There is a parking lot entrance off of Effie, and gate codes are required (provided upon enrollment). We may also meet around town in parks, people’s homes and cafes when it is appropriate to the lesson. Kindergarten - 8th grades. Our Mission Simcha – Focus on the joy of learning and Jewish identity Kehillah - Create a community where families will engage in and celebrate Jewish life Dor l’dor - Engage in multi-generational learning and develop family rituals and connections that reflect our individual beliefs Historia - Understand the history of the Jewish people, and the influence it has on our present and future Tarbut - Immerse in Jewish arts & culture Tzedek - Act upon our tradition’s commitment to justice, both within our community & the greater world She’elah - Encourage an open environment for questioning, while exploring a variety of perspectives of the Jewish tradition Our Approach We use the Responsive Classroom model for learning, where social interaction and process are equally as important as academic learning. We encourage positive teacher language, avoid rewards systems, and establish self-rules for the classroom. We are supporters of interfaith marriage, and any families of varying backgrounds who are choosing to explore Jewish heritage. When discussing lifecycle events we work toward reimagining rituals for the modern family, including the open support of gay marriage and single parents. While G-d is often a character in Jewish story or the center of Jewish prayers, we do not impose a theistic belief on our students. We give students options and keep ideas open, while remaining truthful to the content. Stories from the Torah are taught as mythology with historical context. Ethics are socially focused, rather than externally imposed. G-d is part of our intellectual discussion, but not our moral dictator. We examine how human beings benefit from morality, such as: Shalom Bayit (peace in the home), Tikkun Olam (Repairing the world), and Hachnasat orchim (Welcoming guests). We believe in providing all people with accessibility to Jewish history, culture and community. read less

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, dance, 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. And we believe in setting families up for success. We depart from the traditional weekly Hebrew School obligation and offer a program of twice/monthly experiences. Approximately once a month your student will attend Creative Torah Academy – our Hebrew School of the Arts. And over the course of the school year you you are invited to attend enrichment experiences–again, usually offered on a monthly basis. Mordecai Kaplan, the inspiration for the founding of Reconstructionist Judaism, is famously quoted saying, “Judaism is the evolving religious civilization of the Jewish people.” Within that statement, Kaplan captures the enduring vivacity, community and spirituality of the Jewish people and its most enduring element: adaptability. At Creative Torah Academy, we are not only teaching the next generation of Jews about the content of Jewish history, thought and peoplehood, but the methods of thought behind 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. Creative Torah Academy 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 as the prayers and rituals seem remote or Jews on the periphery and their children. Open Temple provides a place for all of the “Jew-ishly curious” to reclaim our spiritual center right where we are and apply the knowledge we possess to the knowledge we inherit. “Co-Creators” are playful, fun, quiet, bold, colorful, shy – and what we all have in common is that we are curious and willing to create something through our curiosity.

Set time for you and your child to play and bond. 2. Meet other moms for socialization and support. 3. Learn parenting tips from the instructor and have great parenting discussions. It’s wonderful time to swap ideas with other moms! 4. Learn how to incorporate Jewish traditions and rituals into our every day life for our families, through songs, discussions and play. 5.

We can repair, redirect, reframe the contours of our relationships and our lives. Join IKAR for the High Holy Days to reflect deeply, dream boldly, and discover a renewed sense of wonder and purpose. Every year, we strive to make the High Holy Days a time of deep reflection, inspiration, connection, and transformation. So much will be different this year, but those goals will be the same. This year our clergy and davening team will be streaming heart-opening, soul-stretching music and sermons from the rooftop of Shalhevet right into your living room, or garage, or backyard! All are welcome to daven and learn with our community at no charge. You will be able to tune in to our live-stream via our website’s homepage and on Facebook Live. Members: Check your email inbox for further details. See below for the schedule: Tashlikh – Wednesday, September 23 at 6 pm It’s a ritual “casting away” of our missteps, mistakes and bad patterns: all the things we don’t want to bring with us into the New Year. We will come together at the Santa Monica beach between Ocean Park Boulevard and Marine Street, social distance style, of course. Everyone must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth and stay 8 feet apart at all times. Folks with last names that begin with the letters: A-H will meet at lifeguard station 28 I-Q will meet at lifeguard station 27 R-Z will meet at lifeguard station 26 . Kol Nidre – Sunday, September 27 at 6 pm Intense and beautiful, with Hazzan Hillel Tigay’s traditional and not-so-traditional melodies and heart-stretching sermon from Rabbi Brous… it’s the best way we know to. Yom Kippur – Monday, September 28 Morning Service at 10 am Make a day out of it! Join us for a beautiful davening, and a sermon in dialogue with Rabbi Brous and the extraordinary Bryan Stevenson. Kids and teens will find services with Rabbi Tsadok and learning opportunities along the way. There’s a reason Yom Kippur is our favorite day of the year at IKAR! Yizkor at 12:30 pm In our Yom Kippur service, we will have a live virtual Yizkor service to honor and lift up the memories of our loved ones. And throughout the Ten Days of Awe we invite you to make safe, socially distanced pilgrimage to an outdoor Living Memorial garden outside the IKAR office. Yom Kippur – Afternoon Join IKAR on Yom Kippur afternoon for the Jewish Emergent Network’s “Al Chet – For the Sin of…” program. Featuring many hours of diverse, a la carte content, from racial justice sessions to movement, from text studies to music, and from high-profile guest speakers to breathwork, make your Yom Kippur afternoon unique. Content will include streaming video and audio-only sessions, for those who don’t want to be in front of a screen. See more details here. Neilah at 6:15 pm This is the home stretch. All those hours of spiritual work culminate in a no-holds-barred service that bridges heaven and earth, and we lay it all on the line. We close with light… as we lift up our havdalah candles, a final knock-your-socks-off blast of the shofar, and Halleluyah! read less

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. It's warmth. It's Chabad. 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. Shalhevet was founded in 1992 by Dr Jerry Friedman on the belief that the entire school experience should be a vehicle for moral growth and development. This goal was actualized through the establishment of a “Just Community” based on the model designed by Harvard Professor Lawrence Kohlberg.

Our Hebrew program is unique, in that all students study in one room, the "Beit Midrash", to learn to read and understand Hebrew prayers and more.

Each Bar or Bat Mitzvah student also receives several hours of private tutoring. Students in 8-10 grades attend Metivta, our high school program leading to Confirmation. Students select four quarter-long courses each year. Tenth graders prepare their own service of Confirmation. read less

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.

For over 60 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. Campers also have fun! They participate in a variety of programs and activities daily, they make new and lasting friendships and develop a wealth of new skills and interests. Our campers go home with a lifetime of cherished memories, new skills, and a positive self-image. It is truly an unforgettable experience for all! 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. https://www.campjcashalom.com/blog/summer-2019/ 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! Don’t let this opportunity pass you by! read less

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: http://www.elite-academy.org.il 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
