I’m so glad you’re considering our school. In 2021-22, we are excited to have an eco-Judaism student rabbi coming to Oseh to lead special programs and teach the children about the connection between nature, justice, and Judaism.
We also will be offering a Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) curriculum so each grade can make a difference! From environmental projects to bringing blankets to the homeless, our children will learn the meaning of “doing Judaism.” First children learn about traditional texts that support these sacred mitzvot (good deeds/sacred commandments), then children will take actions to bring them into reality.
We will, of course, offer all our Hebrew, Torah, and Jewish studies course work plus we’ll offer Jewish electives including Jewish cooking, crafts, music and Modern Hebrew. We manage to do all of this Sundays 9-11:30 am. And 3rd graders and up schedule 20 minutes of one-on-one Hebrew tutoring each week at their convenience. Seventh graders have a thorough bar/bat mitzvah prep program on Sundays which is engaging and relevant, and they meet with a tutor weekly.
If you would like to learn more about Oseh Shalom, please email or call me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the new or existing programs. Sign up for our newsletter to receive programming updates and special announcements.
All the very best.
