a place of learning

We seek to create an atmosphere of joy, pride, and excitement in our Hebrew School.  We believe that a strong foundation in Jewish study and practice develops a positive Jewish identity.  To that end, we deliver a curriculum of rigorous content in a warm, nurturing environment.

Parental support ensures that children's Jewish education will be richer and more meaningful.  Since Shabbat is an integral part of a Hebrew School education, we offer children-only and family oriented services.  In addition community-wide holiday observance for adults and children and many avenues for community service, provide a comprehensive Jewish education that is both Halakhic and real-world.

Chaverim Arts 

is a fun (and free) way to explore Judaism with your kids and grandkids. We

read books about the holidays and explore the rhythms of the Jewish calendar,

practice prayers, and learn some Hebrew words and letters of the alphabet. We

discuss what the holidays, rituals, and prayers mean to each of us, and talk

about what it means to be Jewish. We engage in crafts, music, and games and

always celebrate Shabbat by lighting candles, sharing challah and grape juice.

Activities are geared towards children ages 4-8 and a grownup/family member has

to come along. Younger/older children and siblings are also welcome to participate.


You do not need to be a member of the shul to participate in Chaverim Arts, however

if you are not a member we hope you will consider joining. Volunteers and membership dues are what allows JCNP to continue its mission. Becoming a member (at any dues amount) and getting involved is the only way for us to keep this program going in a way that best serves your family over the long-term.


If you are ready to join, please see the links to the dues pledge and family information forms. Please note that money should never be an obstacle to joining the shul. Join at the rate you are comfortable with.
