JAS @ the J
The JCC offers a daily Judaics After-School (JAS) program exclusively for Jewish children attending the Eleanor Kolitz Hebrew Language Academy (EKHLA). This supplemental Jewish studies program will provide students education in the areas of Jewish history, culture, values, rituals, and texts.
JAS offers an experiential learning curriculum to meet the needs of Jewish families across a broad range of religious observance. Its flexibility and adaptability will fit the time constraint of a daily fifty-minute lesson, five days a week. The curriculum includes a variety of stories, Jewish sources, prayers, and blessings, which are age-appropriate, further developing the child’s Jewish identity. JAS faculty is drawn from a variety of backgrounds and educational experience with Jewish Day Schools, religious schools, and Jewish communal agencies.
JAS meets Monday-Friday, from 3-3:50pm. A Kabbalat Shabbat will be held each Friday at 3:30pm, with other holiday celebrations occurring throughout the year.
