Mission and Vision
The leadership of Tiferet Bet Israel affirms that the strength and welfare of the Jewish people and the Congregation are inextricably bound to the Jewish education of students of all ages. From its earliest beginnings, the Jewish tradition has directed that the laws, customs and ceremonies of our people be transmitted from generation to generation. The very fabric of Jewish life, from the public reading of the Torah to the retelling of the Exodus at the Seder table, to the obligation of lifelong study is focused on the ideals of Jewish education.
We believe that our school program should educate and equip our children to have a love of Judaism that will enrich their lives through adulthood. Our programs engender a proud Jewish identity, commitment to the Jewish community and Israel, enrichment of the Jewish home and commitment to Jewish ethical behaviors and values. The school program prepares and motivates students to practice Judaism out of respect and love for its traditions as well as knowledge of its history, language and practices.

The TBI Religious School is guided by a traditional yet progressive curriculum. Our teachers use the most modern and time-tested techniques in classroom management and curriculum presentation for our Kindergarten through High School students.
Our spiral curriculum focuses on Hebrew literacy, Torah, Jewish history, modern Israel history, Tikkun Olam (Repair of the World) and of course, traditions, customs and holidays. Our textbooks are carefully selected to augment and enhance our curriculum and to engage our students. We integrate informal learning with formal education at all grade levels, including music and art activities and family educational programs. The TBI Religious School has been developed to assist our children in becoming more knowledgeable about their Jewish heritage in a fun and supportive environment.
One of the most important values of our community is that of “tikkun olam,” repairing the world. There is no more perfect opportunity to create community and to teach our youth the importance of this value than to share in a hands-on, family social action project. This year we will come together once each month to do just that. The majority of these activities will be held from 12 PM – 2 PM on a Sunday morning immediately following Hebrew School. An inexpensive lunch option will be available for those participating.
