The Wandering J creates a mobile space used to build Jewish connections and create community wherever it happens to be- Starbucks, a local synagogue, playgrounds, town festivals or truly anywhere on (or off) the beaten path!
Our customized van is outfitted with a cozy program space for stories, crafts, and projects, as well as an environmentally-friendly battery, operated electrical system which allows us the flexibility to hold events in any location day or night!
Our vision is to engage the entire Jewish community in new ways, at new locations and to attract individuals by meeting them where they may be. The Wandering J gives us a presence outside our campus, engaging the entire Jewish community through partnerships with local Jewish agencies, neighborhood businesses as well as departments within the Bender JCC itself.
Look for us around town soon!
