We are a body of parents, teachers, assistants, and friends who are concerned with the well-being and spiritual development of our children.
We feel it is our duty and obligation to teach our children about God and His Torah as commanded. (Deuteronomy 4:9-10; Deuteronomy 6:6-25).
Our school presently consists of a nursery and four classes: Yeshua’s Lambs I (Nursery) = birth to 2.5 years, Yeshua’s Lambs II = 2.5 to 4 years, Torah Tots = 4 through 6 years, and Tanakh Treasure Hunters = 7 through 9 years.
The nursery (birth through 2.5 years), and classes for 2.5 through 11 years are available every Shabbat. During Feast Day services which occur Sunday – Friday, only the nursery (birth through 2.5 years), and class for ages 2.5 to 4 years is available.
Shabbat School leadership team members are Rebbetzin Bernadette Hershberg, Joseph Marks, Elder, and Robin Overbey, Administrator.
In order to protect our children, everyone who volunteers for Shabbat School is required to go through a background check. A notary is available on Shabbat, after service, to notarize any forms brought to BYI. A copy of your driver’s license, or state issued picture ID, must accompany your background check forms for teacher/assistants (18+ and older). This is the first step in the process of vetting our volunteers. The forms can be printed from the website.
