Congregation Beth Torah’s Weiner Religious School is a supplementary Jewish school for students in Pre-Kindergarten through High School, including a complete B’nai Mitzvah program.  “Supplementary” means that we intend to support and expand upon the Jewish education our students receive in their homes and with their families. Our purpose is to help each student in LEARNING and DOING as a Jew.

Weiner Religious School News

In late June, Bridey Stangler, our Director of Education will be moving out of state with her family.  Marcia Rittmaster will be filling in for a year as our part time Director of Education.  In Marcia style, she has already been paving the way for a fabulous 2016-2017 school year at the Weiner Religious School.  To register your student  click here.

Take a look at how much fun we had last year:





Registration?

Registration for the ’16-’17 school year has begun at the Weiner Religious School! And if your child is already in school, registration is really easy: just make sure the information on your forms is correct, sign them, and turn them in to the front office. If you need forms for a new registration, that’s no problem, too. You can meet a YAEC representative on any Sunday morning to pick up your forms (for current students or for new ones), or swing by the office during the week. If you know someone who’s looking for a great religious school, send ‘em our way—we’d love to have them!




Madrichim Program


Congregation Beth Torah’s Weiner Religious School Madrichim Program has been used as a model for other congregations around the country.  This program is open to 9th -12th grade students.  

One of the most important goals of our Madrichim Program is to expose teens to the challenges and responsibilities of Jewish education by placing them in the religious school, assisting our faculty to make the Jewish education of our younger students a meaningful and pleasurable experience.  In addition to serving as a role model and helping our teachers, the Madrichim program gives you the chance to form relationships with other teens at Beth Torah who enjoy being here during religious school hours.   This group knows how to have fun while working!  Because these students serve as role models, preference is given to teens currently enrolled in the Weiner Religious School or the Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy or those who have previously been confirmed.  All madrichim receive payment in the form of scholarships to be used for Jewish youth group activities (NFTY, BBYO, USY, etc), Jewish camp or an Israel trip or for community service hours.  



A Week in Education





LEARNING

Includes the study of prayer, theology, Torah, Hebrew, holidays, Jewish thought, history, Jewish values and contemporary issues facing the Jewish community and our community at large. 

DOING

Includes participation in field trips, social justice projects, holiday celebrations, worship, hands-on classroom activities and a variety of other programs and events. We also emphasize the importance of life cycle events within our tradition.

Each student at Congregation Beth Torah’s Weiner Religious School is offered the opportunity to grow as a Jew. Studies have revealed that the more quality Jewish education one receives, the better able the individual is to make critical Jewish life decisions and the better chance there is that the person will remain an active member of the Jewish community. Involvement helps foster a feeling of pride in being Jewish. We hope to set up a pattern of LEARNING and DOING that will continue throughout the life of the student.
