From the VTS Principal

A Jewish education is one of the greatest gifts you will give your child. From Judaism they will gain faith to sustain them in times of trouble and they will find a community in which to celebrate life successes ans gain comfort in times of need. Judaism will add depth and meaning to their lives and root their actions in values.
     The Viterbi Torah School at Congregation Beth El can help you give this wonderful gift to your child. We provide an environment which fosters close relationships between our students and dedicated teachers, facilitating the acquisition of knowledge of our tradition and fostering pride in our history. Our classrooms allow for engaging and creative projects, and we encourage the Jewish tradition of asking questions, leading to exciting discussions which strengthen students' individual and collective identities and help develop a stronger Jewish community.
     The core of our Judaic curriculum puts the child in the center of the learning experience. We recognize and embrace that each individual understands and connects with Judaism in a unique manner and we welcome and encourage each child to develop that relationship comfortably. The curriculum spans many subjects throughout grades K through 7, including holidays, Hebrew, Tikkun olam, Israel, prayer, music, Torah, lifecycle events, mitzvot, ethics, history, and role models.  Students engage in hands-on and project-based learning throughout the year to take pride in ownership over their Jewish learning experience. Opportunities for utilizing technology, student collaboration, Shabbat engagement, and family education are all part of our learning approach.
     Our Hebrew and t’fillah programs not only prepare students for B’nai Mitzvah, but they are also the foundation for a lifetime of Jewish practice and a connection with the people of Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel, and the global Jewish community.
     The success of our program is not complete without dedicated parents. You are a role model to your children about how Jewish life is lived. Your participation in school activities and your feedback on your children’s experience here help us to continually refine our program. Together we can build Jewish education one mind at a time. Open communication is the cornerstone to VTS’s strength. We welcome you to contact us with any questions or comments.
