Jewish Journeys Project -JJP

We welcome all returning and new students in Grades 3rd- 5th graders!   We are staying online this winter/spring as we await a full-return, hopefully in September 2021.  We are excited about the wonderful courses we are offering this winter/spring! 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 Class
     
    We are offering one core class for our 4-6 grade students. We are offering a number of sections during the week; choose the section that works best with your child’s schedule.

    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.
