Hebrew School

Come LEARN with us at Congregation Or Zarua!

Our dynamic Hebrew School is designed for every age group and level of knowledge.

Kids love learning at Or Zarua’s Hebrew School.

Our K-12 experiences blend Jewish learning and Hebrew language with science, the arts, and cultural Jewish activities. For the youngest scholars, we make learning fun with active and participatory learning. Our B’nei Mitzvah Scholars (grades 6-7) delve into Judaic studies and sacred texts, paving the way for Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations.

High School students enjoy Rock Ivrit and Sushi & Study with Rabbi Bolton.

Discover the excitement of engaged learning.
