Religious School

Meitin Alliance for Growth and Learning

Congregation Beth Am has a vested interest in its children developing a relationship with God. We provide our children with the opportunity to learn about Jewish history, Hebrew, holidays, prayers, Tikkun Olam, Tzedakah, and G’Milut Hasadim. Regardless of age Judaism always has something to teach us. With knowledge we can strengthen our; Jewish identity, connection to Israel, and love of Torah.

Temple Shir Shalom and Temple Israel joined together in 2016 to create a collaborative religious school.  This community school is called the Meitin Alliance for Growth and Learning, known as MAGAL, the Hebrew word for circle and a symbol of oneness.  Although each congregation has its unique character, we are one in our commitment to provide a strong Jewish education and identity to our children.  We are so happy and excited that our children have more Jewish students with whom to connect!

All Classes are held at Temple Israel, 50 Moss Road in Winter Springs.  

The core elements and skills of our faith come naturally to MAGAL students thanks to the integrated curriculum, that emphasizes mastery and understanding over rote. These elements give our students ownership of their identity and help them feel comfortable discussing the world around them with a Jewish outlook. It also means they learn how to transmit all that is wonderful in our heritage to the world beyond the doors of the synagogue, whether it be part of a school project or as individuals. Hebrew school learning is reinforced and supplemented by regular Kabbalat Shabbat and Saturday morning services. Students may take part in services so they feel at home in any synagogue in the world.

School times:
Sundays from 9:00am – 12:30pm for all children in grades K – 7. 
Wednesdays from 5pm – 6:30pm in grades 3 – 7.
