Lifelong Learning

Ohr Kodesh Congregation regards every person as having a place in the circle around the Torah, the Tree of Life. We maintain an inclusive educational environment that values every learner, at every age and stage and our varied interests and learning styles nourish a feast of intriguing choices for children, teens and adults of all ages and stages. Whether you're just taking first steps to know your Judaism or are well-steeped in Jewish learning, we have a place for you at our table.

Formal and informal learning opportunities are offered in many forms and venues, including in our homes, through life cycle events and experiences, and in the wider community as well as at the synagogue. We take full advantage of our congregation’s celebration of Shabbat and holidays as a holy time and space where learning flourishes.

We enjoy warm and supportive relationships with one another, our teachers, and our clergy, in a multi-generational learning community. Ohr Kodesh inspires all to savor the mitzvah of Talmud Torah, the worthy endeavor of Jewish study.

Take a look at our offerings. When will you join us?
