Our 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. New students are always welcome.

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.

  • Kindergarten (Gan) and 1st Grade (Aleph) meet on Monday 4:30 – 6:00pm.
  • Stay & Play, supervised by a teacher, is available for children in Kindergarten & 1st Grade from 6:00-6:30pm, for the convenience of parents who have an older child in the school.
  • 2nd Grade classes meet on Monday from 4:30-6:30pm.
  • 3rd-6th grades meet on Monday and Wednesday from 4:30 - 6:30pm.
  • Gesher (7th Grade) meets on Monday from 4:30- 6:30 pm.

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

We believe that a “hands-on” experiential curriculum is essential to Jewish learning. Woven throughout the program are a wide range of special family programs, such as our beloved mock life cycle events, OWHCafe, challah baking, and more! Parents and children come together to experience, learn and have fun.

  • We accept both member and non-member children in our Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade classes.
  • We strive to meet the educational and social needs of all of our students. If your child has special needs, our Director will work with you to create a program customized to the specific needs of your child.
