COS holds Hebrew school open house for prospective families


Congregation Ohev Shalom's Hebrew school students

The best way to decide if a Hebrew school is the right fit is to see it in action. Congregation Ohev Shalom Hebrew school will be holding an open house for any prospective Hebrew school families on Sunday, April 20 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Prospective students may spend the day or part of the day in class with their peers. Parents may sit in on classes and talk to education committee members and staff. Interested families may come for the entire day or part of the day.

Congregation Ohev Shalom Hebrew school is for children in grades pre-k through seventh grade. Pre-k through first grade attend on Sundays only. Second graders have a choice of attending on Sunday only or Sunday and Wednesday. Third through seventh grade attend Sundays and Wednesdays. Sunday hours are 9 a.m. -12:30 p.m. and Wednesdays are from 4 p.m.-6:30 p.m. Children entering pre-k through fifth grade may attend their first year by paying a nonmember school fee and do not have to be a member of Ohev Shalom.

The curriculum is focused on core subjects of Torah, holidays, mitzvot and Hebrew. The Hebrew program is prayer and Torah based. The older grades add such topics as Israel, American Jewish history and comparative religion. The curriculum is seen as a tool to create relationships between students, teachers and Madrichim so that a Hebrew school community is created.

Walk-ins are welcome but RSVP is requested to educasst@ohevshalom.org. Congregation Ohev Shalom is located at 613 Concourse Pkwy S. Maitland, Florida 32751.
