Building Jewish Education

BJE Impact

Hope and possibility in uncertain times

We are excited to announce our December PLC on December 1, 2020 at 10am.  We are partnering with Beit T'shuvah for an interactive discussion unpacking and exploring the major shift that we’ve collectively experienced as a result of the pandemic. On a personal and a global level everything we know and felt we could count on shifted quickly, and often nothing feels certain. For many, this experience highlights our sense of fragility and brokenness. We will discuss the human response to such trauma, and draw parallels to the experience of those in recovery from addiction.

I think being a Builder of Jewish education is about laying the foundation for others to build on top of. I love the work that I get to do here, working with other educators to provide support, and working with teens.

What is unique about working with teens is that they’re at a stage where they’re trying to figure out who they want to be in the world, how they matter. They’re asking big questions and grappling with big ideas.

BJE Teen Service Corps "sold out"

Jun 22, 2016

BJE Teen Service Corps "sold out" its two week-long summer day camps that will engage 63 teens in community service and service learning centered on the theme, "Hunger and Poverty".  Campers volunteer their service and explore the many ways LA based organizations work to address these issues, followed by reflection activities led by Teen Service Corps educators.
