Since September 2005, the Downtown School for Judaism has been offering public school children the opportunity to learn more about their heritage.

Working in age-appropriate groups, under the guidance of experienced teachers, the children pursue a nationally implemented curriculum of Hebrew, Bible and Jewish history and culture.

Exciting field trips round out a program that is both educational and fun.

Registration is now open!
