Our Nursery School children make new friends in a warm, nurturing environment. They sing, dance, create, and enjoy while learning letters, numbers and shapes, and the meaning of our religious holidays.
Bar and Bat Mitzvah Preparation
Our curriculum is based on reinforcing our Hebrew and Blessings-fluency in preparation for the student's b'nai mitzvoth. We explore the topic of Mitzvoth as a whole and what our responsibility is to perform and honor these mitzvoth (commandments).
The philosophy of our Religious School is to give our children a total Jewish Education. We want them to cherish their Jewish Identity. Our curriculum includes mitzvah projects and innovative and creative family programs, which are set in an informal environment and create meaningful Jewish learning experiences for families.
Youth Group Activities
Our goal is to help make Temple Emanu-El a focus of Jewish life in Long Beach. Whether it's our popular holiday-themed events like "Pizza in the Hut" for Sukkot or Second Night Seder, Junior Congregation, Youth Group theater trips, our congregational Retreats to the Berkshires, summer services on the beach, or our enormously successful Youth Choir, we believe that having fun enriches and enhances the religious experience.
