Mission: JQuest B’Yachad engages Reform and Conservative students in meaningful, intentional Jewish learning while putting student voice and choice at the center



Vision: JQuest B’Yachad is the collaborative religious school for AJ, BSC, and KI.  At JQuest B’Yachad, families maintain strong relationships with their synagogues while creating a new, multi-denominational Jewish community.


Our Quest is for our learners to become Jewish adults with:

  1. A joyful and loving connection to our Jewish community and history
  2. Competence and confidence in decoding Hebrew and participating in synagogue worship
  3. An ability to find inspiration & meaning in the study of Torah and the Jewish tradition
  4. A dedication to Jewish actions (mitzvot) and a connection to Jewish rituals
  5. An understanding of modern & cultural Hebrew words
  6. A strong Jewish identity
  7. A passion for tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedek (justice) both in and beyond the Jewish community
  8. A relationship with God: noting God in their world, being thankful for blessings, and reaching out in times of need
  9. A familiarity with Jewish arts and an ability to join in the songs and culture of our people 
  10. A commitment to Am Yisrael (People of Israel), Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel), and Medinat Yisrael (State of Israel)
