With seed funding provided by the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles, we have launched a Pooled Special Needs Trust which will provide supplemental financial support over and above government benefits, and peace of mind for you.

    • Description: Our program has been adapted for 2020-21 year in accordance with health guidelines to promote safety, meaning, and o ...read moreOur program has been adapted for 2020-21 year in accordance with health guidelines to promote safety, meaning, and our natural need for personal connection. We will continue to adapt as guidelines shift. What if creative spiritual practice was a part of Jewish education? If the paintbrush, dance shoe, sense of humor, yoga mat, and drum kit were as integral a part of Jewish education as a tallit, siddur, and Hebrew letters? Open Temple’s Creative Torah Academy is a unique Jewish Journey for students to engage in Torah, Jewish Civilization, Thought and Traditions through art, music, movement, theater, nature and spirituality. Our studio sessions, creative activities, discussion forums, guest artists and visits to locations around Venice and Los Angeles nurture the Jewish imagination and critical thinking. We believe in setting families up for success. We depart from the traditional weekly Hebrew School obligation and offer a program that blends these experiences: Monthly Home Chevruta – small group experiences in private backyards Monthly Zoom Rooms Once every other month community family experiences outdoors and around town Shabbat and holiday engagement opportunities At-home “DIY” Jewish living kits “Judaism is the evolving religious civilization of the Jewish people.” -Mordecai Kaplan, Founder, Reconstructionist Judaism The most enduring element of the Jewish people is adaptability. At CTA, we not only teach the next generation of Jews about the content of Jewish history, thought and peoplehood, but methods that drive Jewish adaptation. The disciplines of art and spirituality are the lenses through which we refract the “hidden Jewish light” that the Torah teaches us was created on the first day of creation, and collectively explore what is revealed through this “bending” of tradition. CTA brings the Open Temple methodology of “performance art ritual” — engaging prompts, contemporary conflicts, creative departures from text and tradition — into the “Hebrew School” classroom, where the classroom is transformed into an atelier, dance and yoga studio, and black box theatre. Our students are young people who thrive in the creative and individualistic curriculum, who think for themselves and enjoy sharing their individuality with others to create something larger together. Our students are the children of intermarried couples, assimilated Jews, Jews without Jewish education, or Jews with too much Jewish education, Jews who feel disenfranchised or alienated from Jewish life or Jews on the periphery and their children. Open Temple provides a place for all of the “Jew-ly curious” to reclaim our spiritual center right where we are and apply the knowledge we possess to the knowledge we inherit. Together. read less

Students attend a core class that covers a specific topic for each grade. Students discuss anti-Semitism, Bioethics, cults, the Holocaust, modern Jewish heroes and other relevant issues in terms of the Jewish ethical, moral and legal response according to Jewish law. Through discussions about current events in Israel, they gain a better understanding of Israeli government and politics. They also have a choice of electives, including self-defense, ceramics, scrapbooking, Jewish videos and Judaism through science fiction and fantasy, Bible studies, Israeli dancing, Jewish cooking, drama and more. Dinner seminars are a highlight of the Confirmation Program. Parents are invited to join students to hear various speakers provide valuable information about current topics. The 10th grade students lead Shavuot Services at which time they are confirmed. Temple Etz Chaim Religious School was selected to be one of five religious schools for the southern California region to pilot the curriculum called “Facing History and Ourselves.” The subject matter is an in depth exploration into the Holocaust and human behavior. The Post Confirmation Program (11-12) provides students with an opportunity to continue their Jewish education while remaining involved in synagogue life. Students study Torah, discuss current events and explore ethical issues with Rabbi Spiegel. The format of the class allows students to express themselves candidly in a non-judgmental environment. The program was originally conceived after students leaving the Confirmation Program asked how they could continue their studies at Temple Etz Chaim. read less

