What is edjewcation station®? It’s a new philosophy in Jewish education, serving unaffiliated families in South Florida who want a positive, enriching Jewish connection for their families, without restrictive time and financial investment.
Jewish learning should be FUN!
Founded by Cantor Debbi Ballard, founder of My Personal Cantor and Shema Koleinu, Cantor Debbi saw firsthand how today’s students were over committed, stressed, and had no time or inclination to embrace their 4 hour per week Jewish education program. Similarly, today’s Jewish parents want more value from their Jewish affiliation, more personalized options, and creativity and passion behind their family’s Jewish connection.
In 2008, Cantor Debbi began teaching her first class of 5th graders. Five students gathered twice a month, to learn about being Jewish, in a very hands-on, engaging environment. We would focus on Jewish culture, foods, holidays, Torah, prayer, G-d, Mitzvoth/Ethics and Tikkun Olam. Word quickly spread, and in five short years, Cantor Debbi now has over 120 students in classes all over South Florida!
That led her to a challenging situation. How do you serve 120 students, in four major South Florida cities? Unable to utilize a single-location solution, the idea of a mobile classroom was born.
Today, edJEWcation station has become a reality! A classroom installed in a remodeled city bus, and designed to hold 10-14 students and a teacher, we now have the world’s FIRST EVER Jewish mobile classroom!
edjewcation station® will serve unaffiliated populations across South Florida, with many engaging, exciting programs. We will not only serve as a “totally cool Hebrew School”, but we will hold adult education programs, conversion classes, Intro to Judaism programs, book study, and any other programs our community desires.
Why don’t you come along – and get on the bus? Jewish education should be fun, and we firmly believe that we are taking the driver’s seat for the future of Jewish education!
edJEWcation station® – Nothing’s stopping you now!
