PSJC Hebrew School is planning to meet primarily in person beginning in fall of 2021. We will continue to evaluate based on any updated recommendations from the PSJC Covid Committee or changes in NYC protocols. We will use our outdoor space as much as possible while weather permits, especially for larger groups gatherings, such as tefillah, or when we have breaks and snacks. Note that we expect that masks will continue to be required for Hebrew School and youth programming in the fall. Remote Hebrew sessions will be available for 3rd - 6th grade in place of Wednesday Hebrew School.
10:00AM - 10:45AM
PSJC's It's Friday will meet for a 10-week series beginning in October. Multiple and single-class registration is available.
