Education Programs

Congregation P’nai Or is excited to tell the Portland Jewish Community about our new children’s education program.   We have Tot Shabbat service for little ones, babies up through 6 years old, and Hebrew School class for elementary school aged children grades 1-4.  

The Tot Shabbat service includes a gratitude practice, stories, songs and prayers followed by a Kiddush with challah and grape juice.  An hour of play time follows in our wonderful indoor and outdoor park playspace.  Our Hebrew School Program focuses on teaching Hebrew language and prayer through music, Jewish holidays and values (middot) and Shabbat using a hands-on, multi-sensory approach and learning by doing.  A pre-b'nai mitzvah program is being planned.

Both Tot Shabbat and Hebrew School meet on the first and third Saturdays each month from 10:00 to 12:00.  P'nai Or is located at 9750 SW Terwilliger Blvd, Portland 97219.   No pre-registration is required for Tot Shabbat, but please email to let us know of your interest.  Registration and membership are required for Hebrew School.
