Congregation Olam Tikvah Religious School (OTRS) encourages our children to identify their place in the story of the Jewish people and understand the sacred space of the synagogue and its inhabitants. Based on a strong foundation of core knowledge, we help them develop confidence in their beliefs and become life-long Jewish learners, with their time at OTRS signifying only one part of their Jewish journeys. We strive to make Jewish learning accessible and engaging for each student and teach them how to be Jewish at every age and stage of their lives. Our parents recognize the importance of their involvement in school and synagogue life, and our students commit to building an atmosphere based on respect.

  • Feel proud and confident in their beliefs;
  • Develop a respect for Judaism’s rich heritage;
  • Be knowledgeable enough to feel confident walking into any synagogue; and
  • Understand the fundamental practices and beliefs of Conservative Judaism.
