KI has joined with our neighbors, Congregation Adath Jeshurun and Beth Sholom Congregation to form a new program for religious education for kids in grades K-6. Based on KI's transformational JQuest program, JQuest B'Yachad allows students to go on quests to dig deeper and explore the world of Jewish life. While JQuest B'Yachad students come together for Judaic studies, KI's clergy lead Tefillot (prayer) each Sunday and Tuesday and KI students study their own Reform Movement prayer curriculum in the older grades. KI clergy are present each week at JQuest B'Yachad to maintain their connection with our students and the JQuest B'Yachad program is directed by KI's Director of Religious Education, Rabbi Stacy Eskovitz Rigler, MAJE.
JQuest B'Yachad encourages individual voice and choice allowing kids to be participants in choosing how they want to learn in electives and group projects. KI recently received its second accreditation from the Association of Reform Jewish Educators for its top notch educational program.
JQuest B'Yachad meets on Sundays from 9:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. September through May and on Tuesdays from 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. for 2nd - 6th graders.
