Sulam strives to meet the needs of Congregation Beth Yeshurun teenagers by providing a relevant and increasingly sophisticated continuation of their Jewish education during their Bar/Bat Mitzvah year and post Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Through educational, spiritual and community programs, Sulam helps students increase their Judaic knowledge and strengthen their connection both to Beth Yeshurun and Am Yisrael. Our school is a place in which teens can continue to foster a positive Jewish identity, and develop a personal relationship with God and a lifelong commitment to Jewish learning, Israel and the Jewish people.
The word “Sulam” means ladder in Hebrew, and Sulam is the next step on our students' Jewish educational journey. Becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a major step along a lifelong Jewish journey. As our students mature, it is important that they continue their Jewish education in a setting that meets their cognitive, social, and emotional development. We are pleased to engage our 7th grade students in their own program designed to meet their unique needs.
