SHANA TOVA FROM UJEB
UJEB provides engaging and affordable Jewish education to the 40% of our community’s children in government and non-Jewish private schools. Our work is critical to the future of our community, and we need your support to continue this important task.
We have been working hard to meet the challenges of 2021, and are continuing to provide strong programs in both primary and secondary schools. Our teachers and students are now well-practised in pivoting between in-person and online classes as needed, enabling continuity in all of our programs.
For primary-aged children, we are running our Jewish Life program in 22 schools, as well as an online mode for students in other schools. More than 200 children are now studying Hebrew in our Hebrew Immersion Program (HIP), which has expanded to 7 government primary schools due to growing parent demand.
For secondary school learners, we have a wide range of in-school and out-of-school programs. These include educational offerings and engagement opportunities such as our J-Lunch program in 5 schools, our J-Voice leadership and advocacy program, a year 10 Israel trip and our annual bar and bat mitzvah programs. UJEB also supports the Hebrew language program at Glen Eira College. In addition, we run regular social activities through our collaboration with BBYO, connecting students from all of our programs.
This year, we are also piloting a new and exciting “UJEB online” secondary school Jewish studies curriculum, to provide teens in non-Jewish schools with access to a full Jewish education.
Now more than ever we need your support to continue our important work.
