Urban Shtetl is an inclusive, loving community that offers creative, inter-generational, earth-centered, culturally rich Jewish education for children and their Jewish, multi-faith and multi-heritage families. We honor Sephardi, Mizrahi, Ashkenazi, Asian, and African-American Jewish cultural and spiritual traditions. We embrace queer, theologically questioning, bold and engaging approaches to Jewish learning.
We actively engage children and families in Jewish storytelling, ceremony, visual art, dance, music, outdoor adventure, and textual study. We surround our families with experiences to empower everyone to ask questions, challenge assumptions, and create meaningful Jewish lives.
