We are excited to share with you our plans to launch one of our 2024 initiatives - The BJE Hub.

If you have a child in Primary School, we would love to hear your thoughts, by filling in this 2 minute survey: (link in bio)

The BJE Hubs will be:
• located in relatively close proximity to schools
• offered in the afternoons after school between 3.30pm and 5.30pm
• attract a childcare subsidy for eligible families
• offer a highly developed curriculum that is inclusive, celebrates diversity and is aligned with contemporary educational practices

Your voice is crucial to the overall success of The BJE Hubs, and we encourage you to complete this 2 minute survey to assist us in developing the best possible offer for Jewish children.

The BJE Hubs will be an immersive and enrichment opportunity for Jewish Primary and High School students who will enjoy:
• meeting and connecting socially with other Jewish children, across different ages
• engaging in authentic cultural, traditional and festival experiences
• being mentored and guided by dynamic youth leaders, whilst growing a new generation of leaders
• opportunities to learn Hebrew as a living language, and a meaningful connection to Israel
• preparing and celebrating Bar and Bat Mitzvah ceremonies
• shaping a Jewish identity and a sense of belonging to community
