a dvocate for  Jewish awareness and education

PRomote Jewish pride and identity  

advance tolerance of Jewish culture and heritage

Among youth  AND FAMILIES of all backgrounds


To imbue youth and families with Jewish awareness, identity and pride. The most effective learning is done when we do not identify the experience as formal education. Our programs are both formal and informal and therefore have the highest impact. They are engaging and encourage participants to appreciate and understand Jewish heritage in a hands-on fashion. TIJEC’s programs enhance the participant’s experience by making it more exciting, accessible, and memorable.

Our reach extends to schools, community centers and many other other places where we touch the lives of individuals who otherwise may not receive any exposure to Jewish education or culture.
