Kehillah Organization

Kehillah is the Hebrew word for “community.” The PJA Kehillah Organization is an informal family group that works closely with PJA staff to support the educational programs and activities of the school, encourage family involvement in their child’s education, classroom(s) and school, and provide feedback and suggestions for school programs. Kehillah spearheads Staff Appreciation Week, fosters community building through social programming, and helps coordinate class participation in the annual PJA auction.

Every PJA family is automatically a member of the Kehillah.

If you have questions or want to get involved, please contact the Kehillah co-chairs, Tamar Wyte-Lake and Donna Komitor at kehillah@pjaproud.org.
