Family Learning Models

Jewish education focuses on families learning and growing Jewishly through shared experiences and study.  Structure may support the family unit by providing childcare, multi-age learning, or regular hands-on activities.  Learning may take place in a variety of settings including the synagogue, Tikkun Olam project sites, or one another’s homes.  This learning might take place on Shabbat, on a family retreat, or parallel to traditional Sunday school hours.  An emphasis on creating connections within and among participating families drives much of the educational design.  A key to the Family Learning Model is the refocus on families, not only children as learners.
