Our “shule” (Yiddish for school) brings together Jewish culture, social justice, and Yiddish language, and explores the rich resources of the Lower East Side. Spring field trips include an artist talk with Molly Crabapple at The Clemente and a visit to the Henry Street Settlement. 

Based on the Lower East Side, 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 3-13

B’nei Mitsve

Yiddish language and culture

Parent programs

Family field trips

Holiday celebrations

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
