A New and Creative Approach to Extracurricular Education – on Saturdays!
Kef Kids is open to all pre-K – 2nd graders and meets bi-monthly on Saturday afternoons, 2:00-3:30. Kids will experience what it is to be Jewish in a fun, informal setting.
JFLL blends individual choice with experiential and whole family learning. This year we are excited to pilot a new partnership with the groundbreaking Jewish Journeys Project (JJP) at the JCC in Manhattan for families with 3rd-4th grade children.
Rabbi Nadia Gold, our Director of Family Engagement, is always eager to speak with our current and prospective JFLL families and WES members at large. Make an appointment with ngold [at] westendsynagogue [dot] org (Nadia) to learn more about our unique brand of Jewish education.
