2021-2022 Annual Report


This year our synagogue celebrated 75 years of service to the community!

An essential part of the Temple Beth Hillel community is our Day School. While a milestone anniversary is often celebrated with fanfare and big moments of commemoration, children always help draw our attention to the smaller moments of magic, wonder, and joy.

There is no better sight than the pride on students’ faces as they share their Science Fair projects. There is no better sound than the giggles of kinder kiddos chasing a slippery apple across a cutting board to make charoset. There is no better texture than the hardened paper mache on the animals created by our kindergartners. No better smell than freshly filled hamentaschen coming out of the oven. No better taste than the Littmus Lozenges at our book party, and no better feeling than our community gathering together for a Shabbat picnic.

These small moments reveal how our community is shaped. It is in these proud smiles, sweet giggles, tastes of celebration, and spirit of community that it is clear how each and every soul’s inherent holiness is created in God’s image. As we look back on the 2021-2022 school year we are reminded of the sentiments of gratitude, growth, and optimism. We are grateful for the partnership of students, staff, and families. We are proud of our growth as individuals and as a collective, and we are excited about the promise of a bright future seen through the eyes of our students!


Beth Hillel Day School gives many heartfelt thanks to the following individuals, foundations, and corporations for their Annual Campaign gifts. The Annual Campaign is crucial to the success of BHDS, supporting approximately 5% of the annual operating budget, equal to about one-third of the amount awarded in tuition assistance year after year. The 2021-2022 Annual Campaign had 91% participation across the key constituencies.
