B'nai Israel Community Day School

....learners today, leaders tomorrow!


Curriculum Designed for a Well Rounded Child


TEVA: Outdoor Environmental Program

Nature is an important emphasis at our school. Beginning at Two years old, classes receive 30 minutes of Teva (Gardening) every day. The students take part in helping grow vegetables, spices, fruits, and flowers in our garden beds. We also have chickens, fish, and rabbits on campus that the students help care for. Our Teva classes also include lessons on pollution, recycling, habitats, and so many more environmental studies. We hope to raise a generation that cares for our world and practices the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (Repair the World).

TALMUD TORAH: Jewish Studies

Beginning at Two years old, Jewish studies, values, and the basics of the Hebrew language are woven into each weekly lesson plan. Our teachers are equipped with a Judaics curriculum, provided by our Synagogue's Rabbi and leaders. Every Friday, our entire school gathers in the Synagogue to join together in the celebration of Shabbat. During our Shabbat program the students engage in giving Tzedakah, singing songs, and saying the Blessings.


TIFERET: Fine Arts

Our students engage in various activities of the fine arts that include art, yoga, dance, and music. We believe that art, in it's many forms, helps expand a child's abilities to interact with the environment around them, along with providing them with a wide set of skills and creative expression.




TIKKUN OLAM: Civic Involvement

We take the task of raising the next generation of community leaders very seriously. Throughout the year, our school participates in various charity drives. Every Friday, our students participate in giving Tzedakah (charitable giving) as part of our Shabbat program.  We have also partnered with Peaceful Paths as ongoing part of our civic involvement in the Gainesville community.
