Jewish Enrichment Center

THE STORY:

This year at an education conference, when Rabbi Rebecca Milder presented work from Enrichment Center children showing their progression from 1st grade through 5th grade, the leadership of the conference – Jewish Studies and Education professors from around the country – had a message: “Nowhere else in the country are Jewish children making such deep, personalized Jewish connections through their school,” a professor said, while the other academics agreed. Conference participants, too, were astounded by the depth of children’s ideas, their genuine grappling with Torah, and the way each child’s unique voice spoke clearly through their projects. What an affirmation that the Jewish Enrichment Center is at the forefront of child-driven Jewish learning on Sundays and afterschool.

This program wouldn’t be possible without the support of the families, the community, and generous grants. This year, we have again been challenged by a funder to raise $18,000 with new or additional contributions in order to receive a double match from the funder. We ask that you show your support for the extraordinary work of the Jewish Enrichment Center by making a financial contribution towards that goal.

Every day at the Jewish Enrichment Center, children demonstrate their amazing capacity to wrestle with complex ideas and be compassionate Jewish human beings. Please support them so that our children can continue on their Jewish journey for years to come.
