A Cooperative School With a Professional Staff
From Kindergarten through seventh grade, CJEG provides our students with a foundation to experience the joy, pride and appreciation of being Jewish. A wealth of Jewish traditions, history, music, art and holiday celebrations are shared by classmates as they discover the richness and uniqueness of our heritage. Our paid staff includes an educational director, administrator and five teachers. Each class has a former student who works as a paid teacher’s aide
Students attend class Sunday mornings from 9:30 – 11:30 starting in September and ending the first week of May, on the campus of SUNY Purchase.
We celebrate the holidays together, with parents and siblings invited to join in the festivities. Holiday celebrations include Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot (in a Sukkah that our parents and children build and decorate), Simchat Torah, Chanukah, Tu B’Shevat, Purim, and Passover. We have high holiday services at Hawthorne Cedar Knolls in Hawthorne, NY.
Bar/Bat Mitzvah Lessons are Available
For those families who are interested, our seventh grade teacher conducts additional classes for students who wish to prepare for becoming a bar or bat mitzvah. Individual tutoring is also available.
