Chesed/Caring @ BJEP

chesedChesed at BJEP is a parent-led working group that fosters connections within the BJEP community. Chesed translated loosely means “loving-kindness” or “compassion.” As parents, we want to model kindness and compassion for our children. Part of being a community includes being connected to what is happening in each other’s lives. We hope to promote community and loving-kindness by reaching out to members of our community during times of difficulty and joy. Every BJEP family is a chesed member.

New this year, the 4th grade will partner with Chesed to create a caring community project.

Together we create a community that cares for one another. If you are interested in participating in any way (big or small) please email Chesed@BJEP.com

More details on Chesed Class Liaison positions:
We are a group of parent volunteers that work toward building community and inclusion by performing acts of kindness to families at BJEP.  These small acts can be during a time of difficulty, such as sending a card to a family who has lost a loved one.  It can also be to spread word of a celebration or recognition.  Joining the group is a simple way of being involved in the BJEP community.  We hope to grow this group to be able to assist in meal sign up or other coordinated volunteer efforts.

    The Boston-area Jewish Education Program (BJEP), an independent, vibrant and inclusive Jewish learning community, from pre-K to Grade 7, invites the community to join us for Opening Day/Open House as we begin the 2018-2019 school term.

    Through an interactive curriculum, BJEP (pronounced B-Jep) instills in our students a sense of joy and belonging within the Jewish community, and knowledge of Jewish traditions and the Hebrew language.

    BJEP meets once a week on Sunday mornings on the Brandeis campus, with Brandeis students teaching our dynamic, experiential curriculum. We also engage parents with family programming and festive celebrations throughout the year.

    We look forward to meeting you and your family at our September Open House!
