As the largest synagogue in Portland, Congregation Neveh Shalom takes seriously its responsibility to be the leading provider of Jewish educational programming for all ages.
Our beloved Foundation School has served thousands of students in our community for over 50 years with early childhood education for children ages 2-5, and now provides full-time care for working families.
ShalomZone provides access to excellent and affordable after-school care for all children ages 2-5 in a nurturing and familiar environment. A bilingual Hebrew-English setting offers stimulation while arts, music, active games, and quiet corners are available.
Our K-12 education programs, known as ALIYAH, enable member families to begin and sustain their children's Jewish and Hebrew education with a variety of vibrant and innovative Sunday and weekday programs, including our Bar/Bat Mitzvah program and Tichon High School program on Wednesday evenings.
