Welcome to the UJC Religious School!Yad b'Yad: Kulanu b'YachadHand in Hand: All of us Together!

 

Welcome back to school! We are excited for a new year of learning with our kids, along with our dedicated faculty, and have an exciting year planned with many great programs and activities. Clearly things are different this year as we start of in distance learning mode. God willing, we’ll be back at the UJC in person very soon; that of course depends on health guidelines.

The theme this year is Yad b’Yad: Kulanu b’Yachad, Hand in Hand: All of Us Together. This year more than ever, given the COVID challenges of sheltering in place, it’s essential that all of us grow and stay a strong Jewish community of children and grownups, (virtually) holding each other’s hands, sending each other strength, courage, love, and comfort.

The overarching goal of the year is for our kids to learn how Jewish values make us stronger as individuals and as a community. As our theme song this year (written by Ellen Allard) puts it, “We are better together – together we’re better Yachad!”

Let’s make this a wonderful year!

Education at the UJC

The United Jewish Center Religious School serves families from all over the Greater Danbury area: Bethel, Brookfield, Danbury, New Fairfield, New Milford, New Fairfield, Newtown, Oxford, Redding, Ridgefield and Westchester just to name a few.  The UJC Family wants to welcome you to our community!

Children attend Religious School on Sundays from Preschool through Confirmation; grades 2 through 7 attend on Wednesday afternoons as well.

Be sure to join us for holiday celebrations, family education days, Shabbat services and dinners, as well as junior congregation prayers. Our monthly Shabbat for All Ages Services - usually the 3rd Friday evening of the month - is when Cantor Kessler tells a story and kids and grownups celebrating birthdays in that month are given a special blessing and a UJC Birthday Chocolate Bar. 

Religious School at the UJC is free for UJC members.

Daryl Bain is the Director of Education; she can be reached at (203) 743-1180 or eddir@unitedjewishcenter.org.
