Kol Shalom's Sunday School program gives our kids age appropriate Jewish experiences that feature immersion in Jewish culture, history and ethics, along with a great opportunity to be with other Jewish kids and families.
Our aleph and bet classes are for ages 5-10. Classes meet two Sundays per month at the Mittelman Jewish Community Center in Portland (near Hillsdale).
Our two year mitzvah preparation program includes classes that meet one Sunday per month at the Kol Shalom Center.
Classes are small and personal. Aleph and bet classes usually have fewer than ten students while mitzvah classes usually have about three students.
Our congregation is affiliated with the Society for Humanistic Judaism. Our program aligns with the philosophy and beliefs of the movement. We emphasize the humanistic aspects of Judaism and omit supernatural practices and instruction.
You can find out more about our Sunday School program, including personnel, curriculum and costs, here.
A great opportunity to learn about Kol Shalom and Humanistic Judaism. Meet members; watch a video interview of our founder, Rabbi Sherwin Wine; schmooze; eat; and tell us something about yourself and what you're looking for.
Everyone welcome, free of charge.
We will watch a DVD of Sherwin Wine giving a lecture on the American Jewish Experience. This is the third of four lectures by Sherwin Wine on the Story of Humanistic Judaism. You are welcome to bring your own dinner to eat while we watch the DVD. Discussion of the lecture will follow at 7:00pm. There is no fee and registration is not required. All are welcome!

The venue is the picnic area on the beautiful grounds of the Goldhamer residence. Carpooling is suggested. (If the parking area in front of the house is full, cars may park across the street on Walker, with right wheels up over curb, or on the first side street on the other side of Hwy. 217 overpass).
the 3 o'clock start time is for people who'd like to swim or bob around in the Goldhamer pool or just schmooze or play before dinner at around 5 pm.
As usual, this is a potluck and you're invited to bring a dish for 8-10 people. Beverages (soft drinks, juice, beer, coffee and tea) will be furnished, in addition to plates, cups, and utensils. If you can't bring a dish, come anyway! We will laugh and play with old and new friends.
