EXPERIENCES FOR INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES

At JYourWay, we know that every individual and family is unique. You have Jewish values and traditions that you want to pass on to your children and that you are eager to share with your friends. JYourWay can help you do just that. By creating personalized and joyful Jewish experiences we help you create your own micro-Jewish community of family and friends.

 

That's why at JYourWay we don't run programs - we craft experiences that help you create lifelong Jewish memories. JYourWay takes Judaism personally. Each of our experiences is tailored to your passions and interests. Whether you like to learn, celebrate or pray we have an experience for you. If you have an idea for a way to personalize Judaism for you or your family that we haven't thought of, let us know. Scroll down to learn about the experiences we offer.

PRAY YOUR WAY

Abraham Joshua Heschel teaches that prayer happens when the word meets the soul. Sometimes the word comes first. When you open a siddur (prayerbook) and begin singing along with the congregation the words are coming first and then, hopefully, your soul is awakened by the power of those words. Other times, when we see a beautiful sunset, witness the vastness of the ocean or experience a modern-day miracle our souls wake up and we can't help but give expression to the emotions we feel. Either way, prayer is a spiritual release and a powerful way to give voice to our radical amazement at the world around us and the profound gift of life.

As children we had playdates. As young adults we found love on JDate. To make an eternal connection we go on a PrayDate. The idea is simple - invite your friends and family to your home on a Friday evening for Shabbat dinner and celebration. JYourWay will bring everything we need for a musical, joyful and short Shabbat evening service and will help you participate in all of the Shabbat dinner rituals like candle-lighting, kiddush and hamotzi. We'll even bring special Shabbat activities for the kids! 

Havdalah is a Hebrew word meaning “division” or “separation” and is the name of the ritual that formally ends Shabbat, “separating” it from the beginning of the new week. Havdalah is a short, participatory service infused with music, symbols, and meaning.

If you're having friends and family over on Saturday night, why not begin the evening with a beautiful Havdalah service led by your JYourWay team member. We'll bring everything you need. You just supply the friends and family.

When facing tragedies or challenges family, friends and faith help us find hope and healing. Judaism has a rich heritage of prayers and customs to bring people together to find comfort in difficult times. If you are struggling in a time of need JYourWay can help you craft a beautiful and meaningful service of hope and healing in which you, your family and friends can find peace and blessing. 

Your JYourWay team member will guide you through relevant Jewish texts and traditions and create a holy and precious moment of connectedness for you and your circle of friends. 

Sometimes we look at the world and our lives and just can't hold back our radical amazement at the wonder of it all. If you feel this awe and wonder why not share it with friends and family in a service of radical amazement. Your JYourWay team member will guide you in creating a joyous and memorable prayer experience celebrating all the gifts and blessings in your life. Why not share your amazement in your favorite park, or at the beach - the more beautiful and special the location the better.

Learning can happen anywhere and anytime. Why not bring some meaningful study to your co-workers and friends over lunch? Your JYourWay team member will come to your office or meet you at a local restaurant and inspire your colleagues with profound and relevant Torah study. We can explore the weekly Torah portion or any topic that is meaningful and interesting to you.

Study is always better with a warm beverage. That's the thinking behind ✡bucks n'Study. Gather your friends and family at a local Starbucks and your JYourWay team member will bring inspirational learning on the weekly Torah portion or a topic of your choosing.

Grab some friends and learn some Torah from wherever you are! Talkin' Torah with your JYourWay team member is inspiring, challenging and deeply relevant learning online about whatever Jewish topic moves you. Learners can be anywhere in the world as Talkin' Torah is held via video conference. Talkin' Torah sessions are $72 each no matter how many learners join us so the more learners, the cheaper it is for you!

Are your kids on the soccer field, baseball diamond or football field Saturday mornings? Are you cheering them on from the sidelines? Why not make the most of that time by transforming it into a Shabbat celebration. Your JYourWay team member will join you and your friends at the fields bringing along some wonderful discussion topics on the Torah portion of the week and a little Shabbat nosh. In between learning, we'll cheer your kids on and give them a special Shabbat gift after the game.

