Welcome to Beth Shir Shalom. Take a tour with us!
There's always something exciting happening at Beth Shir Shalom.
We believe children learn best in a safe, loving, unhurried environment where they are free to explore.

A Place for Lifelong Learning

From our Early Childhood Center (preschool) to our Adult B’ney Mitzvah class, there is always learning happening at Beth Shir Shalom.

Beth Shir Shalom has a completely revamped educational program which we lovingly call JELLI (the Jewish Experiential Living and Learning Initiative).

Our program meets Sunday mornings, with optional Hebrew support on Tuesdays for grades 3-6.  Our new curriculum is a hands-on, project based learning program filled with opportunities for children to discover, create, build, and own their Jewish experiences.

At Beth Shir Shalom, Jewish education is life education, and we guide our students toward discovering all the ways that Jewish knowledge helps them find their better selves.
