NNJJA: Bergen County’s Consortium Religious School for Students Ages 2-13
Part of building your child’s Jewish identity is having them be part of a dynamic and diverse Jewish community. NNJJA (pronounced NINJA) is a well-rounded, community-based religious school experience.. Classes for preschool through 7th grade are held at Temple Israel in Ridgewood. Children from five Bergen County congregations share the NNJJA experience, though a consortium. NNJJA is open to consortium members and unaffiliated families through grade 3, after which membership is required in a participating synagogue.
The NNJJA curriculum combines hands-on fun and experiential learning with strong academics to teach Jewish tradition, culture, prayer, history and Torah.