JYourWay offers Deep Dive learning so children and adults can follow their Jewish passions and discover the depth and breadth of Jewish wisdom.

Our mission is to create an immersive, living and joyful learning environment in which each student is both supported and challenged to create their own learning legacy. 

Tie the Knot

Mazal Tov! You're getting married! We would love to celebrate with you. JYourWay will work with you to create the perfect wedding ceremony. We have performed hundreds of weddings for happy couples and hope to stand under the huppah with you as well.

Welcome to the World

Mazal Tov! Congratulations on the birth of your baby! We couldn't be happier for you. JYourWay can help you craft a beautiful and meaningful Simchat Ben/Bat (Baby Naming/Celebration). 

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Looking for an out-of-the-box Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration? You've come to the right place. At JYourWay, we will work with you to craft a personalized and meaningful program of study leading up to Bar/Bat Mitzvah whether you are approaching your 13th birthday or your 83rd birthday.

Do you love spending time with your family? Enjoy being outdoors? Always welcoming friends to your home? Then the holiday of Sukkot is just for you. 

Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts," refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest.  In celebration of Sukkot, many Jews erect a sukkah, a small, temporary booth or hut. Sukkot (in this case, the plural of sukkah) are commonly used during the seven-day festival for eating, entertaining and even for sleeping. (www.reformjudaism.org)

Your JYourWay team member will help you build your very own sukkah for your home. We'll bring all of the materials and engage every member of your family in the building and decorating. During Sukkot you'll have a beautiful sukkah in which you can welcome friends and family. After the holiday, you'll keep all of the materials so you can put your sukkah up again next year.

The price for Build Your Sukkah includes sukkah building materials (that you get to keep for next year!)

Hanukkah is one of the most widely celebrated Jewish holidays. Why not share it with friends! Your JYourWay team member will help you create a beautiful and meaningful Hanukkah celebration complete with candle lighting, gift-giving and re-dedicating ourselves to bringing light into the world. As a part of our celebration you and your friends will learn about lighting the Hanukkiyah and the true miracle of Hanukkah. We'll even bring special activities along for the kids!

The ninth chapter of the Book of Esther states (verse 19): “Therefore the Jews of the villages, that dwelt in the unwalled towns, made the 14th day of the month of Adar a day of gladness and feasting, a holiday, and of sending portions to one another (mishloach manot ).”

From this historical event our rabbis teach that the Jewish people must send gifts of food to each other on the holiday of Purim. This has become a beautiful Purim tradition and JYourWay can help you make it all your own! Your JYourWay team member will join you and your family to bake hamantaschen and create beautiful mishloach manot gift bags to share with your friends. All you'll need to provide are some sweet treats to include in your mishloach manot bags along with your home-baked hamantaschen.

The price for Mishloach Manot includes ingredients for making hamantaschen and Purim gift bags.

The Passover seder (meaning order) is probably the most celebrated and beloved of Jewish home rituals. Most Jews have cherished memories of past family times spent at a seder. It is believed that the obligation to tell the story of the Exodus was observed by Jews’ ancestors ever since the actual Exodus itself. The scriptural command (Exodus 13:8) to tell the story of the exodus to our children is interpreted as a positive commandment (mitzvah). (www.myjewishlearning.com)

Are you planning a seder for family and friends? Why not personalize your Passover seder and truly make it your own. Your JYourWay team member will help you craft a custom Haggadah, introduce you to creative ways to engage your guests during the seder and help you gather all of the symbols and ritual items you'll need.

One of the ways we transform our house into a home is by placing a mezuzah on the doorpost and dedicating ourselves to building a Jewish home for our family and friends. Whether you've moved to a new home or are just putting up a new mezuzah, JYourWay stands ready to help you celebrate this milestone. Your JYourWay team member will help you plan a beautiful chanukat habayit (home dedication celebration) to which you can invite your family and friends. We'll even help you pick out the perfect mezuzah, which we can hang at your dedication celebration.
