Jewish Education for Children with a Secular Humanistic Focus

Oraynu Children’s School is an integral part of Oraynu Congregation for Humanistic Judaism. It was created in 1968 by a group of dedicated parents to provide their children with a meaningful secular Jewish education.

Oraynu offers instruction in Jewish history, culture and values from Junior Kindergarten through Grade 7. Classes are from 10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Sundays from September to May.  At the end of  Grade 7, the children may opt to participate on our Bnai Mitzvah program which culminates in a unique and moving group ceremony.

Our Jewish studies are supported by a curriculum titled Values and History Based Curriculum for Secular Humanistic Jewish Supplementary Schools.

Oraynu Children’s School was profiled in the Jewish Tribune. To view the article “Jewish culture, values, history come alive at Oraynu Children’s School”, click here.
