Our “shule” (Yiddish for school) invites families to build a contemporary Jewish identity rooted in an exploration of cultural heritage and a search for justice. We are a welcoming community of multifaith, multiracial families with diverse gender identities, family structures, and Jewish journeys, from across the greater NYC area.

Program includes:

Classes for children ages 2-13

B’nei Mitsve

Yiddish language and culture

Parent programs

Family field trips

Holiday celebrations

Teen community service and activism opportunities 

Hear from our parents:

“Shule has taught us how to hope and dream and fight for justice in really hard times.”

BETH AND RACHEL, Brooklyn parents

“Our child really loves the combination of hands-on learning, Yiddish music and song, family recipe cooking classes, and its big family atmosphere.”

LARISSA AND TYLER, Lower East Side parents

“When we get to engage with other families and my daughter sees all of the people and generations connected through Yiddish language and culture – especially at our shule which is very diverse – she and I are able to be all of ourselves at once.” 

JUDITH, Upper West Side parent
