OUR CULTURE: CHARACTER & COMMUNITY COME FIRST
CBI’s Jewish education program for youth strives to be an inclusive, welcoming, and comfortable place. Through engaging and responsive educational practices, we seek to instill in children a strong sense of belonging to the Jewish community, as well as an enduring love of and relationship with Jewish culture, prayer, values, traditions, and texts.
MENSCHES: Make a Difference in Our Community, have Empathy for Others, use Nice Words and Actions, Share and Collaborate, have the Courage to do the Right Thing, and Help Others in Need.
STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS – THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!
In a role made possible by CBI’s Zach Avner Fund, our Special Needs Coordinator works with our families and teachers to support all of our learners on their Jewish journey. We look forward to building on our strong tradition of meeting the needs of all who wish to learn and live Jewishly.
HEBREW INSTRUCTION: ACTIVE, INDIVIDUALIZED ENGAGEMENT WITH LANGUAGE!
Hebrew instruction at CBI is fun and engaging! Using new, innovative programs made available by the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland, our students begin to learn Hebrew in Kindergarten. Upper elementary students decode names and sounds of Hebrew letters and vowel signs with a 1-on-1 mentor. Reinforcement of prayers and words are foundations of the 5th & 6th grade classes during our Wednesday Midrasha program.
