Jewish Journeys Project -JJP

We welcome all returning and new students in Grades 3rd- 5th graders!   We are staying online this fall as the JCC community figures out how best to utilize the space in our building when it becomes possible to return.  We are excited about the wonderful new courses we are offering this fall! We are now welcoming all children, New York city-based and those who are living elsewhere.

Children in Grades l and 2 who would have been eligible to enroll in Havurah are welcome to join us this fall! Please click here for all details for 1st and 2nd grade Havurah students this fall.

For students in Grades 3-5, we are offering a JJP All – Access Pass. Each semester it will include:

  • One weekly class for all students
  • 60 minutes of Hebrew Homepage online; your child can take 60 minutes of Hebrew or split the time between Hebrew and a JJConnect class
  • One Sunday intensive
  • Core Classes
     
    We are streamlining JJP this fall and have developed two core classes; one for 3rd graders and the other for fourth and fifth graders. We are offering a number of sections during the week; choose the section that works best with your child’s schedule.

    Our First Family: The Stories in the Book of Genesis                                                         3rd Grade

    Are We There Yet: 40 Years of Trekking, Tribes, and a Talking Donkey                         4th-5th Grade

    We will be mailing home a box of materials full of wonderful items and art supplies for each student to use for hands-on projects that will accompany each session of the above classes. 

    Intensives

    We will be offering a wonderful selection of monthly intensives. Each intensive meets for four sessions this fall.   Each student can pick one intensive to begin with at registration. After our initial registration, if there are spaces available in a second intensive that children would like to participate they will be to join those as well. Intensives include:

    • Bubbie’s Kitchen
    • JBrick: Building Israel in LEGO
    • JJP Book Club
    • JJP Justice, Justice You Shall Make
    • Jewish History in Minecraft
    • Dungeon and Dreidels:Tall Tales of the Torah
    • Jewish Arts Studio: The Jewish Art of Papercutting
