Kol Ami (the Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Jewish Community) will host an Open House for its Jewish Children’s Education Program (JCEP). The Open House will be an opportunity for parents to talk with our Rabbi, Gilah Langner, and with parents who are involved with JCEP. Interested parents may also observe the JCEP classes that follow the Open House. We’ll be in the Chapel.
JCEP conveys to students that it is cool to be Jewish – through a mix of instruction and activities balancing a deep respect for our people’s past with a lively sense of values, culture, and identity as American Jews. Knowledge of Hebrew and Jewish traditions can help children become members of our community. JCEP is divided into two parts, Hebrew and Jewish Studies. JCEP meets one time per week, from 5:00-6:30 on Sunday evenings. JCEP tuition is kept extremely low as compared with other Jewish children’s education programs because the teachers are Kol Ami parents who volunteer their time. These parents are highly qualified. For example, several are college professors.
