Religious School

 

OJC offers an extensive Religious education starting from Kindergarten to Bar/Bat Mitzvah, all the way through the South Shore Chai (in conjunction with area synagogues). We make extra efforts for children with special needs to get the help they deserve and are very proud of our child to child mentoring program within the school, as well as our Family Chavruta program that engages our parents in discussions with our children about values that we all want to instill in our children.
