Education and Learning
The JCC’s Early Childhood Development Program is the area’s leading comprehensive childcare facility and preschool, serving infants six weeks old through pre-K children, providing a caring and nurturing environment to help children explore their world with curiosity and passion.
The leaders of our community’s future are being created today at the Syracuse Hebrew Day School. SHDS offers an enriched program of General and Judaic Studies complemented by a full range of co-curricular programs for children in grades K-6. Small classes, highly individualized instruction and experienced teachers make SHDS the perfect choice for parents committed to an outstanding education for their children.
The Syracuse Community Hebrew School provides high-quality Hebrew education to prepare students for Jewish life in synagogue and at home. The school fosters a sense of Jewish community throughout the Central New York area, engaging students in grades 3-7, of all abilities and levels, in a creative learning environment.
For almost fifty years, the Epstein School has been the place where Central New York Jewish teens have come together to learn, share, and build a community.
Shalshelet means chain, and it connects teens, The Epstein School of Jewish Studies, and the Syracuse Community Hebrew School or one of our community’s three Sunday schools in a work/study program that includes attending the Epstein School for 1-2 hours/week and volunteering or working as a madrich/madricha (teacher’s aide) 2-5 hours/week at the community school or in a synagogue religious school.
