ABOUT THE SHEVA CENTER:
JCC early childhood programs are the largest platform of early childhood Jewish education in North America, touching thousands of young lives annually. Recognizing that reach and responsibility, the Sheva Center offers an innovative approach to early childhood education, empowering teachers and directors, and positioning JCC early childhood education centers as examples of excellence.
Sheva, which means seven in Hebrew, is a powerful number in Jewish thought and practice. The Sheva framework employs seven core principles of early care and education and contemporary and ancient texts, using seven Jewish lenses to reveal universal values.
By partnering with JCCs and other Jewish agencies, we can best support early education professionals in promoting and sustaining the best in early childhood Jewish education and engaging families on their Jewish journeys.
