Jewish Life Programs
Jewish Journeys is an innovative approach to Jewish education that ignites children's spirits, engaging them in activities they love while connecting them with Jewish life and learning. Kids don't just learn about being Jewish--they sing it, dance it, paint it, film it, play it, as families become part of a community that celebrates Jewish life together. Jewish Journeys accompanies children from the beginning of their journey through bar or bat mitzvah and far beyond that milestone.
