Or L’Atid, (which means “Light for the Future”) is the new program of youth education and engagement at Congregation Or Zarua. Or L’Atid serves as an umbrella banner for all experiences for children and youth of all ages provided by the congregation.
We offer a modern K-12 Hebrew School—
Hebrew School 2.0—that combines engaging Jewish learning with science and arts, providing a unique interdisciplinary experience for our youth. Learners in grades six through eight can participate in B’nei Mitzvah Scholars, which provides a slate of semester-based Judaic Studies courses that enable students to delve deep into our sacred texts and history in addition to intensive Hebrew Language instruction. High Schoolers can sign up for any or all of our teen offerings, including Rock-רק-Ivrit, a high-intermediate level Hebrew class, Sushi & Study with Rabbi Bolton, and a brand new Megillah Reading course for all post-B’nei Mitzvah students.
Outside of the classroom,
“Or L’Atid” provides opportunities for youth and families to learn and pray together in our extensive family programs and Shabbat services, all of which enable learners to pray in authentic, age-appropriate Shabbat services, while exploring Jewish song, values and texts with their peers. “Or L’Atid” also allows youth to connect to one another through our vibrant and continuously growing Kadima (6-8 grade) and USY (9-12 grade) Youth Group Chapters. These provide youth with opportunities to learn, pray and engage in hesed projects together, while enjoying time spent together.
