Ohr Chayim Religious School

Ohr Chayim (Light of Our Lives) is BCC’s Family Education Program for children and their families.

Beginning at 10am on Saturdays (except for the 3rd Saturday of the month) families learn to read Hebrew phonetically, read and sing Shabbat prayers, learn about Jewish holidays and study torah. Parents join together for an adult class & discussion with the BCC Clergy and guest teachers. Ohr Chayim students led by Rabbi Heather Miller, Director of Education gather with their families at the end for closing prayers and melodies.

Ohr Chayim provides a warm, creative and communal atmosphere for children and their families. Children work in small groups to learn Hebrew, history, music and culture, while their parents meet to socialize and study Jewish texts with BCC’s clergy.

We look forward to seeing all our families this year and to meeting new families.
