​      b'nai israel what happens in our world, can happen in yours

B'nai Israel Religious School (b.i.r.s.) is a beautiful place for a child's jewish education to begin. Starting with our free kindergarten, classes run through 7th grade and then continue on to confirmation. From morning prayer (t'filah), in class projects, learning of hebrew, holidays, jewish culture, history, field trips, tz'dakah, and mitzvah projects, an experiential curriculum enhances a child's sense of who they are in both their secular and religious world. Preparing a child for their eventual b'nai mitzvah is a rich and rewarding journey for each student and their family. Our principal, teachers, assistants and israeli emissaries are all warm, caring individuals that kids can relate to. Interfaith families are warmly welcome. Call 203.267.3396 to speak with education director Abby Peklo to find out how b.i.r.s. can be 'the starting point for jewish identity' for your child.