At Congregation Or Ami, we believe that Jewish education should nurture our students and leave them with a love of Judaism, a love of Congregation Or Ami as their synagogue and second home, and an understanding and appreciation for why Judaism and Or Ami are sacred in their lives. We seek to foster within each child in Kesher the knowledge, skills, and attitude needed: To act ethically in daily life based on Jewish values; To observe Jewish rituals at home and in the synagogue in meaningful ways; To participate comfortably in Shabbat and Holy Day services; and To appreciate the centuries of Jewish history, literature, and civilization contributing to the strength and survival of the Jewish people and Israel. In Kesher, Hebrew and Judaica studies are integrated, yet reading and chanting Hebrew prayers are taught separately. Each session includes community building, interactive learning about Judaism, Hebrew language study (or Hebrew through movement for younger grades), and t’filah (creative prayer experiences). read less

In this series, we take a deep dive into one Mitzvah at a time, exploring the traditional teachings about that mitzvah and applying the concept to our own lives. In this series on lashon hara (the laws of speech), we will use text study, discussion, and examples from students lives to explore the Jewish ideal of lashon hara, the practice of avoiding negative speech. How does Judaism teach us to speak, what do we do with negativity, and when and how can we say things which are… not exactly positive? Week 1: What is lashon hara? Lashon Hara is more than just “gossip,” it is negative speech. We will explore the definition of this term, learn about some examples from the Torah, and think about examples in our own lives, and consider the impact lashon hara can have. Week 2: So what can you say? We are surrounded by negative speech in movies, news, and our lives. In this session we will look at some contemporary examples, both from media and our lives, and evaluate them in terms of the 7 conditions necessary for relating negative information. Week 3: So what can I say? In this session, we will explore Jewish teachings on what one can say in place of lashon hara, and consider how these teachings might play out in scenarios from students’ lives. This session will equip students with alternatives to saying lashon hara. We will also act out the story of “Salty Soup” (a classic chofetz chayyim story), exploring it dramatically and also discussing its lesson. This will give students a “deep dive” into one classic and memorable example of lashon hara. read less

    • Description: Learn More about the Teen Talk App from Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Interested in joining the Teen Talk App + L ...read moreLearn More about the Teen Talk App from Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Interested in joining the Teen Talk App + LAJTI Cohort? Applications are due by Friday, December 31. Teen Talk App provides a free, anonymous, safe space for teens to request support from trained peers and learns from others with similar experiences. The free app is available to download on iOS and Android devices for teen users 13-19 years old who can post 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Posts range from a bad breakup or first panic attack to self-harm, suicidal ideation, and child abuse or sexual assault. Posts can only be responded to by our trained volunteer Teen Advisors who are supervised during app hours (nightly 5:00-10:00 PM PT) by licensed mental health professionals. Training Program Prior to signing up for shifts throughout the month, Teen Advisors undergo an extensive application and interview process as well as a 50-hour training. With a focus on understanding values and bias, the Teen Talk App training exposes teens to the variety of experiences they will encounter on the app. Teens learn reflective communication skills, crisis intervention, and how to recognize the signs of mental health struggles. Teen Advisors are trained to provide a nonjudgmental space for teens to vent and feel seen by their peers. Teen Advisors learn coping skills throughout their training to support users and utilize in their own lives. Through the Teen Talk App training, volunteers are empowered to become mental health ambassadors off the app as well. Our advisors often become leaders in spreading awareness and support with their school, families, and communities. In addition, the framework of the training is infused with Jewish values. Commitment Once a teen completes the 50-hour training, they must commit to two shifts per month for at least one year. These shifts are two hours long and done remotely from home via the Teen Talk App dashboard that is utilized by all Teen Advisors and Supervisors. In addition, teens must attend one Continued Education session per quarter. These sessions are facilitated by Teen Talk App Staff or guest speakers to further enhance teens’ knowledge around the topics discussed on the app. In addition to the continued education, there will be two gatherings for the Teen Talk App + LAJTI Cohort, which are required. These gatherings are focused on continuing education and community building. If you have any questions about the Teen Talk App + LAJTI Cohort, please reach out to [email protected]. The Teen Talk App + LAJTI Cohort is offered in partnership with Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles. Los Angeles Jewish Teen Initiative (LAJTI) is co-funded by The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles and the Jim Joseph Foundation, with seed funding provided by the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles. read less

