Our Mission

Congregation Beth Israel Ner Tamid’s School of Jewish Studies’ mission is to guide our students and families to an understanding and love of Judaism which will inspire them to live by its precepts and traditions. Our educators will immerse students in an engaging study of Hebrew, Torah, prayer, history, rituals, Israel and Jewish ethics and values, consistent with the teachings of the Conservative Movement. Through this comprehensive learning experience our students will develop a strong intellectual, emotional and spiritual connection to our heritage and the world wide Jewish community and a commitment to leading a meaningful Jewish life.
