Ner Shalom is proud to co-sponsor the Community School for Jewish Learning - known as "J School" - alongside B'nai Israel Jewish Center of Petaluma. By joining together, we have built an exciting, engaging and diverse student body and parent community. We offer our children a strong peer group, critical mass in their classes, fun, friendship, Hebrew, history, art, cooking, nature and tzedakah.
Hours and Schedule
In the 2017-2018 School Year, classes meet during the fall semester at Ner Shalom, 85 La Plaza in Cotati. During the spring semester, J School will meet at B'nai Israel Jewish Center, 740 Western Avenue in Petaluma. All K-7th grade students meet on Sundays from 9:00 to 11:30. The 5th-7th graders stay for a pizza lunch and an extra hour of study. There is also a twice-monthly "Torah Lishmah" class taught by Reb Irwin and Rabbi Ted for teens.
