At ShalomBASE, kids and families will

  • Have fun!!
  • Find their unique path to a life enriched with Jewish meaning
  • Build meaningful relationships with each other, our nurturing staff, the Temple Ohabei Shalom Community, and our amazing Coolidge Corner neighborhood
  • Strengthen connections to Jewish culture, history, and traditions, enriching every individual’s sense of belonging within the Jewish community
  • Participate in an engaging and immersive curriculum, including Hebrew, Shabbat, Holidays, Jewish texts and values, and more, that builds upon a child’s natural curiosity, emphasizes choice, and empowers children to be the masters of their own learning.

Our goal at ShalomBASE is to make Judaism fun, accessible, and a naturally integrated part of children’s lives. We will weave Hebrew, Jewish customs, and spirituality into all the things kids enjoy – art, music, sports, and more! After a rigorous day of academics at school, we strive to be a program of enrichment, not simply an extension of their school day; opportunities for movement and rest, as well as creativity and independent play, round out your child’s afternoon at ShalomBASE.

Our Mission: ShalomBASE is a vibrant, inclusive Jewish community afterschool program where children experience the joy of Judaism through engaging activities and meaningful relationships. The ShalomBASE curriculum fosters a sense of belonging and integrates Jewish culture, values, and traditions in a fun and nurturing environment, inspiring participants to explore together how Judaism can enrich our lives.

Our Vision: ShalomBASE empowers each child and family to explore their own Judaism, discovering their unique journey in values and traditions. With dedicated staff and a child-led environment, we strengthen our connection to Jewish identity, history, and culture, ensuring that every individual feels valued and embraced within our Temple Ohabei Shalom community.
