Family Learning

BJEP takes pride in its grade-based programing where students and parents gather together to learn about topics that are age appropriate and relevant.  By spending time with our children and speaking about Jewish values or about our traditions and rituals, we are able to enhance the levels of communication within the family.  These programs are also great opportunities to experience how your child learns and interacts with his/her classmates and teachers.
