Jewish Life in Primary Schools

UJEB’s primary school program, Jewish Life, currently runs at 16 primary schools and 3 Specialist Schools.

The program runs either before school (50 minutes) or at lunchtime (30 minutes). We also run special assemblies for Jewish festivals.

The Jewish Life program is designed to be a first point of call for students to learn about Jewish history, festivals, culture and traditions. Classes are designed to give students positive Jewish experiences, to inspire their Jewish identity and to encourage exploration of their heritage and religion through interesting and stimulating sessions. The program aims to help students develop a sense of belonging and pride in their Jewish heritage.

Teachers blend traditional and experiential learning techniques, allowing each student to learn in a comfortable and supported environment.

If you are looking for a more in-depth program, please see our After School Centres tab on our website.

UJEB also offers the Hebrew Immersion Program (HIP) at Caulfield Junior College, Caulfield South Primary, Gardenvale Primary, Tucker Rd Primary and Coatesville Primary.


Before school – $140 / term or  $500 for the year, if pre-paid in term 1.
Lunch time – $50 / term and $150 for the year if, pre-paid in term 1.