The webinar, geared toward parents and educators of Jewish preteens and teens, will focus on how to embolden adolescents to strengthen their personal wellbeing (shleimut), respectful relationships (hesed), and pursuit of justice (tzedek)—while they take healthy risks and experience the world. Today’s preteens and teens are facing more than the usual challenges, whether they are feeling the pent-up need to push the boundaries around drugs, alcohol, and sex, or struggling with anxieties as they emerge from social isolation. Dr. Shatkin brings to the discussion an evolutionary understanding of why teens are hard-wired to take risks, coupled with the latest research on how the teen brain regulates, attunes, and heals. His research-based approach offers interventions that are proven to foster safe habits and healthy risk-taking, so that the preteens and teens in your life emerge from this period healthy, thriving, and resilient. Back by popular demand after speaking at Moving Traditions’ June convening that informed the white paper, Family Education @ B-Mitzvah, Dr. Shatkin will share insights from his research-based book, Born to Be Wild, which sheds new light on why young people take risks —and offers solutions that work for parents and teachers. We will connect Shatkin’s wisdom to the Jewish values that Moving Traditions has found can help preteens and teens to thrive. This free event is geared toward parents, educators, and all those who guide Jewish preteens and teens, and all are welcome. read less

Bnai Mitzvah 2Your child will study with our two Rabbis, Rabbi Stan and Rabbi Laura, every Sunday morning for the school year. It is all taught through film (no books, no homework) and the kids really enjoy the learning process! For the first few months, the students will watch movies of the most important stories in the Torah, portrayed by some of the finest actors in the world. When we enter our Holocaust section, they will watch documentary films about the Holocaust as seen through the eyes of kids who are approximately their age; our next section is following the story of the founding of the modern state of Israel, including the ongoing struggles with its Palestinian citizens. Toward the end of the year they will watch a documentary about social and moral issues young teenagers have to face. In addition to these Sunday classes, she/he will learn to read Hebrew with a gentle and inspiring Hebrew tutor in private weekly sessions in your home. They will also learn to understand, pray and chant the basic prayers of Judaism, as well as their Torah (and perhaps Haftarah) portions. There is (of course!) homework in this part of the program. Then, approximately three months prior to their service, they will come for an hour either before or after class on Sundays to practice with the rabbis, along with perhaps one or two other students, so that they become comfortable leading the service and standing in front of others. Rabbi Stan or Rabbi Laura will conduct your B’nai Mitzvah service, at your unique date and location. The service can be adapted by you and our rabbis to reflect your family’s Jewish practice and to highlight your child’s accomplishments. You may use the B’nai Horin Shabbat prayerbooks, or you may create your own, incorporating all the prayers and blessings that will be used during the service. This experience has proved over decades to instill joy in the families who participate and leave a lasting connection to our Jewish heritage and relevance to the issues in contemporary life. Want to hear what some parents say? “We really appreciate and rave to everyone how much our son enjoys his Jewish experience with you. It is hard to believe that the same kid who used to lash out in tears describing going to his other Sunday school as “worse than being in a pit with snakes and spiders doing homework all day” (and he really hates spiders) to happily joyfully willing to go and telling people who ask – “I like it a lot.” “Thank you for understanding the times of today and being willing to make the experience a rich, relatable, pertinent, expansive, and enjoyable one.” “I’m writing because my experience with you and your program for both our son and our daughter has really opened my eyes to an approach to Judaism and religion that feels so much more organic, authentic, accessible, and inclusive. I cannot begin to tell you how many people approached me after