Louisville Beit Sefer Yachad is a community Religious School/Hebrew School operated by Adath Jeshurun, Keneseth Israel Congregation, and Temple Shalom. Students in grades K through 8 from the three congregations attend classes on Wednesdays and Sundays at the Jewish Community Center.
LBSY has formed a partnership with the Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL) and has adopted their well-developed and comprehensive K-8 Judaic/Hebrew curriculum, which includes 10 key content areas: Community; Culture and Symbols; God; Hebrew and Prayer; Israel; Jewish History; Jewish Holidays; Jewish Lifecycle Events; Mitzvot and Jewish Values; and Tanach (Torah, Prophets and Writings). The curriculum is developmentally appropriate and nurtures students' Jewish identity; equipping them to live rich and meaningful lives. The post-bar/bat mitzvah year culminates in a visit to Jewish New York. The contact information for LBSY is below:
