Tree of Life Montessori

Welcome to our Community!

At Tree of Life Montessori, in Southeast Portland, Oregon, we strive to connect children and their families to Jewish traditions and culture, as well as to each other. With traditional Montessori curriculum as our structure, we celebrate holidays and honor our Jewish heritage and beliefs through weekly Shabbat rituals, thematic art projects, and community gatherings.


We are now enrolling for the 2018-2019 school year! If you are interested in the 2019-2020 school year please get in touch as well.
