Interactive learning makes our tradition come alive.

Passover-family-ed-5771Passover family education is one of several times during the year when parents join in school activities.

What is the role of the parent? Materials are sent home, which will enable parents to reinforce what is taught in the classroom, and particularly to coach their children with Hebrew basics. We also ask parents’ participation in our Family Education programs and Family Services.

When is registration? Students normally register over the summer for September, but are welcome to join the program at any time during the year. Contact either Rabbi Moritt or Kay Magilavy, 201-333-4229 of Temple Beth-El in Jersey City or Rabbi Felix, 201-858-2020, of Temple Beth Am in Bayonne. They are available to answer any questions or to provide further information.
