Education at Beth Tikvah

Welcome to the Beth Tikvah Department of Education! We are thrilled to be back for another year of Religious School, Hebrew Learning, and the Teen Program!

Membership at Beth Tikvah is required for enrollment in Religious School (excluding Parent Tot which is open to non-members). For more information on Beth Tikvah’s Religious School, Hebrew School, Youth Activities and Family Education, and to register, please email Director of Education Morissa Freiberg at

Religious School at Beth Tikvah is designed to provide students with the basic beliefs, skills, knowledge, understanding and connections to our Jewish past and present. These skills will enable students to participate comfortably and actively in all areas of Jewish life. Our positive environment offers experiences and programs to enhance religious and prayer book studies, and help students and their families adopt Jewish education as a lifelong pursuit. We encourage you to explore our class offerings and family activities, and to actively take part in teaching your family the Jewish values and traditions we strive to live by.



In order to help us further our goals, we welcome and encourage all children to participate in our Religious School and Hebrew School program, regardless of financial ability. We also feel that all children should be afforded the opportunity to learn regardless of their abilities. To assist, we have aides available to support special educational needs. Financial support through the Columbus Jewish Federation allows us to place an aide in the classroom to assist the teacher under certain specific circumstances. The Federation also provides the services of a consultant, who observes children in classrooms as requested and assists our teachers in adapting their teaching strategies to accommodate children with special needs.

We believe that all children have the ability to learn and grow and be a part of the greater Jewish community.

Please be sure to check the calendar for all upcoming event dates, times and locations.
