What’s in a name? In the case of the B’nai Israel Talmud Torah—everything! We believe that Jewish education is a continuum. Formal Jewish education may begin in kindergarten, but the middle and teen years are as important for Jewish identity, development, and continuity as are the early years. We provide a quality educational program for students in grades K through 10 with an educational program that is designed to provide both knowledge and inspiration. It is our mission to provide the building blocks for Jewish living so that students are stimulated to feel connected by their relationships and to become active and contributing members in their families, communities and within the larger Jewish world. The B’nai Israel Talmud Torah program also takes advantage of the outstanding cultural sites and social action opportunities available to us in the greater Washington, DC area. Please contact Education Director, Moshe Ben-Lev or call 301-881-6550 with any questions. We look forward to learning with you!
