JYC (Jewish Youth Connection)

The Hebrew School with HEART

For the past twenty-five years, KJ has been the address for unaffiliated families looking for a Jewish education for their children. The Jewish Youth Connection (JYC) is the Sunday morning Hebrew school founded by KJ members Susan and Scott Shay with the goal of providing a meaningful Jewish education to unaffiliated families. A total reinvention of the Hebrew School experience, its focus is to help foster a quality connection to Judaism for students and families alike.


JYC offers a hands-on, energetic, attentive, relevant, and tech-savvy environment for our students, who each walk away with a stronger connection to Judaism.


JYC’s curriculum traditionally includes Bible, Jewish history, customs, and holidays with new additions this year including sessions on resilience and diversity. The lessons and programs are relevant, fun, and exciting. Students from first through seventh grade are paired with a Big Brother/Sister for individualized Hebrew study, and there is a special track for students preparing for Bar or Bat Mitzvah that adds knowledge and meaning to this important Jewish milestone.


We are welcoming to ALL children from every educational background and with unique learning or physical needs.


No synagogue membership is required to attend JYC or participate in any of the school programming, and JYC families are invited to take advantage of congregational offerings.
