Your Jewish Journey. Together.
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.
The program year begins September 2018 and concludes May 2019.
Each cohort meets three times a month; two week days and one Sunday totaling seven hours each month. The week day 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…).
*must be turning 5 by January 1.
