Welcome to the JEC Lower School!

BeerI am proud to invite you to learn more about the JEC, a vibrant modern Torah day school built on the incredible legacy established by Rabbi Pinchas Mordechai Teitz zt”l in 1940. The JEC services the greater Metrowest area and beyond, including children from Elizabeth, Hillside, Springfield, West Orange, and Linden. 

We are a unique school where our talented team of professionals creates an environment that nurtures every child’s growth. Our strong academic program offers individualized instruction that engages children in creative and collaborative learning opportunities. We are committed to cultivating a love of Torah and creating dynamic programming that fosters warm relationships and strong friendships. JEC students are inspired and empowered to achieve excellence as they continue to high school and beyond. 

There’s no better way to experience the energy and excitement of the JEC than to see it firsthand. I invite you to visit us, and look forward to meeting you!
