Ohr Chadash Religious School, located in Queens, New York, is an example of a new model of supplementary Jewish education. Comprised of a consortium of three Conservative synagogues in eastern Queens, Ohr Chadash offers classroom learning combined with experiential programming of the three partner synagogues. We stress the importance of parent, grandparent and guardian education as well as outstanding Shabbat experiences for young people.
Ohr Chadash Religious School endeavors to nurture the child in the context of the family and the community. The goal of our school model is a religious school that your children will eagerly look forward to attending, not just this year, but in the years ahead as well. We will endeavor to inspire curiosity and love of learning in all our students.
The school meets once a week on Sunday mornings from 9 to 12:30 for all ages, from Pre-K to Teens. Every week, we will begin the day with a program for the entire school which will include Havdalah, songs, learning about the Torah portion of the week and much more. The rest of the day will be divided by subjects and each age group will rotate in four major subjects: Tanach (Bible), Jewish Holidays, Jewish History and Hebrew Language. In addition, there is a special Art and Music component to enrich the school program and provide a creative outlet for our students.
