Board of Jewish Education

The core and unique responsibility of the New South Wales Board of Jewish Education, otherwise known as BJE, is to provide Jewish education to children in state and private school systems; that is, outside of the Jewish dayschool system.

It is our aim to reach these children, who are scattered throughout the Sydney metropolitan area and in families across Australia and beyond, with quality Jewish education programs.

To ensure the social integration of these families in the Jewish community, BJE provides enrichment and informal education opportunities for the children and their families.

To ensure quality education, BJE provides professional and curriculum development for teachers across the whole spectrum of education in areas related to Judaism, Hebrew language, Jewish History, Israel and other generic education fields.

BJE offers a range of services which enhance Jewish learning and Jewish continuity.
