Together, as a community of learners we explore Judaism and all the wonderful aspects of living a Jewish life. We place a strong focus on mitzvot, holidays, rituals, Israel, and community. We learn through interactive activities, art, music, special events, family learning programs and more! Small group foundational Hebrew lessons, Hebrew Through Movement and Tefillah (group prayer) also take place throughout and flexible scheduling of individualized Hebrew lessons accommodate family needs.

Bimah Club is for CSS students in 5th grade and above, along with their families, on the b'nai mitzvah path! It is a special meeting opportunity for students and families preparing for b'nai mitzvah to come together to learn, pray, practice, plan and enjoy each other's company during this shared journey.
Bimah Club takes place once a month during Saturday morning Shabbat services beginning at 9:30am. The whole family is invited to take part in services and become more familiar and comfortable with ways everyone can join in! Students transition back and forth between learning separately and joining the congregation in the sanctuary to participate in services and help lead from the bimah.
After services, families are invited to stay and enjoy kiddush together and chat about b'nai mitzvah planning as well as have Rabbi Tow, Morah Jess and Executive Board representatives available for questions and support.
