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.

Day Schools

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