Religious School aka YEP! Youth Education Program


YEP!, our Youth Education Program, is fun, educational, and creative – your children and grandchildren will love it. YEP! is free for Kehillah member families. YEP! is designed for children from Kindergarten through B’nai Mitzvah

At Kehillah, Jewish education is a life-long experience.

Our Youth Education Program (YEP!) is an innovative, creative program offering a variety of formal and informal educational programs where sometimes we will look more like a classroom and others like a Jewish youth group – along with family participation opportunities, all with a family friendly schedule. YEP! makes Jewish learning and ‘doing’ very alive and relevant!  Our small size allows for a sense of belonging and connection.

Online Learn Center (OLC)/Edmodo

This is an important component to our Religious School Youth Education Program (YEP!). With the help of our online learning platform, Edmodo (“Edmodo is an educational technology company offering a communication, collaboration, and coaching platform to K-12 schools and teachers”), our students and parents are able to communicate with their teachers online, while doing paperless assignments. Teachers from Kehillah utilize the website to enhance, differentiate, and supplement learning outcomes for students.  Kehillah teachers work closely with the curriculum coordinator to ensure a smooth transition to the OLC.  Students attend Sunday classes as usual, but then they are to continue their learning by responding to teacher’s questions and their peers online.  All students enrolled in YEP! are required to work in the online environment.  For the youngest students, engaging in games and interactive lessons will help them learn the Alef-Bet and will start them on a path for discovering the fun in learning.  The oldest students have the opportunity to reflect on their peers’ opinions as well as interact with games, videos, and posts within a secure discussion forum moderated by the staff of YEP!
