Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to Jewish past, celebrate Jewish present and link to Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy.
Beth Ami’s Jewish Cultural School invites you and your family to attend our Open House Jewish Field Day, Sunday, April 29th 10:00am until 12:00pm, at Countryside Recreation, 10470 Oak Street, Westminster. (main cross streets are 108th and Wadsworth Parkway, very close to Flatirons Crossing Mall). At 12:00pm please join us for a potluck Sephardic lunch. RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org.
In our school, children of all ages (preschool through 8th grade) study Torah and other Jewish texts from a humanistic point of view. We believe in human dignity—human beings possess the freedom and responsibility to determine the purpose and course of their lives without the need for supernatural guidance or protection. We study Jewish history and culture by reflecting on how human reason, initiative and courage make it possible for us to achieve our noblest aspirations.
During this school year our Jewish Cultural School has been studying tzedek (justice) throughout the Jewish world in the early 1900s. We began our year by sharing justice in our daily lives and linked justice to our study of each Jewish holiday throughout the year. We learned about our family members living in the early 1900s and studied famous leaders and organizations in Europe, Israel, and America during this time.
Our Jewish field day will be an opportunity to remember what we learned and to celebrate the accomplishments of Jews living in the early 1900s.
