Early Childhood & Elementary

We have two fantastic partners on our campus to help facilitate our early childhood education: The Jewish Enrichment CenterAkiba-Schechter Jewish Day School

Jewish Enrichment Center

jec_logo_smallThe Jewish Enrichment Center (calendar), located at Rodfei Zedek, is an independent Sunday and after‑school program with offerings for toddlers through ninth graders. Rodfei Zedek members receive a tuition discount through a subsidy from the Congregation. 


Children establish their own relationship with Judaism through creative, in-depth projects, drawing on traditional Jewish texts and ideas, values of their families and communities, and personal experiences.  And, it's a full‑service after‑school:  snack, play, friendship, all in a warm, Hebrew-filled environment.

At the Jewish Enrichment Center, children involve their whole selves in Jewish learning.  Long-term projects let children dive into questions that matter to them while gaining foundational Jewish literacy.  Children express ideas in clay, conversation, blocks, dance, and a hundred other “languages,” as part of the long tradition of Jewish conversation.  The process encourages curiosity and empathy, and teaches skills for critical thinking and respectful disagreement.  Children from many backgrounds learn together. For schedule and more information, please contact the Jewish Enrichment Center directly.

Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School

Many Rodfei Zedek families enroll their children at Akiba Schechter Jewish Day School Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School, which provides a child-centered secular and Judaic education in Hyde Park to a diverse community of Jewish children from all over the Chicago area.
