Beit Sefer

The Hebrew language has a beautiful way of saying “school”: Beit Sefer, which literally translates to House of Books. CBJ’s Beit Sefer offers a balance of Hebrew and Jewish learning, with immersive cultural activities and events that engage children of all ages and broaden their understanding of Jewish tradition and heritage. 

Using the Shalom Learning reading curriculum, weekly Hebrew classes are currently taught via Zoom, with 6th and 7th graders preparing for their Bar or Bat Mitzvot with Rabbi Mills. Sunday cultural enrichment classes will be held at CBJ and sometimes off site, led by Rabbi Mills. Activities will include community volunteering, as well as artistic, culinary, and musical components that promote learning and understanding of holiday observances as well as both modern and traditional Jewish customs.
