2019-2020 Travel Opportunities
This year Beth El students will be given the unique opportunity to learn outside the walls of our school and experience the world.
Our educational team at Beth El Synagogue continues to have an impactful and meaningful program that brings our 8th-12th grade students together to continue their Jewish education. We envision an experiential program that combines formal and informal learning, which fulfills the Talmudic saying: Gadol, she’haTalmud mayvee leeday ma’aseh.
“Learning is great for it leads to action.”
Together, we will think deeply about such important topics as our responsibility to support Israel, the meaning of Jewish community, and our commitment to social justice. We won’t just talk about these themes, and others, we will also take our learning outside the walls of our synagogues and the confines of our Omaha community, so that our students can be enriched by making a positive impact in our world.
