Early Childhood Education
At Solomon Schechter Day School, we understand the importance of laying a strong foundation for a child's education. Our Early Childhood Education program provides a nurturing and stimulating environment where children can explore, play, and learn. Our experienced teachers foster the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of each child, ensuring they are well-prepared for their academic journey.
Our Religious School offers a comprehensive Jewish education for children of all ages. Through interactive lessons, engaging activities, and meaningful experiences, we aim to cultivate a strong sense of Jewish identity and instill Jewish values in our students. Our dedicated educators foster a love for Jewish traditions, teach Hebrew language skills, and promote a deep understanding of Jewish history, culture, and ethics.
Bar/Bat Mitzvah Preparation
Preparing for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a significant milestone in the life of a Jewish child. At Ohev Shalom, we provide personalized and comprehensive Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation classes to ensure our students feel confident and proud as they step onto the bimah. Our experienced instructors guide students through the study of Torah, Haftarah, Jewish prayers, and help them develop a meaningful connection to their Jewish heritage.
Our vibrant teen programs offer a supportive community for Jewish teenagers to come together, explore their identity, and engage in meaningful activities. From leadership development programs to social justice initiatives, our teens have the opportunity to make a positive impact in the world while strengthening their Jewish roots.
Family Programs and Engagement
At Ohev Shalom, we believe that family engagement is essential in nurturing strong Jewish values and building a connected community. Our Family Programs offer a variety of opportunities for families to come together, celebrate Jewish holidays, engage in meaningful conversations, and connect with other families who share their values.
Throughout the year, we organize vibrant holiday celebrations that bring families together in joyous and meaningful ways. From Hanukkah candle lighting ceremonies to Passover seders, these events provide opportunities for families to come together, learn, and experience the beauty of Jewish traditions.
We understand that parenting is a journey filled with challenges and joys. That's why we offer parenting workshops led by experienced professionals who provide guidance, support, and practical strategies for raising Jewish children in today's world. Our workshops cover a range of topics, including enhancing Jewish identity, fostering resilience, and nurturing strong family bonds.
Community service is an essential aspect of Jewish values, and we aim to instill a sense of responsibility and compassion in our community members.
