B’Yachad Collaborative Hebrew School


Mission Statement
B’Yachad is a Hebrew word that means “together.” It symbolizes the union of the Religious Schools of Congregation Ohav Shalom, Temple Israel and B’nai Sholom Reform Congregation providing a quality Jewish education and a reinforced community for our children.  Based on Conservative religious traditions and values, Byachad serves and respects the needs of children from diverse Jewish backgrounds.  We strive to instill in our Religious School students and families the knowledge and skills necessary to carry on Jewish traditions at home and to participate actively in the synagogue and the broader Jewish community. The B’Yachad Religious School faculty is committed to providing our students with an understanding and appreciation of the core concepts of God, Torah, Israel, and ethical values, as they are embodied in our Jewish tradition. Through classroom instruction, family education, and community-based programs, we provide a rich and varied learning environment that is welcoming to all families and all types of learners. By working in partnership with families, and in the context of a nurturing Jewish community, we aim to develop positive and strong Jewish identities.​
