Jewish Education

Knowledge Is Everything.

Nourishing Jewish minds. 

As we grow in Jewish knowledge, we become more curious and engaged members of our family and our community. Here at Federation, we believe that investing in Jewish education—for every age and stage – in our community is a direct investment in our future.

Early Childhood Programs

Our community provides a multitude of Early Childhood programs through synagogues and our JCCs. Contact the local Jewish Community Center in your area or search our synagogue directory for early childhood programs.

GMW Right Start

We’re excited to announce that GMW Right Start has expanded, providing a gift voucher toward the cost of tuition for families enrolling a child for the first time at any age level pre-K and below in a Jewish early childhood program. It’s a gift of education, community, and belonging for your whole family!

Day Schools

Greater MetroWest offers four world-class Jewish day schools that are now affordable for virtually every family in our community.

Professional Development for Early Childhood Teachers

In partnership with the Jewish Paradigm Project, the Jewish Education Project, and Jewish Federations across North America, we provide high quality professional development for early childhood educators at all stages in their careers.

Professional Development for Day School Teachers
