How does it work?
By being part of J-LOFT, Jewish students from the MetroWest area can participate in a variety of classes, courses, and programs (known as tracks), offered by a team of local clergy members and educators.
In addition to the different tracks, J-LOFT hosts a program-wide gathering one Sunday a month, which is more social in nature, giving space for all out teens to get together as one community.
J-LOFT is open to all teens in grades 8-12, regardless of temple affiliation, and is intended to complement, and not substitute individual synagogues’ Religious or Hebrew School programs. In fact, many students who attend J-LOFT do so in addition to their own temple’s programs.
J-LOFT, a unique partnership among MetroWest synagogues, connects and empowers Jewish teens through meaningful opportunities for relevant learning, personal growth, relationship building, and social action.
A diverse community of Jewish teens who feel strong in their Jewish identity, bonded with other Jews, responsible for repairing the world, and empowered to live Jewishly throughout their lives.
