Our Mission: Beit Lev is an inclusive religious school dedicated to developing Jewish identity and supporting a Jewish community
for children and their families in the Greater Baltimore area.
 
     Beit Lev is Kol HaLev's educational program serving children entering Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade. We have created a more open, non-assumptive environment with a progressive Jewish educational experience for our children...and their parents.
     Our focus is on providing students and their families with an understanding of and sense of belonging to the Jewish culture. Following Reconstructionist practices, we aim to develop an identity with Judaism through a progressive approach that emphasizes community, spirituality and culture. Parents, professional educators, and our Rabbi worked together to create developmentally appropriate curriculum for children and their families. Our programming is playful, engaging and thought provoking.
 
     Our students population is divided into 4 classes:
  • Alef (PreK and K): This class provides a tactile and concrete introduction to Jewish life, including the foods and symbols of the holidays, introductions to the “main players” in the Torah, and Jewish values such as kindness and repairing the world.
  • Bet (Grades 1 and 2): This class allows our students to delve more deeply into the traditions of the holidays, learn more about Torah and prayer, and develop a deeper understanding of Jewish values.
  • Gimmel (Grades 3 and 4): In this class, our students begin to expand their understandings of the holidays beyond stories and traditions. They learn more about the Torah portions and other, lesser known, Biblical figures.
  • Daled (Grades 5 and 6): The Daled class is the beginning of more formal B’nai Mitzvah preparation. Students develop a more mature understanding of Jewish values and learn more about Jewish history beyond the times of the Torah.
     Our intentionally designed two-year spiraled curriculum ensures that students have a varied learning experience each year they are enrolled in Beit Lev, all the while building a solid foundation for living a meaningful Jewish life.
     Beit Lev meets two Sundays a month from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m during nine months of the school year for instruction, while opportunities for Tikkun Olam and community activities are integrated throughout the month. We also encourage families to participate in Shabbat services at Kol HaLev.
