Welcome to the Jewish Journey Project (JJP), a new initiative designed to revolutionize Jewish education.
JJP provides participants—from 3rd to 7th grades—with rich opportunities to engage in extensive educational opportunities outside of the classroom, making use of the vast Jewish resources of our great city of New York.
Each JJP participant plans and builds a personalized journey, choosing courses and workshops that match his or her passions and curiosities as well as preferred mode of learning. The JJP model is based on flexibility and creativity, with applicants working collaboratively with excellent educators from a variety of backgrounds.
At JJP, we broaden Jewish learning and deepen Jewish living by providing experiences that involve the individual, the family, the synagogue, The JCC in Manhattan, the 14th Street Y, and the larger New York Jewish community. We're excited that applicants will meet, study and grow with a wide range of fellow learners.
JJP offers courses along five distinct Pathways: Torah, God & Spirituality, Jewish Peoplehood, Hebrew, and Tikkun Olam. We offer courses every Monday–Thursday afternoon, on Shabbat, and on Sundays. JJP also offers Intensives, day camp-style courses that will take place during school vacations, and Independents, courses tailored to the individual. Every student will work closely with a JJP Advisor to help craft the ideal combination of courses each semester.
