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?

Programs

  • JKid Educator Interchange

    The Interchange is the gathering and collaborations of educators who live and work in Greater MetroWest. Open to educators working in the variety of Jewish Institutions: JCCs, synagogues, camps, day schools, and youth groups who seek to empower families to build our dynamic Jewish community.

 

  • Family Connectors

    Family Connectors are parents who can chat with you about how to navigate Judaism in our Greater MetroWest communities (including information about camps, synagogues, schools and other services), find Jewish family friends and create meaningful Jewish home rituals like celebrating Shabbat or an upcoming holiday. You don't have to be new to your community to contact one of these parents!
