Hebrew School

Children from CBI Hebrew School with Jane Shiya
Our school draws from experiential and informal education models and provides children a place to explore what it means to be Jewish in a welcoming, supportive and creative environment. 
We are a vibrant after school synagogue program located in the beautiful Northern Berkshires.  
We have three classrooms, spanning Pre-K through 7th grade. We also offer Family Education programs for all ages.
Currently educational offerings are being presented via Zoom, please contact the office for details.  We look forward to returning to in-person learning and will update this page when that occurs.
