Berkeley-Oakland Midrasha provides Jewish learning to 8th-12th grade students in Alameda and western Contra Costa counties in a supplementary setting. It offers a broad range of dynamic educational opportunities - formal and informal - designed to support a diverse community. Classes run the gamut of Jewish topics - from social justice and art to Talmud and philosophy to Jewish music, food, and media. All our programs take place in the context of a loving safe space for teens.



Sundays, 3:30-6:00pm @ Netivot Shalom


Teens take two classes (a grade level "core" class + an elective) and take part in other campus programming. Classes encourage personal engagement with Jewish identity, ethics, culture, and thought.

Teens celebrate shabbat together along with teens from Contra Costa Midrasha, Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.
