Olam Chesed is a dynamic multi-age program of community-building, prayer with Rabbi David, and exploration of Jewish life through experiential learning.  We meet on Wednesdays at JCOGS from 4:15-6pm.  
Our theme this year is Ahavah/ Love. As in previous years, we build upon  earlier themes of holiness, blessing, mitzvah,  shalom, and chai —all words and concepts that feature prominently in the Shabbat liturgy.  We will begin each day with some Torah as we follow parshat hashavua/the weekly Torah portion.
Hebrew instruction is offered through online pods of 3-5 students and are assigned by level and age and scheduled by the Hebrew teachers.  
Pods bring students from JCOGS and Beth Jacob Synagogue together for an additional 30 minute focused class each week. 
We would be delighted for your child/ren to join us for a trial class. Contact Beth Liberman, director of education for more information.
