What is your legacy?
"Legacy is about our child growing up in a nurturing Temple. We are forever woven into the fabric of TBS."
One of the School for Living Judaism's innovative programs is Family Shabbat. It offers parents and children an opportunity to learn together in a stimulating hands on environment. This is not your traditional 'Hebrew School'. Winners of the Family Sukkah building contest proudly smile with their sukkah.
Temple Beth Sholom Innovative School- Our teachers strive to provide a meaningful foundation, within the framework of a Jewish setting, for learning and developing in a loving, nurturing and enjoyable environment.

Youth & Teen Programming
Temple Beth Sholom offers a wide array of programming from infants to teens. The Temple Beth Sholom Innovative School is NAEYC accredited, reflects the Reggio Emilia teaching methodology in all that it encompasses and is a partner school for the AltSchool platform. We also offer Parent-Child classes, Shalom Baby, After School Enrichment, and Camp Beth Sholom as well as full and part time Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade. The School for Living Judaism, B'nei Mitzvah Program, Mini-Beshty, Beshty, jTravel, and iLimud give our youth and teens a plethora of learning, travel and spiritual opportunities.
There is always something for everyone when it comes to worshipping Shabbat. Every Friday night and Saturday morning we have worship services. The Foundation School celebrates Shabbat with the clergy each Friday morning with lively songs and prayers. Saturday mornings we have Tot Shabbat for children and Torah Study for adults. There are special musical Shabbats where we feature a variety of musical ensembles ranging from the Cantor's rock band for 'Rock On Shabbat' to hosting the Nava Tehila Ensemble from Jerusalem. The School for Living Judaism hosts 'Family Shabbat Experiences' twice a month where the whole family is involved in innovative hands on learning.
Social Justice Network
Tzedek, tzedek tirdof - Justice, justice you shall pursue! - Deuteronomy 16:20
The Social Justice Network's (SJN) mission is to Repair the World (Tikkun Olam) by motivating and educating our congregation to service and advocacy. The SJN has a variety of ways for you and your family to get involved. What action will you take? Direct Service Projects, Awareness, Advocacy or Action. Once a year in the spring hundreds of TBS members, family and friends join together for a day of service projects on 'TBS Mitzvah Weekend'.
Our Social Justice Network is comprised of members of our Temple Beth Sholom congregation who have embarked on tackling deep rooted societal challenges. For the past two years we have focused on food insecurity and economic injustice. Moving forward, we are addressing the issue of Gun Violence Prevention.
We Support Israel
There are a variety of ways that Temple Beth Sholom supports Israel. Our mission is to strengthen the bond between Israel, our congregation and the Miami community through advocacy, education and travel experiences. We have a full time shaliach (emissary from Israel) who helps advance all aspects of this mission. We also teach Israeli cooking classes, have an Israel committee, and offer Krav Maga classes and much more. Trips to Israel include the Magical Mitzvah Tour and the Magical Munchkin Mitzvah Tours over the summer, Birthright, and a Jewish Germany Trip. Every month we host an advocacy night for adults and youth where outside speakers from organizations such as AIPAC speak. Our schools also include a special curriculum related to Israeli traditions, history, current events and modern day culture. We celebrate national Israeli holidays such as Yom Ha'atzmaut and Yom Ha'Zikaron.
