What Is Tribe?
Tribe has provided innovative and exciting programmes to Jewish youth for 14 years. Our mission of ‘creating a future for our communities through engaging, educating and inspiring the next generation’ has never been more important.
Tribe runs a variety of programmes and activities centrally and across US shuls and schools. These aim to inspire and enrich Tribe members’ lives and help them on their Jewish journey. For more information about our activities visit about us on our website.
Involvement with Tribe begins with a baby gift-pack for new parents and continuesin communities with children’s services on Shabbat and Cheder. As they grow up, Tribe will entertain, educate and provide a whole range of activities for your children.
Once at primary school, Tribe supplements your child’s Jewish studies lessons with the Tribe curriculum including the revolutionary Hebrew reading course, Aleph Champ, and extracurricular programmes such as ‘Kosher Apprentice’, 'TIshrei’s got Talent' and more. Tribe also run fun days out during the holidays and a host of Shabbatonim within the Jewish school network.
In secondary schools we provide support for special assemblies, extra-curricular activities and lunch and learns in both Jewish and non-Jewish schools. Similarly at Jewish secondary schools, Tribe provides educational support for enrichment programmes and lead assemblies.
Outside of school, Tribe host Shabbatonim throughout the year, ensuring children have a fun and spiritual Shabbat experience, and strengthening their connection with Tribe. Additionally, Tribe run incredible summer programmes for children in Years 5-13, in the UK, Belgium, New York and Rwanda. There is also Tribe Israel Tour for those finishing Year 11.
