Family Education


Our mission at Temple Oheb Shalom’s Office of Life Long Learning is to create and nurture a sacred community through study.  We believe that a strong commitment to lifelong learning brings the presence of God and k’dushah (holiness) into our lives, enhances religious expression, promotes acts of loving kindness and mutual respect, supports commitments to Tikkun Olam (repairing our world), and encourages personal ethical behavior according to Jewish values.  We embrace the individual Jewish journey of each member.



The Family Education/Beit Midrash Program encourages each family to:

  • Teach Jewish values and rituals
  • Explore their Jewish identity
  • Create Jewish memories
  • Participate in interactive multigenerational Jewish learning
