Life-long learning is cherished and nurtured with appreciation for intellectual inquiry and expression in both the secular and religious arenas. This includes both formal studies for children and adults (Ohr Chadash), and teen and adult programs.

Unique within Toledo's Jewish Community is Etz Chayim's bi-weekly educational program for students in grades 1 - 9, with a special in-depth focus in Hebrew and Chumash in preparation for Bar/BatMitzvah. The Sunday program enlarges the group to include children from preschool through Confirmation, from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon. The curriculum includes Torah prayer, modern history, culture, ethics, current events, Israel, and holiday celebrations. Ohr Chadash takes place in the education wing dedicated to Rabbi and Mrs. Nehemiah Katz, Z"l

Adult Ohr Chadash is held on Sunday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00. Programs include presentations by the rabbi, guest speakers, and congregants, as well as films. A continental breakfast is served.
