Hebrew school is in session at Temple Sholom of Ontario. We will hold classes virtually on Sundays starting at 10:00am PT. There will be two sessions, 40 minutes each, with a 10 minute break in between.

**This is a work-in-progress based on the status of the pandemic and as currently planned. We will alter the format and schedule based on updated information.

We have added a special Hebrew reading crash course for those students not adept in reading Hebrew. It will be from 9:20am to 9:50 am before the regular sessions.

The first session will focus on Hebrew reading and prayers. We will read from the week's Torah portion using a Chumash and an online site. Besides the main prayers used in our services, we will also learn Torah and Haftarah blessings.

The second session will be a general learning session of that weekly sedrah/portion. We will also discuss notable Jewish personalities, from celebrities to prophets and kings. There will also be special topics such as gossip and evolution.

Please let us know if you'd like to join us and of course if you have any questions. RSVP for Zoom links.

Temple Sholom of Ontario is proud to announce we are once again offering:

Miller Intro to Judaism Program

If you're thinking of converting to Judaism: Completion of the Intro Program fulfills the learning requirements for conversion of the Rabbinical Assembly of America. Once you finish the course requirements and secure a sponsoring rabbi, you are eligible to become officially part of the Jewish People.

If you're already Jewish: Whether you were born Jewish but never quite learned what it’s all about, you’re back after a long hiatus, or you’re just looking for a deeper understanding of your heritage, most of us could use a bit of a refresher. Jews from all walks of life enroll in the program: from people who had a Jewish day school education to those whose strongest connection was the annual box of matza on the kitchen counter.

More details to follow. Please let us know if you're interested. Application is attached below or reply with request for more information
