Benainu is Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community Day School’s holistic and comprehensive health and wellness program. Led by internal staff, with a strong home-school connection, Benainu considers the wellbeing of the whole child—the physical, spiritual, moral, social, and emotional parts that form the students we love. Through this program, we equip our middle school students with the knowledge, skills, and guidance they need to effectively navigate the complexities of adolescent life and provide them with the foundation from which they can continue to have private, personal and meaningful conversations with trusted adults throughout their years at Beth Tfiloh and beyond.
