Temple Beit Torah’s religious school, known affectionately as Chaverim, (Hebrew for friends) offers children ages K – 7th grade the opportunity to learn about and appreciate their Jewish heritage. Through a curriculum developed to inspire, educate and have a lot of fun doing so, we hope you will find out more about Chaverim, by visiting us on Sunday mornings at TBT from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon.
