BJE Builder - Debbie Blumenthal, ECE Director Temple Etz Chaim

Jan 31, 2021

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 Isaiah's Preschool and Religious School are a home for our families at the intersection of tradition and innovation. Our core values include respecting ourselves, respecting and honoring others, and respecting and protecting the world in which we live. It also includes the pursuit of justice and tikkun olam. It is exactly the nexus of Jewish tradition and modern innovations that has provided us with the tools we need to raise mensches, build community and repair the world, even today.

The Wise Schools know that all students deserve the opportunity to learn deeply, be creative, experience wholeness in order to make great happen in the world. This is even more important using a Judaic lens. A Wise School graduate feels a strong connection to the State of Israel, our history, holidays and rituals, and an obligation to improve their community.

Early Childhood is a critical time for children to develop their identity. Our Early Childhood Center provides each child with an environment created to stimulate curiosity, which in turn ignites learning and imagination. Our Judaic curriculum is multidimensional and joyful, helping to instill in each child an invaluable lifelong love of learning and community, which preserves our Jewish heritage.

Jewish education provides students with a "lab-like environment" to learn, explore, and apply Judaism to real life! Classrooms reflect the real world both in content and social development so that when students leave the classroom and grow up into Jewish adults they understand in their kishkas that Jewish life and values permeate the world.
