Education At Or Shalom
Or Shalom is very proud of our religious education programs. We offer classes for learners from preschool age through adulthood and have a unique program for children with special needs (Bonim). Our goal is for each student to develop a positive Jewish identity and a strong sense Jewish pride which will foster a commitment to embrace Jewish traditions throughout their lives.
We invite you to contact our Education Director, Marcia Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org, to visit our school and/or discuss the details of our offerings and how we may best meet the needs of your family. The details of our curriculum can be found on the Religious School page.
Or Shalom Religious School Earns
Or Shalom’s Religious School was awarded its Certificate of Accreditation by the Association of Reform Jewish Educators (ARJE) in December 2012. The accreditation process was a 1½ year effort on the part of the education committee, board of directors, teachers and congregants to review and assess each part of our religious school program, culminating with a weekend visit from the ARJE site team. There are only 21 accredited religious schools of the 875 Reform synagogues in North America. We are very proud of the accomplishment of our congregation and its commitment to quality Jewish education.