to tell me how much they loved how you conducted the service and several have asked me how to become part of your program.” “We are still basking! Thank you so much for the most wonderful, amazing, lovely bat mitzvah ceremony, which was above and beyond anything I ever imagined. So many guests have told me how for the first time they could understand everything said and done…” “Wish there were better words than “thank you,” since they seem so pedestrian compared to what you did for us. I can’t tell you how many of our friends told us this was easily the most beautiful service they’d ever been to. (Several of them added, “I know people always SAY that, but this time it’s true.”) Everyone talked about how musical it was, how personal, how relaxed and upbeat.” “I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen a bat/r mitzvah child look as happy as our daughter did during the entire service. She clearly felt prepared and ready and like it was something to enjoy and not something to fear–and I give you and her wonderful tutor Rina all the credit for that.” “You really make the whole process of having a bat mitzvah meaningful and spiritual and so wonderful. I honestly enjoyed the service so much more than the party! The program at B’nai Horin makes it manageable for every child, regardless of level, and each kid feels successful. I feel lucky that my three kids have all been able to work with you and that I have had the pleasure to know you. You are so warm and genuine and kind and loving. Thank you.” And what some kids have to say? (from a bat mitzvah speech) Shabbat Shalom. Thank you everyone for coming today. “First of all, I’d like to thank Rabbi Laura for inspiring me every week and pointing out new aspects of every prayer. Thank you for teaching me the meaning of a Bat Mitzvah, how to look at it in many ways, and connect the prayer, rather than just read it. I never got bored of the enthusiasm you brought to class. You truly made my experience valuable and memorable. I’d also like to thank Rabbi Stan for helping me understand Jewish history and leading me on a spiritual path to my bat mitzvah. You created a modern twist on all the stories of the Torah and captivated the class’ attention with your relevant meanings” (thank you from a happy former bat mitzvah student) “Well, I’m emailing you because its exactly 1 year since my bat mitzvah. I wanted to say thank you again and I would also like to visit you and Rabbi Stan soon because I miss seeing you both. I miss the moments we used to have before class when we were practicing for my bat mitzvah and I miss seeing you both every Sunday (even if it was early in the morning). I just wanted to tell you I was and still am so thankful to have had you both to guide me through becoming a bat mitzvah and teaching me various prayers and stuff about Judaism. Also for being people I could look up to and know that I could ask advice from both you and Rabbi Stan. I had such a fun time with you and like I said at my bat mitzvah, i feel like I’ve known you for so much longer because of our deep connection. Thank you again, and I hope to see you and Rabbi Stan soon.” We could go on and on – but we’d love to have your younger brothers and sisters – or your family friends – experience this for themselves! We hope to see you, and your friends, at The Riddick Center. read less

Generally speaking, however, we offer the following: Various levels of Hebrew language, Israeli spirit and B'nai/B'not Mitzvah classes, Israeli innovation, Enrichment courses (TLV Graffiti arts & culture, Israeli history through song, animation, book club for adults, Israeli women & song, smartphone photography, cooking & baking, creative thinking, Israeli pop culture, personal development, real-life problem-solving for children, and more), and Jewish heroism. You may contact Shlomit Ovadia with any questions you may have at [email protected]. The fall semester begins the second week of September, and the dates vary for each class. We have classes whose times are more friendly to those living on Eastern time vs Pacific time, and alternating schedules of the same classes to accommodate everyone. Classes run for different lengths of time. Some courses are 5 classes whereas others are 25; this gives people the opportunity to register themselves or their children without having to commit to a large volume of classes and/or if they cannot afford it.

