WES Beit Miriam--It's A Way Of Life!

A "Framework of Excellence" Accredited School





At the West End Synagogue, Beit Miriam Kehillah, our students and their families engage in meaningful Jewish learning and living.  Students develop a strong Jewish identity, a sense of community, and the skills and knowledge to practice Judaism within an environment that inspires students to live a Jewish Life.




It is our goal that:

  • Our students graduate with positive feelings about their experience at Beit Miriam and a strong sense of community.
  • Our students graduate with a strong foundation of Torah, Ivrit (Hebrew), T’filah (prayer), and Halacha (Jewish Law), based on Conservative* Judaism.
  • Our students make personal connections to Judaism, the Jewish community and to Israel through the study of our history and the exploration of Jewish rituals and values.
  • Our teachers develop meaningful relationships with our students and serve as role models for them.
  • Our faculty uses creative approaches to excite, enrich and engage our students and their families through their participation in experiential learning.


 *If “Conservative” is intimidating, just call us!
