havurah: hands-on jewish education
children pre-k to 2nd grade

On Saturday afternoons, our community gathers on the second floor of the JCC for Havurah. In this environment, children discover themselves through deep conversations about God and hands-on expressions of Jewish values, rituals, and culture.

Philosophy & Mission

Our mission is to provide children with the means to develop their own unique Jewish identities. We strive to create a place where children feel comfortable asking questions and being themselves, where learners of all types are welcome and included. To meet these goals, teachers work collaboratively with children to create personalized experiences that spark wonder and creativity, build confidence, and create meaningful connections between people. Families are partners in the work that we do, joining with children and teachers to celebrate Jewish life and tradition.
