OWHC Religious School’s mission is to provide each child the opportunity to form a positive Jewish identity through acquiring skills and values for living a Jewish life, and connecting themselves to the Jewish community.

Religious School (K-7th Grade) Our Monday/Wednesday program. Students from the youngest through the oldest will be exposed to our rich Jewish heritage through art, music, ritual, mitzvot, Hebrew,G-d, history, Israel, holidays and technology.

Jr. Congregation (2nd-6th Grade) A twice a month Shabbat service experience with songs, prayer,Parashat HaShavuah, Aliyot and Kiddush.

Tot Shabbat & Mini-Minyan (Nursery-1st Grade) Age appropriate programs especially designed for our youngest children, with song, shomer Shabbat activities, prayer and snack. Meets 1-2 times monthly.

We believe that a “Hands-On” experiential curriculum is essential to Jewish learning, and woven throughout the program are family programs such as building a Sukkah and making a Tallit together. Parents and children come together to experience, learn and have fun.
