Starting August 1st, The United Jewish School (UJS) is open for registration! We are looking forward for another exciting year of Jewish learning, growing, and fun! In addition to an engaging curriculum that examines prayers, holidays, Jewish art, Hebrew, Jewish culture, Israel, and Jewish philosophy, this year will also feature Israeli dancing, Jewish cooking, Jewish Mindfulness, Jewish meditation, Jewish Yoga, and much more! UJS believes in creating an interactive and participatory environment where children are not being lectured “at,” but are “in conversation” with teachers about how personally learn and how best they can be engaged. UJS is focused on creating a learning environment where every child is seen, loved, and celebrated. We are proud to be creating the next generation of Jews in Grand Rapids. Please join us in this exciting educational and communal journey, beginning on September 11th! Please go to UnitedJewishSchool.org and click on 2022-2023 to register your child. Families who register during the month of August get a free gift!
P.S. Please keep an eye out for our exciting announcement about a new program for our 8th-12th graders called “Mitzvah Core, where our teenagers will explore Jewish education through charitable service projects, leadership opportunities, community building, exploring creative ways to experience Jewish life, and deep conversation in Jewish values and philosophy.
