JEMS
As the only home-based program of its kind, each JEM (Jewish Education Module) is comprised of students grouped according to both ability and grade. During half of each weekly two hour session, students connect with their Jewish heritage through games, stimulating discussion, song, dramatic role play, guest speakers and specialist instructors. During the year there are many community events, field trips and other experiential activities. Additionally, students learn how to read and speak Hebrew at their level, eventually mastering the prayers that they will chant during their Bar/Bat Mitzvah service.
