Overview of Education
Congregation B’nai Tzedek serves as a center for Jewish education and quality family programming. Beginning with our youngest members, the Laura & Joel Greenzaid Early Childhood Center begins programming for 6 month olds and their mothers in our Babies at Play. Two through five year olds have a variety of programming, and our preschool program is considered one of the best in Montgomery County, Maryland.
The Bernice & Mannie Rabovsky Religious School provides the natural continuation in the flow of Jewish education. Our kindergarteners through second graders attend on Sunday mornings and delve into Shabbat, holidays, traditions and prayer. Our third through seventh graders attend twice a week on Sunday and either Monday or Wednesday afternoons. The children learn to read and write Hebrew, study Tanach, Midrash and Prayer. Our Wednesday evening Upper School program and Confirmation Class offer the post B'nai Mitzvah students a way to continue in their journey in Jewish education.
At Congregation B'nai Tzedek, Jewish family life education is an integral part of our school program. We have well designed programs in our B'nai Tzedek Learning Together BLT that bring parents and students together to study, explore and experience Judaism in a supportive and friendly synagogue environment. We help Jewish families to live, learn, lead and enjoy Jewish memories.
To continue one's Jewish education as an adult is extremely important. It sets an example for our children to follow. As adults we must not only tell our children, but have them learn by our example. Bringing Jewish traditions into the home and understanding why we do them is one of the hallmarks of our congregation. We offer a wide array of outstanding and stimulating adult education programs.
We strive to provide the best religious school in Montgomery County, Maryland, and our congregants enjoy living, learning and leading as Jews in our nurturing Kehillah.
