Information for Parents

We believe learning cannot begin too early nor end too late. From our tiniest people attending the TBO Preschool to Post Confirmation class, Temple Beth Or offers creative, thought-provoking, and inspiring learning opportunities for all.

The Religious School serves students of our families from four-years old through 12th grade. Milestones include Consecration, B’nai Mitzvah, Confirmation, and Post Confirmation. We have a vibrant Madrichim (teacher assistants) program for teenagers. The goals of the school are the deepening  of the Jewish  experience and knowledge of Judaism in order to strengthen faith in God, love of Torah, and identification with the Jewish people as a community. Our curriculum focuses on inspiring students to connect to Jewish history, tradition, and ritual as they develop their individual identities.

Enrichment programs such as art, music, dance, guest speakers, field trips, and family education days contribute to a vibrant and joyful Jewish world for our students. With the help of our volunteer committee, our school is truly a “family experience.”  Our enrollment is 280 students and growing.

Special programs include:

  • High Holiday services led by our students
  • All school and community Mitzvah Day
  • Visit to the Richmond, Va. Holocaust Museum
  • Family education series for grades Kindergarten-6th
  • Family Shabbat services throughout the year
  • Confirmation class weekend trip
  • Quality art program
  • Unique programming for Purim, Passover and Yom Ha’Atzmaut
