For generations, we have nurtured youth on their path towards a Jewish identity that is personally meaningful as they learn Conservative traditions and practices. We can’t wait to meet your family. 

Registration for the 2024–2025 program year is now open!


B’nai Israel’s Dr. Stuart Lessans Talmud Torah is a dynamic, engaging and creative Jewish learning environment that incorporates the latest in educational practices. We especially focus on creating a social-emotional space where we recognize each student’s strengths and build a strong community.

The philosophy of our Talmud Torah program is based on a foundation of social and emotional learning through our innovative curriculum, Livnot Kehillah, building community. Through experiential and project-based learning, our teachers' role is to guide each child in finding their path towards a Jewish identity that is personally meaningful and encourages exploration as they learn Conservative traditions and practices.

Our students are active learners who create, explore, and are guided as they discover the relevance of Judaism in their lives. Our teachers are thoughtful, committed and caring who focus on a student-centered approach for learners with a variety of learning styles.

B’nai Israel Talmud Torah’s Lower School (grades K–6) aims to engage children in an exploration of Jewish texts, history, practices, beliefs, and Jewish values that are meaningful in the present and will be the foundation for a lifetime of participation in Jewish community.

The Talmud Torah Noar B’Yachad (meaning "Youth Together") program seeks to inspire our teens in grades 7 and up to lead their lives as identified, committed Jews, with a thirst for lifelong Jewish learning.

What are the goals we have for our Talmud Torah students? 
  • To learn Jewish practices and observances for Shabbat, holidays, and every day
  • To gain a working knowledge of prayer Hebrew
  • To build a Jewish community of peers and families
  • To experience working together in an environment including project-based learning and experiential education
  • To be joyful in their Jewish practices and beliefs

We look forward to learning with you!
