NNJJA- Northern New Jersey Jewish Academy Hebrew School Program '21/22

Registration Deadline 02/01/2022

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. 

 NNJJA Schedule:

Programs from tot through 2nd grade are held on most Sunday mornings, and one in-person Shabbat morning a month. We are open to members and non-members.

Classes for students in 3rd through 7th grades meet on most Sundays, one in-person shabbat a month, and over zoom on Wednesday afternoons.
