Yom Rishon: 

Yom Rishon at the J is the DCJCC’s Sunday morning Judaic program, for children currently in Kindergarten through 3rd grade.  Each year an additional grade will be added through the 6th grade.  This exciting new curriculum is designed to encourage a connection to the Jewish community through art, music, stories, food and experiential hands-on learning. We utilize the Center’s extensive resources to create fun-filled mornings and informal Jewish learning experiences.  Some of the topics covered include: holidays, life cycle, symbols, Israel, tzedakah, Jewish values, cooking, singing, and much more! 

The student will also be introduced to Hebrew in an age-appropriate hands-on manner which makes learning the language fun and exciting.  In the early grades the children will learn the alphabet and as they continue an introduction to Hebrew reading will take place.  This skill will help to prepare children who are interested in becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah at a local Temple, Synagogue or with an individual tutor.

To register for Yom Rishon, click here and select School Age Yom Rishon.  Calendar of classes coming soon.

MoEd DC: 

MoEd DC is an exciting new aftercare program at the DCJCC. Created in partnership with MoEd, a Jewish educational after-school program currently operating in Maryland, MoEd DC will offer an easy way for busy families, with children from PK4 to 3rd Grade, to introduce their children to Hebrew and Jewish learning.

The core program is focused on three “Content Days” which includes Hebrew study through immersion and Judaics balanced with play and homework time. Snack will be provided every day. Content Days will be Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays.

MoEd DC also offers optional “Enrichment Days” on Tuesdays and Fridays. Enrichment classes may include: swimming, musical theater, karate, LEGO engineering, soccer, yoga, Zumba and more.  Also, 3 year old siblings of MoED DC students will be eligible to attend DCJCC afterschool on all days.

Tuition Schedule:

3-day program (Content Days)                                     $ 3,900*

4-day program (Content Days + one Enrichment Day)    $ 4,750*

5-day program (Content Days + two Enrichment Days)   $ 5,400*

Please note tuition does not include transportation. We are working to create an affordable, convenient transportation option for families, and more information will be provided at a later date.


The program will be available until 6:00 pm every day (including Friday).  MoEd DC will not operate on Jewish holidays and some Federal holidays.  On DCPS and Charter School ‘No School Days’ there may be optional enrichment programming available at the DCJCC.
