BJEP (Boston-area Jewish Education Program) is not your traditional Hebrew school.

We’re an independent and unaffiliated community of families whose children meet on Sunday mornings on the Brandeis campus in Waltham, MA.  Our program for children is taught by passionate and knowledgeable university undergraduates actively participating in Jewish life.

We’re a welcoming community, embracing Greater Boston families from all backgrounds interested in learning Hebrew and exploring Jewish traditions, values and culture.

Experiential learning and Jewish arts and culture are central to the program. We offer extended day options so children can learn Modern Hebrew, Jewish dance and Jewish theater.

We also offer adult learning, family education, and an opportunity for families to join neighborhood havurot (Jewish groups).

We run High Holiday services and provide Bar and Bat Mitzvah support.

Headed by an education director, BJEP is governed by a volunteer parent board of directors. As a co-op, parents commit to taking a job to keep tuition lower at a significant cost savings to our community.

We hope you’ll join us on your Jewish journey.
