For 60 years, Ottawa Modern Jewish School (OMJS) established itself in Ottawa as the non-affiliated, supplemental school offering quality Jewish education for Kindergarten to Grade 7.
As a non-affiliated supplemental school, OMJS attracts a variety of families from the Ottawa Jewish community, including non-religious/affiliated and mixed religious families.
OMJS connects children with their Jewish roots and cultural heritage by focusing on all aspects of Jewish life and culture such as Hebrew language, history and bible studies, Jewish values, and a variety of community driven activities that embrace Chesed, Tikkun Olam and Tzedekah.
OMJS celebrates the diversity of Jewish identity with all our families and students.
Enjoy the festivities that comprise holidays from A to Z from minor to major in a fun and creative way.
Patriarchs, Matriarchs, and Pirates… Jewish History at OMJS covers biblical history to the Holocaust, Israel and everything in between.
Israel and Current Events
Learn about our vibrant homeland of Israel through stories, song, dance and visits from Israeli friends.
Jewish Art and Music
From Israeli dance to family trees, OMJS uses music and art to foster a life-long love of Judaism, bring a smile to our student’s faces, and have them leave with a song in their heart.
Learning Hebrew unites all Jewish people to each other all over the world. OMJS is proud to use the Torah Aura Hebrew learning curriculum to teach those critical decoding skills and support our synagogue skills program.
