Bet SEfer

Experience Jewish learning in a community of acceptance and authenticity. Through spiritual practices, ethical action, critical thinking, and creative expression, our children develop positive Jewish connections to traditions, family, friends, and themselves.

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 (grades 2-7) 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:

  • ​​​Tuesdays from 4:30 –⁠ 6:00 pm. During this time, we will be covering a grade-appropriate subject from our core curriculum.
  • We will be holding Bet Sefer in-person at the Brandeis School from October 25 through May 2.

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.

Or Shalom membership is not required for enrollment. Please find enrollment materials on the right-hand side of this webpage. ⇒
