The WOW! Project is bringing Jewish education out of the classroom and into a world of possibilities. Grounded in Experiential Education, WOW! programs and projects encourage students to learn by doing. In addition to offering specialized programming, we serve as a resource to educators in the Greater Hartford community, offering curriculum enrichment options and hands-on methodology.

Partnering with local Jewish schools, camps and agencies, WOW! affords students and teachers the chance to extend their Jewish learning by exploring values and lessons through a wide array of events rooted in pop culture, art, science, and more. Sample topics include:

  • The theme of light in the Hanukkah as seen through a laser maze adventure
  • Our Biblical ancestors’ stories hidden in the stars inside a mini-planetarium
  • Extending our Sukkot harvest through pickle-making
  • Turkey and Torah, exploring the connections between Jewish traditions and Thanksgiving

You can select events from a menu of options, or your group may work with our staff to create your own “WOW-venture!” To learn more, please contact Jennifer Schwartzman.
