Our After-School Centre at Caulfield Junior College (CJC) provides a Jewish studies and Hebrew language program that covers traditions, customs and festivals, as well as Jewish history and Israel.
As of 2020, UJEB will be offering one after-school option at CJC – The Jewish Life After-School Program. This includes a Jewish Life curriculum, as well as a focus on Hebrew reading and conversation.
Classes take place on Tuesdays, commencing after school and concluding at 5.30 pm. The cost for this program is $270 per term.
The Jewish Life curriculum follows the Jewish calendar. Students learn about and experience our festivals and traditions, including bible stories, major historical events, Israel and contemporary Jewish and Israeli culture. Our students develop the knowledge and skills to fully participate in Jewish communal life, as well as a love and appreciation for Jewish practice.
The Hebrew language component aims to give children the ability to read, write and speak Hebrew. The program is based around conversational topics, starting from colours and numbers, and progressing to useful everyday topics such as food and clothing. It also prepares the children to read and understand texts relevant to the main Jewish festivals and traditions. This program enables students to engage in further Hebrew study at secondary school level.
Many UJEB CJC After-School students also access the CJC Hebrew Immersion Program (HIP) before school three days per week.
