Religious School

Coming Soon: Enrollment for Religious School year 2021 - 2022

At Beit Haverim, our religious school helps children build a strong Jewish identity and commitment to Judaism. At every grade level, pre-K through Confirmation, we build community through study and practice of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), Tzedakah (charitable giving), T'fillah (worship), and Torah.

Meet our Religious School Director: Shelli Hutchinson

Shelli’s  love of Jewish youth programming began in earnest in tenth grade as the Social Action Vice President at Temple Kol Ami in West Bloomfield, Michigan. In the late 80’s, while earning her BSW and MSW, teaching 1st/2nd grade at a local synagogue was transformative. Her commitment to Jewish youth in the Reform movement spans over 30 years in Michigan, Maryland, Virginia, and California. As a religious educator for PK-12th grades, Youth Director for elementary, middle and high school age students, Tikkun Olam and Special Program Coordinator, Social Action Committee Chair, Religious School PTO Volunteer and Mitzvah Day Chair she is an advocate for Jewish education. Her passion lies in creating intentional meaningful inclusive spaces where all children and their families, love feeling Jewish, live Jewish values, and flourish Jewishly. Shelli has 3 teenagers, her daughter is a sophomore in college, her youngest is a Junior in high school and her soon to be graduate was confirmed with Rabbi Berg at Beit Haverim, in June 2020. Please reach out to Shelli with any questions, comments or suggestions, as she is interested in expanding  youth education and programming and values collaboration and input.

Dear Families,

Thank you for choosing a Jewish education for your child(ren).

We are committed to meeting the needs of each student through fostering Jewish identity, strengthening a sense of community, and providing learning experiences to shape a lifetime based in Jewish values.

Due to these unprecedented times our religious school will look different this year. We will be erring on the side of caution to protect our most vulnerable congregants. Weekly newsletters will keep you posted on our latest format and precautions.

Our current fall plan is to provide a combination of in-person outdoor education and online learning.

Anyone planning to have a B’nai Mitzvah must be enrolled in religious school. Religious school provides a combination of Judaic studies and Hebrew for all ages beginning in kindergarten.

If you would like to register for classes, have any questions, and/or would like to be added to the weekly Religious School newsletter please contact our Religious School Director, Shelli Hutchinson at
