Oseh Programming for Children
At Oseh we provide opportunities for children of all ages to come together for learning & community.
Multigenerational (birth to elders)
Oseh Together: Stay tuned for a fuller calendar, but in the meantime come to Oseh on Sunday, Jan 28, from 9 am for a multi-generational program where those of all ages can come together to celebrate and connect with Tu b’Shevat through various modalities. More details coming soon, or contact the office. At 11:15 we’ll share in a veggie/dairy pot-luck brunch together.
Youngest Children (birth to 6 yrs old)
Tot Shabbat: During our First Friday Family service (7:30-8:30 pm), our youngest participants join the congregation for the song-filled first part of services, but then can go to a different space for age-appropriate programming for the remainder of services.
Shabbat ShaBoker: On the 3rd Shabbat morning of the month, we greet each other with “Boker tov!/ Good morning!” From 11am-noon there is parent-led programming that can include song, stories, movement, and activities. At noon we come together with participants from the main service for a veggie/dairy community pot-luck lunch (kiddush). More details here.
Oseh School (pre-K child through 12th grader)
We have a wonderful experiential program for your child. Classes meet on Sundays from 9-11:30 am. Details below!
We have new mid-week programs for children and their parents. This year there are 3 6-week sessions with different topics. Different sessions meet on different days. Details on the Oseh School page!
We care deeply about helping your child step into learning, leadership, and their own development of their relationship to Judaism through our Bnai Mitzvah program. Our materials are presently being updated. Contact Renee Richards, the Oseh School Director at RRichards@Oseh-Shalom.org, or Rabbi Daria at RabbiDaria@Oseh-Shalom.org with questions.
Many of our children attend Jewish summer camp, in particular Camp Havaya, the Reconstructionist Camp. It’s a powerful way to strengthen your child’s Jewish identity. Did you know that the camp provides much scholarship for families? Oseh also has a fund. And for first time campers, you get $1000 off the summer’s tuition! Contact Renee Richards for more information.
Our teens can come together for community service, learning and community building through Teen Connect.
They can also study for Confirmation.
And they also gain leadership skills and great experience (and a modest salary) through our Madrikh program, where they help out in the Oseh School.
BBYO also has local chapters that our teens get involved with.
**Do you or your child/grandchild have any idea of something that would be great for your child/ grandchild and others? Contact Renee Richards, school director (RRichards@Oseh-Shalom.org) or Rabbi Daria (RabbiDaria@Oseh-Shalom.org) with ideas.
