The Jewish Community of Ojai is an all-inclusive place where we offer semi-monthly Jewish education and Hebrew school for children ages 5-11, private b'nai mitzvah tutoring. We look forward to developing teen group activities and Tot Shabbats in 2020.
Our hope is that youth who participate in JCO offerings will always see themselves as an integral part of the Jewish community, remembering the friendships, ritual, values and warmth they experienced here. Youth will engage in tefilla, Hebrew language learning, Judaic learning and Havayot (experiences) that include, but not limited to celebrating festival, hikes and outdoor experiences, music, storytelling, Torah Study, as well as Tikkun Olam and values. Our families play a vital role in the lives and education of our students. Parallel programming is provided to our families which includes a parent study with Rabbi Lisa often coinciding with Youth Hebrew School, festivals together, volunteer opportunities, and a variety of speakers. Our families are encouraged to join us for services every Friday from 6-7pm.
