Passport to Jewish Learning

What is the Passport to Jewish Learning?

Passport to Jewish Learning (PJL) takes the traditional Jewish education model to a new place where social action, Shabbat and holiday celebration, Jewish history and Israel, family education, and Rodef Shalom intergenerational community building are top priority. By creating experiential learning opportunities at every turn, all participants are engaged in an amazing Jewish journey.

 The Passport to Jewish Learning program has 4 components. 

  1. Shabbat Supper Club: Family Torah Learning: One Friday a month
  2. Shabbat Schmooze: History and Holidays: One Saturday a month
  3. Sunday Social Action Day (formerly Sunday FunDay): Doing Mitzvot: One Sunday a month
  4. Ulpan/Mini Ulpan Hebrew class*: Reading/writing/prayer/vocabulary: 

Weekly on Wednesday afternoons. *With a “NO Hebrew class” option for Day School Students

This year, our program will have a “theme” that will be carried out throughout the year. During the 2017-2018 (5779) school year, students will explore the theme of MISHPACHA (FAMILY) through participation in each of the programs.


When does it meet?

There are four components to the PJL program that meet at various times.

Shabbat Schmooze meets one Saturday a month,

Are there parent learning opportunities?

Yes! We have many opportunities for parent learning both with and without their children. 

What is mandatory and what is optional?

We feel that all aspects of our program are essential, but we also understand that every family has a very busy schedule and cannot be at every program. If you have questions about your specific schedule needs, please speak with Dawn .

If my child goes to day school, can we still participate?

Absolutely. We have a day school option for children who attend a day school and might not need to participate in the Ulpan program.
