At the Jewish Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL), we believe in learning that engages each child's whole person, body, heart & soul.

Judaism teaches that one should learn Torah in order to live it out, and that one should do mitzvot in order to understand them. In other words, we have two opposing pedagogies: learn in order to do, and do in order to learn. At JCAL we do both.

Family Education Days

Every grade in JCAL has a Family Education Day, during which parents, guardians, and adult family members (and like-family adults, too!) are invited to join their child in a day of learning related to that grade's curriculum. Each Grade's Family Education Day (with some rare exceptions) includes

  • Adult-only learning and bonding time with a Rabbi
  • Learning and a hands-on activity with your child
  • Breakfast 

For your child's Family Education Day, see the JCAL Calendar, linked above.

The B'nai Mitzvah Discovery Class' Family Education Day is the B'nai Mitzvah Shabbaton, Friday, November 17 & Saturday, September 18.
