WJC Family School 2023-2024
The Family School at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation provides an open, welcoming, and enthusiastic environment where learners and their families practice Judaism in a meaningful and enlivening way. It is a safe place to express your views, feelings and concerns without being judged.
Below you will find information about the program for the coming year! In addition, this page contains the current safety protocols as determined by our board of directors. We encourage you to become familiar with them, and if there are any questions we can answer, please feel free to reach out to Rahel, our Executive Director, at Rahel@wjcshul.org.

The 2023-2024 tuition for Family School is $655 for the Wednesday program. There is a required deposit of $50 upon registration, and you do need to be a member in good standing to participate in the Family School. The WJC is committed to cost not being a barrier to Jewish engagement and aspires to remove any barriers to accessing reduced tuition. We also are committed to being transparent about the cost connected with running our learning programs.
Tuition covers a portion of what it costs to run our Family School and is subsidized by WJC membership and fundraising. The actual cost to run our program per student is approximately $2,150.00 for the year. In addition to our commitment to transparency, we want to share these costs to encourage families to make a contribution that feels appropriate to their family. When you register, you will be invited to write in what you would like to be charged for tuition and how you would like to be billed. In other words, those who can pay the full requested tuition amount of $655 should enroll at that level. Those who need assistance should request it by indicating the amount you feel you can contribute this year. Any family who feels they can make an additional contribution above the requested amount of $655 is welcome to do so, with gratitude.
