Talmud Torah

Our Talmud Torah is a rich supplementary school program that provides the children of our members an introduction to the wealth of topics in Judaic studies and a foundation of synagogue skills for the first eight years of their Jewish education.

We are proud of our low student-teacher ratio, our small class sizes and our warm and welcoming environment.  Our skilled and enthusiastic teaching staff is made up of community members and University of Wisconsin students.  We encourage family involvement and provide educational opportunities for all age groups on Shabbat and holidays in addition to our regular Talmud Torah classes.

In keeping with the importance our community places on Shabbat, Kitot gan, alef and bet (kindergarten, first and second grades) meet on Shabbat mornings, 10:30-12:00, with optional structured play 9:30-10:30. Our youngest students (K-2) also have class on Tuesday afternoons (4:00-5:45). Kitot gimel through zayin (grades 3-7) attend Saturday mornings 9:30-12:00 and both Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:00-5:45pm.

Younger children are always welcome to drop in for our age-appropriate Shabbat programming for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and their grownups: 10:30-11:30.

Please contact our Education Director, Beth Copelovitch, for more information about our curriculum or to discuss enrollment.  You can reach her at 256-7763 or education@bethisraelcenter.org.
