Return to 5780 School Year Info

Welcome to the 5780 year at Kadima Beth El!  We’re looking forward to all the possibilities!

“Kadima” means forward, and reflects our striving to help today’s families bring the vibrancy and relevance of the Jewish tradition forward into their lives. KBE recognizes and cherishes the diversity of its learners and welcomes all kinds of Jewish families.

Attending school at Kadima Beth El helps your children feel pride in their Jewish identity, develop a connection to other Jews, and feel knowledgeable about their religion. These are the tools they need to develop healthy communities and have a positive impact on their families, friends, and the world.

The first day of school is Wednesday, September 11.
