Our Mission 

Imagine a School where kids don't want to miss a day. They come in with a smile and leave humming a catchy new song. Walking through the halls, you can hear the sounds of lively discussion, of singing, laughter and friendship. Imagine a child who feels the warmth and spirit of Judaism.

Curriculum

We're impressed with our curriculum, now it's your turn!
We hope to engage your child's sense of identity by capturing his/her imagination and attention. So, we put lot of effort into providing our students with substantive lessons and a positive atmosphere.

The lessons are multi-sensory and hands-on, ensuring that the students truly experience what the are being taught. The lessons are structured with discussion-starters, to create a lively, interactive classroom experience. Role-playing, arts & crafts and songs are incorporated into the lessons to help make them even more enjoyable. The information truly becomes the student's own.

Our program will give your child a solid foundation in the fundamentals of Judaism and will instill in your child the knowledge, beauty and values of our heritage.  

Our curriculum consists of the following:

Holidays and Shabbat

Hands-on experiences prior to each Jewish holiday from Rosh - Hashana and the High Holidays through the holiday of Shavuot provide our students with a deeper understanding of each holiday its tradition and customs
Jewish Values:

"Be the best YOU" and Kindness and respect the ALL" are fundamentals in Jewish living and the JKids Discovery Program lessons bring these ideas to life and provide students with the tools to apply them to their daily routines. They understand that our religion is nased on a G‑d given set of values and morals and that the "norm" is not always in the right.
