Jeannine Cotler wants to take Temple Beth Orr’s religious school in a new direction.
The new director of the Rosenberg Religious School is changing the model for both teachers and students by immersing themselves in the experiences of what it means to be Jewish using a multi-sensory approach.
This includes learning to read, understand and appreciate Hebrew in a new and meaningful way.
President Steven Marcus said they were especially excited about the paradigm shift in their approach to religious school.
“As Jews, we believe that we never stop learning. This is evident at Temple Beth Orr, where we take life-long learning to heart with our many, varied programs and classes offered throughout the year.”
Cotler has been a member of Temple Beth Orr for 21 years, and during this time, she has chaired the religious school committee and been an officer and a trustee on the board of trustees.
She received her B.S. in Elementary Education from Nova Southeastern University and has spent many years teaching in private and public schools, including Temple Beth Orr’s Kuhn Early Childhood Center and the Rosenberg Religious School.
Her four children grew up at Temple Beth Orr and are products of their many educational tracks.
“I am here now, as director, because of my love for Temple Beth Orr and my passion and enthusiasm for Jewish education,” said Cotler.
Temple Beth Orr offers a unique one-day-per-week interactive religious school program on Sunday mornings for children in Kindergarten-7th grade. Hebrew reading instruction is arranged online in small groups.
They also offer post-B’nai Mitzvah discussion-based classes for 8th-12th graders, including a 10th-grade confirmation program. There is also a youth program for 3rd-12th graders that focuses on fun social events.
Located at 2151 Riverside Drive in Coral Springs, Temple Beth Orr is a multi-generational and multi-ethnic community comprised of singles, couples, interfaith, and gay and lesbian families.
The opening day of Religious School at Temple Beth Orr is Sunday, August 29, 2021.
