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 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 4:30-6:30pm. During this time, we will be covering a grade-appropriate subject from our core curriculum. Programs for grades 2-7.
  • We will be holding Bet Sefer at 3201 Ulloa St. (Former Grace Lutheran Church)

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.


The Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund has provided generous financial support for this program.
