PRTT 2023-2024 academic year

Welcome and Welcome Back, Everyone!

Beginnings are so exciting! We are looking forward to August and to the energy that our students and families breathe into all the plans we've made for the year ahead. We can't wait to get together again! There is nothing more wonderful than seeing new and familiar relationships between students and between parents blossom.  

A new year brings a new Shehecheyanu Moment!

Whether it's a familiar relationship or a new one it is always something to celebrate! We can always find something for which we are grateful: May God continue to grant us life and sustain us through these times as we create new connections together: students, parents, and teachers. As we build community, we will stretch the boundaries of our Jewish world at CBI, and nothing is more important here than the home we build together. One thing has not changed: the most important thing is to take care of each other and to be together so that we can continue growing Jewishly.  

What has changed? There's a Sunday Preschool at CBI!

New this year is a Sunday morning preschool, Gan Yom Rishon (GYR), for ages 2 - 4 during PRTT scheduled hours. We will also continue the popular GYR hour for parents/grandparents/caregivers and their children--babies and up--for a Jewish circle time, activity, and snack for children while parents have a chance to meet and talk. I am truly delighted for this opportunity, and I hope our Youth Lounge is filled with active and noisy kids and parents!

Please head over to PRTT on Facebook to stay up to speed with what we are doing. 

We’re ready for some Jewish community! We've got this!


PRTT: Makom Sheli!

PRTT: The Place for Me!

Warm Regards,
Maureen Sechan

Please Note: CBI uses an Annual Financial Commitment model rather than a yearly synagogue dues model. Religious School tuition for members requires just the Educational Programming and Supply Fee, thanks to a generous subsidy from CBI. Families can register for Religious School as non members, too. Please contact our administrative office if you'd like to learn more details about our AFC model.

2023-2024 Schedule

Pauline Rivkind Talmud Torah Religious School

Congregation B’nai Israel welcomes you to our Pauline Rivkind Talmud Torah Religious School! We are excited to partner with you to ensure that your child continues to build a rich foundation of Jewish knowledge in our warm and nurturing environment.

We recognize that children have differing learning styles. At CBI, we are committed to helping every student reach their full potential by providing experiences and instruction sensitive to the unique motivation and spark that exists in every child. Classroom experiences rely on art, movement, journaling, and multi-media techniques to engage our learners.

We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with The Institute for Southern Jewish Life and will now use their spiraled curriculum. Throughout our curriculum of Hebrew, Bible, History, and Holidays we continually seek to reinforce our special relationship to our faith and to each other by identifying the common thread of Torah and ethics. We place special emphasis on Tefillah (Prayer) and Tzedakah (Righteousness) to further enhance that goal.

We are very excited to have you join our community, and we take our mission seriously: from generation to generation, CBI leaves no-one behind! We welcome family participation in our school, and we look forward to getting to know you!

Email our Director of Lifelong Learning, Maureen Sechan, for information on how to register your child or call 727.381.4900 ext 1011.
