Alternative Jewish Education Program Open House

Looking for an alternative Jewish learning program for your child(ren)? Ma’yan Tikvah is holding their spring Open House for Y’ladim BaTeva on May 18th at 4:00 pm.

All are welcome to learn more about this outdoor, alternative Jewish learning, and bar/bah mitzvah educational program, as Rabbi Katy Allen leads a sample walk through the Upper Mill Brook Conservation Area. Afterwards, there will be light refreshments, as she shares more about the school and answers questions.

This is a great opportunity to simply attend and learn more about this innovative program, especially if your child learns best in non-traditional, educational settings, or there will be an opportunity to register your child(ren) for the program if you feel ready to do so.
Interfaith families are warmly welcome.

Location: Upper Mill Brook Conservation Area, 107 Concord Road, Wayland.
In the case of inclement weather, the open house will be held at the Peace Lutheran Church, which is by the trailhead.

Please RSVP for the Open House at: or by calling 508-358-5996
