Rabbi Leslie Yale Gutterman Religious School

We engage innovative principles to connect our students to their Jewish selves, to each other, to our Temple Beth-El community and Am Yisrael (the people of Israel). 

Our Belief

We believe in creating an environment where: our students are active participants, problem solvers and planners, our teachers are facilitators and guides who foster critical thinking, our community is an extension of the classroom.

Mitzvah Mania

The Mitzvah Mania program provides dozens of choices; we also enable our students to engage in a project of original design. Each student’s progress is monitored by the Mitzvah Mania Coordinators, Education Team, Religious School Teachers, and Clergy.  

B’nei Mitzvah

Bar/Bat-Mitzvah represents a commitment to Jewish learning and living, and of dedication to the welfare of the Jewish community.  Most of all, it represents a commitment to continued study and exploration.


  • Fantastic congregation! They all made this visitor feel welcomed!

  • Great community very welcoming.

  • Your rabbis, Sara Mack and Howard Voss-Altman are wonderful, compassionate human beings.

  • I've been a member for more than 50 years. The rabbis past and present have kept the eternal flame burning. The strength of the congregation is the members and the ability of the clergy to listen. My wife and I have moved away and now belong to two congregations. It is a great joy when we are able to come back for an event or service.
