BJEP Heartbeat Chesed/Caring Community Fund
We invite each family to contribute at least $18, $36, $72, $136 at the time of registration to The BJEP Heartbeat Chesed Fund. Your generosity will directly support our efforts to care for and celebrate one another. BJEP is a non-profit organization and relies on the generosity of our families to provide support when called upon.  Note that while tuition is not tax-deductible, monies above our stated tuition are tax-deductible. Please consult a tax advisor for additional information regarding your individual situation.

As a convenience and to help facilitate planning, we encourage paying for your tickets at the time of registration.  Register here.

Tuition Refund Policy
A non-refundable and non-transferable deposit of $250 per child reserves a place in the class. No tuition refunds are granted after the third session of classes.

Parent Cooperative Jobs
As a parent cooperative, we rely on each family to help in a small way to run our program each year.  Many hands make light work. Each parent is required to sign up for at least one BJEP parent cooperative job per student registered in order for payment to be accepted. We love – and are very grateful – when we see families take on more than one job and lend their talents in various ways. Serving on BJEP’s Parent Board counts as a job, and we are always thrilled to welcome new board members.  Consider a role that works with your schedule, e.g., to learn or refine a new skill, serve as a greeter during an upcoming event, lead or join a committee, lend your talents at a Purim Carnival booth, or wrap gifts at Henry Bear’s Park. Please contact us with any job-related questions.

Family Picture(s)
Send us a family picture with the names of those pictured by email to We want to get to know you and your family better and to be able to recognize members of your family attending BJEP. BJEP families come in many shapes and sizes, so if your family has step-parents or multiple sets of parents, please feel free to email more than one picture. The pictures are for internal use only and will not be put on social media or used for publicity.
