Oseh Wins Arts Grant!

In mid-June, the Exelon’s Constellation’s Community Champions program awarded Oseh Religious School a $500 grant! We are so excited to have Ellen Lafferty, a community artist, come to our school during Hanukkah and lead “Creating Light and Pride through Art.” She will be teaching tile painting to the children which will result in a mural that will hang in the religious school wing of the building. Children will learn about anti-Semitism and what it means to be proud of being Jewish especially at a time when we are asked to be open about being Jewish by putting our chanukiot (menorahs) in the window.

About Our School

A place to explore and discover Judaism in a warm, supportive environment.

Oseh Shalom Religious School is a warm, accepting, inclusive community where we emphasize living a fun, vibrant Jewish life. This includes Hebrew and Judaic studies through experiential activities, exploration, and discovery. We take a hands-on learning approach to engage your child in community service, Hebrew, holidays, and Torah study.

Start your child’s Jewish journey at age 3 and continue to confirmation. Our school includes a social-oriented TeenConnect program, and Teen Torah Study. The school offers Sunday programming for preschool through 12th grade from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. In addition, our third through sixth graders experience Hebrew online learning for 20 minutes each week at a time your family can choose.
