JKid

(Children ages 6 to 11 and their families)

JKid is your source to bring Jewish learning to life for families with school age children (6-12) living in Greater MetroWest NJ. Imagine your family as the vehicle for traveling along your Jewish journey and along this journey you experience Havdalah, summer camp, synagogues, JCC sports, Shabbat dinner as a family unit. Your journey is enriched by the people you meet and interactions you have along the way, taking ownership of bringing Jewish learning to life. What does your Jewish Journey look like?
