Experiential Learning
Experiential Learning is an approach to Jewish education that has the ability both to strengthen one’s Jewish identity and create strong, positive emotional bonds with Jewish life. At Beth El we know that this approach can take place anywhere, both inside and outside the classroom and this year we are offering a few different options for families and students.