Our curriculum revolves around guiding the students to become knowledgeable and committed American Jews. The religious school trains its students to successfully participate in Bar/Bat Mitzvah services, however, our view is that the students' Jewish education does not end with Bar/Bat Mitzvah; but continues into their adult life. For this reason, we promote family educational programs whenever possible, and concentrate on areas that are relevant to the age and level of the child, rather than attempting to teach them “everything” prior to Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

The AAE ECC offers a loving, warm and welcoming environment where children are valued for their individuality. We take our inspiration from many sources, primarily Jewish teachings and the Reggio Emilia curriculum philosophy, within a safe, creative and stimulating setting. The children's Jewish experiences are based upon the joy of celebration, song, ritual, and the important connection between the community and the family. The children develop a sense of pride in and a love for their Jewish heritage and the special ways we celebrate Judaism as part of Jewish family life. Every child is unique, with their own interests, learning style, growth timetable, and culture. Learning takes place through our developmentally-based program that values the child's innate curiosity, ability and creativity, as teachers help to shape the curriculum around the children's ideas. When given the time, space, and opportunity to interact in a meaningful environment, a child will construct new ideas through investigation and research in order to link them to existing knowledge. These opportunities enable children to develop a strong sense of community, self-reliance, and are given the foundation for critical thinking necessary throughout life. Extended Hours 7:30am-6pm.

The emphasis is completely on the positive and on the experiential. From the Alef-Bet to the ABC's; the weekly Torah portion to Jewish ethics; subjects are not merely taught in the classroom, but are animated and brought vividly to life - with music, with dance, with stories. Likewise, whether it's a holiday event, a Friday night dinner or a school graduation, there is a special spirit in the air that embraces child and parent alike. This school spiritually feeds the community, and vice versa. In the words of Director Renee Hutchings, Beyond the high level of professionalism we aspire to, there is that abstract dimension that endears this program to all involved. That dimension is love.

We seek a Judaism that promotes innovation that is deeply rooted in Jewish tradition, while reflecting the understandings and spiritual yearnings of contemporary Jews. In the Jewish Experience center, we work to create a child-centered, experiential approach to education which inspires children with the joy of all things Jewish: Torah, prayer, Jewish living skills, celebrations, the arts, history, culture, ethics, values and Hebrew . We have a variety of programs, including a monthly family Shabbat dinner and service, the Outdoor Jewish Experience and Kehillat Israel Tzedakah Teens, a teen philanthropy group which gives approximately $20,000 in grants each year.

The Cheder grew out of a social and religious commitment to provide the foundation of an all-encompassing Torah and Chabad Chassidic education to every Jewish child. The school is referred to affectionately as “The Cheder.” The Cheder has served the Chabad Chassidic Orthodox Jewish community since its founding in 1993. The Cheder was founded as, and remains to this day, the only Chabad Chassidic elementary boy’s school of its kind on the West Coast of the United States. As such, its responsibility to develop Jews as leaders and teachers, regardless of future occupations, in the community to spread the Chassidic message and practice is the major focus of the Cheder. Today it serves over 350 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The Cheder is conveniently located to serve the Greater Los Angeles Jewish community as well as students from nearby communities outside the metropolitan Los Angeles area. read less

The goals of Shalhevet School are to promote the values of our Jewish heritage, the ideals of American democracy and a passionate support for the welfare of the State of Israel, within an environment that encourages critical and creative thought.

Over a thousand students have passed through our hallways and have gone on to study at some of the finest universities in the world, as well as many of the top Yeshivot and programs of study in Israel.

Knowing that all children develop at their own pace, we support students individually, to help them develop these skills, at the appropriate time for each child.

We provide a positive, nurturing, safe environment in which children are encouraged to explore their feelings and learn about the world around them. A lifelong love of learning is fostered through child-centered programming including music, art, cooking, science, yoga, literature, imaginary play, and Jewish values. We celebrate many Jewish and secular holidays throughout the school year. Shabbat is a particularly special celebration each week, both in class and in the synagogue with our rabbis and cantors. We strive for each child to become successful in both individual pursuits and group social situations so that when they move on from the Temple Judea ECC, they are confident, capable, and prepared for Kindergarten. Children are eligible for Nursery School if they turn 2 years old by September 1st for our Fall semester, or by the first day of the semester for our Spring or Summer sessions. If the age requirement is met, parents can decide, with the guidance of the ECC administration, when children should begin Nursery School. We recommend placing children in a Parenting Center Transition class the semester preceding Nursery School. For more information, please contact our ECC Director, Lisa Whitman.

