Congregation Or Ami offers education for all ages! Our Religious School begins with a Sunday program for Pre-Kindergarten through second grade. In third grade, our children begin adding Wednesdays for Hebrew Classes, and additional Hebrew studies on Sunday morning. Our children participate in our Shabbat Services as they begin their B’nai Mitzvah preparations. Following the B’nai Mitzvah year, we offer our ATID classes for more in depth learning as Rabbi Estes talks to our older kids about weaving Judaism into their everyday lives. Please explore the individual pages on this website for more information on these various programs.
Murray Adelstein holds the position of Education & Youth Director. We are fortunate to have Murray on our staff, as he brings a depth of knowledge to the position and our children benefit from his strong Judaic Studies background.
We believe that learning does not stop throughout our lives. We have a strong Adult Education program that schedules regular programming for all members. We bring speakers to our synagogue, and showcase our various members with knowledge of a variety of topics from personal finance to health and fitness. Rabbi Estes also brings his knowledge to his annual “summer course” where adults gather to explore aspects of Judaism. He helps everyone brush up or learn Hebrew in Shabbat after-luncheon studies. At Congregation Or Ami, there is always a place to learn.
