Rabbi Leon Wind Religious School

Welcome to the family.

The Rabbi Leon Wind Religious School (RLWRS) is not just a school; it’s a community. In our close-knit group of students, teachers, and parents, we strive to create a safe and supportive environment for learning and growth. Along with learning the basic skills needed to participate in Jewish communal life, our students have the opportunity to explore what it means to be Jewish and to develop a sense of their own Jewish identities.

Students build strong and lasting relationships with their Jewish peers here at RLWRS, and students and their families are welcomed into the larger community of BSBI. We provide numerous opportunities for school families to connect with the shul community, including holiday programs and family Shabbat dinners.

RLWRS values egalitarianism and pluralism. Although we are part of a Conservative synagogue, our school welcomes families from a variety of Jewish backgrounds. Interfaith families, LGBTQ families, and families of color are also welcome here.
