Have an amazing summer BERS. We had the ultimate fun last day of school with all the kids learning about Shavuot. dancing the Israeli song Saleynu and then having an absolute blast with beach balls that they each received and a lovely collage of photos that all their classmates signed.

We are so lucky to have this unbelievable year, with sweet dedicated children, talented teachers and a variety of experiences, from gardening, to special guests from Israel and so much more. Looking forward to a great 2017-2018. Please contact us at info@bethelaustin.org to register for next year.

Passover Learning and Preparation at Beth El’s Religious School

This coming Sunday we will continue what we started last Sunday with our BERS kids. We will take a deeper look into Pesach and it’s traditions. The children will be divided into mixed-aged groups and each team will research an aspect of Passover, create a project, and then present it. These projects will be on display for our Annual Congregational Seder.

We hope all our BERS families will join other BE families and friends for an interactive, meaningful, and fun seder led by Cantor Ben-Moshe on the evening of April 11.

BERS welcomes representatives from Na’Aleh, a high school program from Israel. The children learned about opportunities to study in Israel.

The children also learned about Eliezer Ben’Yehuda, the father of modern Hebrew, practiced Ashrei, and talked about the week’s parashah.
