What is the Va'ad Horim?

The Va'ad Horim (Va'ad) is you! JCDS has a Va'ad to bring together the amazing families that make up our community, to learn, to celebrate, to serve the community and to support the faculty and staff to whom we entrust our children's education.

The Va'ad Horim is all of us! The Va'ad is an all-volunteer organization, with a role for every family. From room parents to Challah coordinator, from Israeli dancing to the Pesach Food Drive, we hope you will volunteer for a role that fits your interests and your schedule. There will be sign-up opportunities at upcoming events and online.

The Va'ad Horim is each of us! We are excited to introduce the 2021-2022 Va'ad Leadership.

The Va'ad Horim is what you want it to be! JCDS' greatest resource is our families. It takes all of us to build the community together and our hope is that every parent finds a meaningful way to become part of our volunteer community. Share your great ideas, and then roll up your sleeves and let's make it happen!

We look forward growing our community TOGETHER!