We believe children are natural learners, soaking up the world around them like sponges. We share the image of children as being creative, resourceful, powerful and capable human beings. Our learning environment invites their curiosity and the excitement of discovery in the areas of: art, science, math, dramatic play, large and small motor activities, enhanced language development and music. We encourage children to explore, touch and experience the world around them. We place an emphasis on the whole child and respect that all children learn in different ways. Our integrated approach pays attention to the young child’s physical skill development, self-expression, socialization, coping strategies, cognitive learning, as well as his or her emotional adjustment and well-being. You won’t see perfect crafts or any emphasis on the finished product. Learning happens during the struggle, frustration and truly delightful discoveries throughout the day.

The chapters in the states focus on the core values of the Israeli Scouts Movement in Israel as well as helping the youth develop and maintain a strong Israeli and Jewish identity. “Shevet Chen” in the San Fernando Valley stands as the largest chapter of the Tzofim in North America, with over 200 participants. Shevet Chen reaches youth ages 9-18, in grades 3-12, and provides their participants beyond a social experience; participants of gain a higher understanding of the meaning of their Jewish heritage and strengthen their bond with Israel, thereby fostering and sustaining a strong Israeli and Jewish identity. Shevet Chen conducts meaningful events and activities throughout the year. Conducted mainly in Hebrew, activities take place once a week and are aimed at the development of our youth’s intellect, social skills, and morals through activities tailored for specific age groups.

Children happily absorb the ideals of the Habonim Dror youth movement: sharing, inclusiveness, creativity and responsibility to the community in both the year-round activities and at sleep-away camp in the summer. Our year round programming focuses on tikkun olam, Jewish identity and Israel education. Each month, kids from all around Los Angeles gather to celebrate Jewish Holidays, engage in tikkun olam projects and just have fun! Children gain a complete summer camp experience of recreation and informal learning in an Israeli kibbutz-style atmosphere at our lake-front site in Big Bear, CA. Activities include archery, kayaking, swimming, sports, hiking, music, dance, arts and crafts. Shabbat is celebrated with special activities, and Hebrew is introduced into everyday camp life. Our campers return year after year, developing leadership qualities and a love of Israel.

Check the website for more dates. For almost 70 years, Camp JCA Shalom has been the “Camp for All Seasons.” Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, thousands of campers and staff experience the magic of Camp JCA Shalom. Camp’s vision of Tikkun Olam – creating a better world – is fulfilled through a positive Jewish living experience in the natural setting of the Shalom Institute. In our warm and supportive environment, campers experience living, learning, and playing in a group setting that encourages personal growth and self-discovery. We will create our Camp JCA magic in the beautiful Angeles National Forest at Gold Creek Center! Camp staff has been thorough and tenacious in search of the best location and Gold Creek Center is ideal for us. The beautiful, natural setting has the camp vibe we are used to. We will be able to maintain our cabin-centered approach to the camp experience with cabin-like housing units (that are air-conditioned and have attached bathrooms and showers!). Campers will experience the same Camp JCA Shalom culture and community that leads to making great friendships and experiencing life-changing moments. Camp remains a safe place for your child to grow and learn and have fun. The campus is secure on a private mountain road and we will not be sharing the site with another group as in most of the other locations that were considered. We will have security on-site as we did in Malibu. Gold Creek Center is beautifully tucked away at the foot of the magnificent mountains of the Angeles National Forest, just 20-30 minutes from the heart of the San Fernando Valley, Simi Valley, and Santa Clarita and less than 45 minutes from the Conejo Valley and West Los Angeles. The 270+ acres include a pool, ball fields, basketball courts (indoor and outdoor), air-conditioned indoor program spaces, and the activities and fun you are used to from camp in Malibu. The site allows us to do the activities our campers love – gaga, ropes course, arts and crafts (tie-dye!), “Jamba Jews” bike blenders, archery, gardening, water activities, pioneer living, outdoor cooking, nature walks, beach trips, overnights, mountain biking, horse and animal experiences, Israeli dance and Israel programming, song sessions, Shabbat services, and so much more! Our chef Jorge and his kitchen staff will be with us all summer, along with Robbo and our top-notch counselors and specialists. 8955 Gold Creek Rd, Sylmar, CA 91342 read less

