Each Unique Voice Makes a Contribution

We believe that every student has a unique voice to contribute to the legacy of Jewish tradition. Students will study text from original source material, be challenged to provide thoughtful and modern responses to ancient and contemporary texts. We believe in twenty-first-century modalities of learning, and encourage students to grapple with the world around them through a Jewish lens.

A New Teen Education Program: TZOHAR

TZOHAR is the new Teen Education program of Ohr Kodesh Congregation. Starting Fall 2020, we are excited to be bringing high-level Jewish educational experiences to teens across Montgomery County and Washington, DC.

The word "Tzohar" means "Window," with a particular reference to the window at the top of Noah's ark from which he sent the raven and then the dove. We hope the education each child receives at Tzohar will be their window to the world.

TZOHAR is proud to be in partnership with Hadar DC, and is excited to be implementing the Moot Beit Din Program as part of our offerings. We are also thrilled to be joining with acclaimed community afterschool MoEd to offer intensive Hebrew language programming.

Teen Beit Midrash

Teen Beit Midrash (TBM) is an education program for students in 8th-12th grades. Co-led by Rabbi Corey Helfand and Jackie Krisch, TBM will welcome both new and returning students this fall, the start of its seventh year. Each week, Rabbi Helfand and Jackie facilitate enriching conversations across a variety of Jewish topics and texts.
