Our vision is to plant the seeds of Judaism to cultivate a strong Jewish future. We strive to strengthen Jewish awareness and to empower our youth to become confident leaders. We provide soulful educational, creative and social activities, and offer inspirational resources using art, nature and cutting-edge approaches in education and technology.
Rabbi Avraham and Nechama Laber have served the Capital Region Jewish community since 1996 with innovative educational programming to ensure a bright Jewish future. Our motto is “Planting Seeds of Judaism” and we have seen how our programs that include: Capital Region Bat/Bar Mitzvah Club, Jewish Girls Retreats, Youth clubs, Passover retreats, creative holiday programming, Smile on Seniors, Hebrew school have produced beautiful fruit and resulted in our new Jewish Greenbush Retreat that is the home to all of our local and global programs today.
