New England Jewish Homeschoolers
Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire
Contact: Beth Burnham
Description: We welcome people who are interested in participating (and helping to organize) some of the many activities we have. We have a variety of religious and secular activities for children of all ages. On our e-list, we are privileged to have Orthodox Jews, Conservative Jews, Reform Jews,Reconstructionist Jews, secular Jews. The primary goal of NEJHS is to allow our children (and us!) to get together with other Jewish homeschoolers.
Requirements: We do not allow so-called Messianic Jews (Jews for Jesus). There is no proselytizing allowed on our e-list or at our gatherings. This list is NOT for discussing religious politics or "how" to be a Jew. Note: Non-Jews married to Jews and raising their children as Jews or with Jewish traditions are also welcome.
Benefits: We have field trips planned at least once per month. For example, in the last few months, we have explored historic houses in New England, visited the Museum of Science, and had a wonderful Sukkah party.
