Ohr Chayim Religious School

Ohr Chayim (Light of Our Lives) is BCC’s Family Education Program for children and their families.

Thank you for joining Beth Chayim Chadashim’s Ohr Chayim Religious School.

Ohr Chayim is a mutually supportive Jewish learning environment that welcomes families with members of all sexual orientations, gender identities, races, ethnicities, national origins, ages, abilities and religious backgrounds. Interfaith families warmly welcomed. Temple membership is not required.

We meet at Beth Chayim Chadashim, 6090 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90035. We gather to build community, learn Jewish prayers and gain familiarity with basic Hebrew, as well as Jewish text and tradition. We explore Jewish music, art and culture in all its global diversity.

We hold Jewish Holiday Paloozas to explore major events in the Jewish calendar with a fun and refreshing perspective. Ohr Chayim families are warmly welcomed to bring younger sisters/brothers/ siblings to all Paloozas. (Adult supervision required.)

For more details, contact BCC Director of Education Rae Antonoff Portnoy
