8 Things You Can Do….
to help make your child’s Jewish Learning at BETC successful
- Make Religious Education a priority. As much as possible, eliminate interference and conflict with religious school classes and programs. If Jewish education is made a priority in your family -- it will be seen as a priority by your child(ren).
- Model Jewish living for your child through celebration of Shabbat and holidays, giving tzedakah, and incorporating Jewish values into your life.
- Become familiar with and involved in your child's Jewish learning.
- Encourage kavod (respect) for teachers and peers and positive attitudes about Judaism and Jewish learning.
- Model Jewish learning for your child by making your own commitment to study and by attending our family education programs.
- Make sure that your child attends classes regularly and arrives on time.
- Keep in touch with your child’s teachers and be aware of upcoming activities and events. You will receive a school calendar in the summer, scheduling updates each month, and important school mailings throughout the year.
- Come with your child to services (both special family services and regular Shabbat and festival worship) and encourage him/her to attend Youth kehillah.
V'shinatam l'vanecha – וְשִׁנַּנְתָּם לְבָנֶיךָ
Teach the tradition diligently to your children so that they may in turn teach it diligently to theirs.
At the Beth El Temple Center we take this charge to heart. We look forward to an association with parents and children that helps children to develop a strong sense of self-esteem that enables them to live, love and learn well so they will indeed pass their heritage on to others.
