• Ohr Chadash meets at Hillcrest Jewish Center, 183-02 Union Turnpike, Flushing 11366-1697, until early January of 2023.

November 25, 2022, from Morah Shari:  I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their loved ones. This is just a reminder that because of the holiday weekend  there are NO CLASSES this coming Sunday, November 27, 2022.  Last week we did assign roles to all the students who were present in school. Tomorrow evening, I will email everyone their respective roles which were assigned.

The students who are in our Kochavim, or youngest class, are unable to
read so they were given the part of either Maccabee warriors or Syrian Greek soldiers.

For costumes, if you have a sheet that can be draped as a toga-like
garment, that would be an appropriate costume for your child.

All grandparents, parents, and siblings are welcome to attend the
musical play, which will be performed on Sunday, December 18th,
at 11:00 AM.  This is the day of the Ohr Chadash Chanukah Celebration. 
After the play we will have our children provide
a musical performance of the holiday songs they have learned. Following
that we will have a dreidel spinning contest for each
class and then a grand prize spin-off for the school champion.

Concluding the morning will be latkes for everyone, which will be
prepared by our Giborim and Chaverim classes.

Have a wonderful Shabbat and watch for my email tomorrow evening, after
Shabbat, of the roles of the children in our Chanukah musical.

Ohr Chadash Religious School, located in Queens, New York, is an example of a new model of supplementary Jewish education.

Comprised of a consortium of three Conservative synagogues in eastern Queens, Ohr Chadash combines classroom learning with experiential programming including ongoing opportunities throughout the year for parent, grandparent and guardian education as well as outstanding Shabbat experiences for young people.

Ohr Chadash is concerned about the security of our school staff and children and has retained a security guard to be present when school is in session at each of the three partner synagogues. The guard will be there until all children have been picked up by a designated individual. 

On a beautiful warm Sunday in May, Ohr Chadash completed this special year of school. Despite the many challenges, due to the hard work of the staff of Ohr Chadash, the children managed to get a solid year of Jewish studies and lots of entertaining activities to enrich their learning. We look forward to seeing everyone on September 11, at 9:00 am at Hillcrest Jewish Center! Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
