Building the Jewish Future

Fun Jewish Experiences for Kids + Connections for Parents

Through jkidphilly, Jewish Learning Venture engages families with young children. Across Greater Philadelphia, young children experience Jewish learning, celebrations, and relationships. Through PJ Library subscriptions, low-barrier programs, and Do-it-Yourself resources, families take active steps along their Jewish journeys.

Now in its 3rd year, Jewish Learning Venture’s jkidphilly Parent Ambassadors initiative empowers parents to lead programs and build relationships with families in their neighborhoods.

And in May 2019, we launched the jkidphilly Parent Ambassador Alliance bringing together visionary leaders to sustain the work Parent Ambassador initiative.
