Dear Prosepctive Families

Thank you for your interest in LEV Academy at Perrineville Jewish Center.  Since 1910, PJC has been serving our community by holding Shabbat and holiday services, social events, community outreach and educating the next generation.  L’dor vador, from generation to generation, is a precept which we proudly uphold.  Our families vary in age and through multi-generational programming, we bring generations together to celebrate our Judaism, heritage and culture and pass it on to the next generation – our youth.

LEV Academy is an incredible place for our youth to learn about who they are as Jews and partners in the community at large.   LEV Academy has seen a transformation that has bridged our traditions with modern learning. Using iPads and Chrome Books to enhance and reinforce learning, students are engaged in a wide variety of lesson plans and programs that are interactive, project based and hands-on.  We collaborate with students in Israel to learn about each other’s culture in Israel and in the Diaspora.  We bring music into every classroom and use art and drama to reinforce concepts.  Our Hebrew language program is taught by certified, experienced, Israeli teachers who teach in modern and fun ways and are passionate about what they do and their students’ success. Our music program is a key component to our curriculum.  Combining fun Jewish and Israeli music with t’fillah ~ learning our prayers and blessings ~ our students love music and go home singing in the car (or even in the shower!).  Our students love coming to LEV Academy and are eager to show their families what they’ve learned.

There are plenty of family participatory programs that allow you to learn along-side your child.  Our services are family friendly and explanatory.  Each child has the opportunity to help lead our family service on the bima and each class hosts an Oneg or Kiddush where you can mix and mingle with our clergy and other families.  We offer themed Shabbats, community-wide programming and an active social club with programs and events for all ages.  There is something for everyone at PJC.

We have options to suit all families and are pleased to offer our LEV Academy program at no cost to you and fair and flexible payment terms.  In choosing to join our family you will receive:

  • FREE LEV Academy enrollment (up to two children)
