Ohr Chadash Religious School…Growing, Learning & Succeeding

 Can You Believe It? We Are Already Four Months Into Our New School Year!

I am so very pleased to report that the Amazing Students of Ohr Chadash continue to learn and achieve at a fantastic pace!  Torah, Bible, Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh, Jewish Holidays, Blessings, Hebrew Language and Hebrew Reading have all been key elements of our focus this year. I am most impressed with how beautifully our students are now reading Hebrew, thanks to our new PHD reading program. Equally impressive has been our students’ excellent understanding of key Torah/Bible events and concepts, and of our beautiful Chagim (Holidays).

I want to acknowledge the outstanding work of our dedicated teachers, Rabbi Uri, Morah Shari, Morah Zahava, Morah Simcha, Morah Charna and Morah Chana. Todah Rabah to all of you for the Love and Jewish Knowledge that you beautifully share with all of our students, each and every session.

Most recently we have enjoyed several very successful programs, with both our students and parents, including Torah Family Feud, our Rosh Chodesh Mitzvah Day Of Giving and two amazing Chanukah Parties which included assembling and decorating beautiful Chanukiot . In January we will be having a Family Tu B’Shevat Seder on Sunday, January 28th and in February we will be having a very special Family Purim Program. Stay tuned for more details.

As always, I eagerly look forward to sharing all of our future Ohr Chadash successes, accomplishments and celebrations with all of you.  Once again, and most importantly, if you know of any families that might be interested in trying us out, please send them my way. You are all Ohr Chadash Emissaries.  And please remember that there will always be a very special place for every child, every teen and every family in Ohr Chadash.

Wishing You All A Happy & Healthy Secular New Year,
