At Leo Baeck Temple, our purpose for youth education is to inspire our children and teens to develop a compelling, lifelong commitment to Judaism so that they will be able to make informed Jewish choices and live up to the highest ideals of our tradition. Everyone is welcome.
Our Religious School program begins in kindergarten and runs through twelfth grade, and we have a monthly family program on Sundays for three- and four-year-olds and their parents, as well. Please contact Rabbi Berney if you have any questions about our programs and want to learn more. We look forward to learning with you this year!
Welcome to LBT’s Sanford Ragins Religious School!
Our program is diverse, fun, interactive, and creative. We use informal, active, and experiential lessons to make Judaism come alive, and to connect Judaism to the lives of our students and families.
We seek to engage the diverse learning styles of our students through a variety of learning modalities. At LBT, students participate in gardening, singing, Israeli dancing, radio, drama, creative writing, game playing, art, and intellectual discourse.
We encourage students to question and challenge their beliefs. Students learn about the complexity of Torah and Israel through debate and constant inquiry. They become exposed to the rhythms of the Jewish calendar and Jewish holidays by living them and relating them to their everyday interests.
One of the most important goals of our program is not only to empower Jewish learners, but also to create community among our students and families. In our program, families experience the joys and challenges of life alongside one another, and we strive to make sure that students of all backgrounds and abilities are welcomed and included, celebrated and cherished.
We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
