Congregation B’nai Tikvah Religious School is a second home to our families, where kids are nurtured by devoted Jewish educators. Under the leadership of Keren Smith, Director of Education, we guide each child’s Jewish journey, cultivating personal Jewish pride and Kehillah, a community of Jewish friends thru deep and active learning and rich experiences.

Our goal is to spark a lifelong thirst for learning, and strong connections to our shared traditions, Israel, and tikun olam in our participants. Our program is designed to engage students with Judaism and develop in each one a sense of ownership over values and meaning.

We believe that a strong Jewish identity is fostered through a sense of belonging, celebrating holidays together, the gift of knowledge of our shared history and Torah, and thru brining our Jewish values to life in a constant strive to be a community that makes the world a better place.

While at the end of our program our children are prepared for their Bnai Mizvah study, the focus of our program is to set our students on a path to continue and explore their Jewish life.

Madrichim (Teen Helpers)

CBT continues its successful program of inviting young adults who have become Bar or Bat Mitzvah to assist in our Religious School.

Students in Eighth Grade and above are eligible to become madrikhim, literally, “guides.”

We will help these role models for younger children to develop as leaders through participating. As part of the training program, they will be responsible for establishing personal growth goals, be expected to attend the mandatory trainings, they will learn the skills necessary to act as adjunct instructors in conjunction with the classroom teacher, and they will create and implement a lesson as part of their final project.

  • For the madrikhim, this guidance and experience in our school will impart to them valuable skills for later life. In addition, these young people who work as support staff for the Religious School are an essential asset to our synagogue community, and we are delighted to have them with us.
  • The teens who participate in the madrikhim program can earn community service hours for their time, as well as a salary for those in grades 9-12.