On GIVE, we visit an array of chesed organizations and experience firsthand what it means to be a responsible member of the Jewish people by helping those in need. From soup kitchens to medical clowning, greeting a Nefesh B’Nefesh flight to painting kindergartens in underprivileged communities, GIVErs are able to contribute to the many needs of those Jews living in Israel. While GIVE’s primary focus is volunteer work, touring and exposure to the land of Israel continues to be a major piece of the summer. When not engaged in chesed activities, GIVE takes you to many of the major tourist attractions throughout Israel. Some highlights include spending Shabbat in Tzfat, banana boating on the Kineret, hiking in the Judean desert and the Golan, mountain rappelling and floating in the Dead Sea. GIVE is an opportunity for girls to give back some of the good that they have received in their lives to those less fortunate. For an amazing summer that allows you to experience tangible Judaism in an incredibly exciting environment, while making friends from all over, sign up for NCSY’s GIVE!

The program, designed for academically-motivated Jewish students spanning all levels of observance and academic interests, is bolstered by a strong support network comprised of Jewish Agency professionals who continually interface with Elite Academy students and their parents. Elite Scholars receive full room and board, medical insurance, two free flights -- one each at the beginning and at the end of this 3 year program -- , small monthly stipends, and budgets for travel within Israel and maintaining telephone contact with their parents. In return, they are required to take their studies seriously, achieve the educational objectives of the Academy, and abide by its rules. After 14 years, over 90 percent of Elite Academy students have graduated from their adopted school and have received an Israeli Matriculation (Bagrut) that is recognized by the top universities and colleges worldwide. Because Naaleh is located outside of Los Angeles, it is not a BJE-accredited school. Email: [email protected]; Phone: 972-2-6441145; Website: https://www.naale-elite-academy.com/en/ read less

Grab your passport and get ready to take off on your very own Jewish adventure with Westside JCC’s JExplorers program! Our goal for each of our explorers (students) is to inspire their curiosity in a fun, interactive, and informal environment. Highly trained navigators (teachers) lead learning expeditions where our explorers discover Judaism through a wide cultural lens. Using our unique ‘exploriential’ teaching method, students (and parents!) learn about Jewish holidays and traditions, ethics and values, heritage, history, food, dance, music, art, basic Hebrew concepts and more! Parents and families also participate through field trips with their child and holiday celebrations. Each cohort meets three times a month; two weekdays and one Sunday totaling seven hours each month. The weekday meetings will focus on the monthly themes (i.e. nature (teva), community (kehila), and repairing the world (tikkun olam), etc…). Sunday will be ‘exploration day’ as our explorers and their parents join us for exciting field trips connected to the learning themes for each month (i.e. tree people hike, cooking class, Pico-Robertson treasure hunt etc…). read less

It is through play that our children reflect and refine those physical, cognitive, social/emotional and language building areas which contribute to the total development of the child. At Gindi Maimonides Academy, we recognize that parents are our children’s first teachers. It is only through this partnership that we will create a community of caring, respect, and growth, essential to our children’s success. To this end, consistent and clear communication with our parents represents the primary bridge between home and school– and family involvement within our Early Childhood Department is always encouraged and appreciated. The Early Childhood Department at Gindi Maimonides Academy is built on a core belief that, in order for our children to succeed, we must first create an environment of unconditional love and respect. We value the individuality of our children and provide developmentally appropriate experiences to help them grow and learn. We take pride in building a safe, nurturing environment. read less
