Our Educational Philosophy

As an innovative, modern, and exciting Jewish community, Congregation Or Ami is committed to creating youth programs that are relevant and adapted to today’s Jewish learners.


Mensch-ify, our family learning program, is a parenting and pre-K to 6th grader Jewish “how to” experience, guiding parents on how to raise Jewish mensches (kind and compassionate Jewishly-engaged children), while simultaneously teaching pre-K to 6th graders how to live as mensches.

• Kesher means “connection,” and our Kesher Program is designed to foster deep connections among K-6th grade students. By consolidating Judaica and Hebrew learning, we have created an easier schedule for families, while maintaining the same fun, engaging atmosphere for students to learn and grow.

HUB*78 and HUB*9to12 provide community and connection to 7th-12th graders. In addition to strengthening their social bonds, teens gain leadership skills by expanding their minds and opening their hearts.
