to learn about Judaism and Judaic life as it relates to our place and responsibilities in the world. Our future generations gain deeper meaning in their lives through learning about Jewish history and the practice of Jewish values and observances.
