Oseh Shalom’s religious school emphasizes living a Jewish life. This includes Hebrew and Judaic studies through experiential activities, exploration and discovery. But it also includes a focus on Jewish culture through Art, Cooking, Music and Dance.
The school offers Sunday School for preschool through Grade 7 from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. For students in grades 3-7, Oseh offers midweek school on Wednesdays afternoons. We also offer an easy-to-use, home-school option for students who are unable to attend the midweek program, although attending school is a better way to connect with other Jewish children and enjoy the richness of our community.
Oseh Shalom sees learning and involvement within the synagogue as a lifelong event. Therefor, our school does not end when a child has a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. We offer two exceptional programs: TeenConnect and Torah Study.

The mission of the Oseh Shalom Religious School is to teach and promote living Judaism – from a perspective of Reconstructionist thought and practice – as a way to create personal, communal and ecological tikkun olam–healing.
All Religious School programs are designed to these goals:
- Fostering a sense of Jewish Identity
- Promoting leadership qualities among all children
- Encouraging participation in the classroom and community
- Accepting students for their individual strengths
- Providing enriching lessons that assume students “can” rather than “cannot”
- Creating lasting friendships and bonds.
It is the actions of home, synagogue, and community interacting with school that will be the ultimate determinant of commitment.
