TBE takes pride in the strongest and most comprehensive Jewish programming for children and teens in Santa Cruz County, including our deeply meaningful and personalized Bar and Bat Mitzvah program. Your children will make Jewish friends, experience the joy of Jewish tradition and become immersed in their Jewish heritage, culture and community.

Mazel Tots for Parents and Tots: Our wonderful monthly Sunday morning program, 9:45-11:15 AM, invites youngsters and their parents to sing, create, meet, have fun, and learn about Judaism. All are welcome.

Temple School - kindergarten through 10th grade: Temple School at Temple Beth El is an exciting and dynamic place for kids, probably quite different from the Religious school experience you grew up with. Our goal is that our students will love attending and will be proud and delighted to be Jewish.

Because we’re the largest Jewish community in the Monterey Bay area, our students strengthen their Jewish identity by connecting with many other Jewish kids their age - from their earliest memories through their Bar and Bat Mitzvah and Confirmation.

You don’t have to be “religious” to send your children to Temple School. As Jews, we explore what we think and believe without doctrine. Interfaith families are welcome, and we are open and affirming.

Temple School Registration Packet for 2019/20 - Unless you are enrolling your child in kindergarten you must first turn in your Temple Membership form before registering your child(ren) for Temple School.
