Welcome to the JYEP- The Place to be on Sunday Mornings!

The Jewish Youth Encounter Program is an independent Outreach Hebrew School serving the Bergen County Jewish community. It welcomes and respects diversity among Jews and embraces children on all levels. The JYEP is for children in the third through seventh grades.

Thank you for your interest in the JYEP, where each individual child is the focus of our program!

We invite you to learn more about the JYEP by exploring our website, attending our Open House, or visiting us any Sunday morning when school is in session. You will have an opportunity to meet our Director, Deborah Rapps, discuss our mission, educational philosophy and academic principles applied in the classroom. You will also have the opportunity to view our program in action and see for yourselves how the JYEP can offer you and your child a world of opportunity. Choosing the best school for your child and your family is an important educational decision. Our goal is to make the application process as simple and friendly as possible.

I look forward to meeting you and your child in the near future. Please feel free to contact me with questions about the JYEP or the admission process.

Dr. Deborah Rapps
Director, JYEP
