The Portuguese Jewish School has launched Portugal’s first online Jewish education program of its kind, providing basic courses in Jewish religion, culture and history to young Jews in accordance with Jewish tradition. This after-school program features 15-minute video lessons with simple and condensed messages.

Classes are available in Hebrew, English and French to meet the needs of the growing and international Jewish population. The videos can be viewed consecutively, allowing each student to advance at their own pace. When a course is successfully completed, the student may proceed to the next one.

“Studying the Torah is not at all like studying another subject. When we study Torah, we connect to our core essence of who we are, allowing our soul to grow and flourish,” says the Portuguese Jewish School’s Rabbi Eli Rosenfeld. “With this goal in mind, each week we will add a new class, full of Torah ideas, with all aspects of Judaism. The first three classes will cover Passover, the counting of the Omer and Lag Baomer, as well as Shavuot. In the following weeks, each week an additional class will be added. The classes are geared to students of all ages, from pre-Bar and Bat Mitzvah as well as for adults. In Jewish tradition we never stop learning!”
