Registration is now open at the Jewish Learning Lab (JLL) of Metrowest located at Congregation Or Atid in Wayland. This dynamic Jewish education program for pre-K through grade nine is open to all families with no requirement for synagogue membership, prior religious education or affiliation.
Rabbi and Education Director Sally Finestone observes: “Offering a Jewish education program, regardless of synagogue affiliation, may seem like a radical phenomenon, but we are excited to have a fresh and creative approach to Jewish learning. We are committed to our Judaism, our diversity and to our families by providing a vibrant and meaningful Jewish education and presence in Metrowest.”
Last year JLL and Hebrew College launched a dynamic partnership where exceptional faculty and education staff from both organizations collaborated on the design of our innovative curriculum. Hands-on learning is at its core where children explore the richness of Jewish traditions and how those lessons and values can be applied to their everyday lives. Whether learning to read and write Hebrew, exploring Jewish history, values, or Israel, the educational experience is marked by creativity, community events, and active participation.
Older students broaden their Jewish education experience with programs that offer ways to think about and experience being Jewish in today’s world. JLL takes the Jewish educational experience to the next level where teens explore and apply the values, leadership skills and ways to address the difficult questions they face every day.
The Jewish Learning Lab meets on Sundays and Wednesdays, and one Saturday each month (no Sunday class held on that weekend). Meeting days for teen programs vary.
