Education

Throughout the year, Or Haneshamah offers various programs for adults, including an Exploring Judaism course, shiras (song nights), films, study sessions, and other programs led by Rabbi Elizabeth Bolton. Check out our calendar for upcoming events.

We are very excited about our new Machaneh Shabbat (Shabbat Camp) program for children in grades 1 to 6. Held on Saturday mornings from September to June, the program takes children on a journey of experiential Jewish learning. For full details, click here. 

Children preparing for bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah belong to BaMaGaal (in the circle), our monthly B'nei Mitzvah Group for Jewish learning, social activities and support. Families planning to have a bar or bat mitzvah with the congregation are expected to be members of, and to participate in, the OrH community for two years. The BMG offers young members of Or Haneshamah families a chance to make connections with their peers. Parents and children support one another as each family approaches their bar or bat mitzvah celebration.
