Bet SEfer

Or Shalom’s Bet Sefer (school) connects students to their Jewish community and heritage by introducing them to Jewish holidays, history, values, and the Hebrew language. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all learners and support them in their growth along their Jewish journey through song, dance, art, cooking, study and community service.

This year, we have exciting new changes in our Bet Sefer schedule:

  • ​​​Wednesdays from 4:00-5:30: Two 45-minute periods, each covering a grade-appropriate subject from our core curriculum. Programs for grades 2-7.
  • Thursdays from 3:00-4:30: An hour of hands-on learning about one subject, with all grades participating. Followed by 30 minutes of Hebrew.
  • A student who enrolls for one day or the other can participate in both. Until further notice, all sessions will be via Zoom.

In each grade, our studies include Jewish literacy, values, Hebrew, and social justice.  The Hebrew program helps our students become familiar with the Hebrew language and with the liturgy of the Shabbat services, recognize key Hebrew root words, and understand the big ideas of each prayer. All children engage in music, tefilah (prayer), and the study of Jewish holidays and Israel.

Our school theme is 'We are part of the story'.  

To put this theme into practice, we will focus on connecting our students to the larger community and to each other by appreciating the uniqueness of every person and adding our own voice to support those around us. Hand in hand with this is the importance of a diverse and vibrant community.
