Our Story

In 2012, Jewish Kids Groups piloted an independent Jewish education model. We wanted to make Hebrew school FUN again and to reach families not being served in the Jewish community. JKG started with just six children and has grown to over 250 at five locations! Our programs are designed for all types of Jewish families, including interfaith and unaffiliated. The Jewish educational backgrounds of our students are diverse, and our teachers are trained to engage all learners making JKG a place children look forward to coming, where friendships are made and Jewish identity is built.


Our Leadership Team


Meet Our Teaching Teams

We love our staff, students, and parents and work hard to constantly encourage and build them up because we absolutely couldn’t do what we do without them. Our team is authentically enthusiastic and do not take lightly their responsibility as role models for our kids. We empower our team, invest in them, and provide the resources they need to grow into the next generation of Jewish leaders.
