We are two Canadian Jewish sisters with a strong religious upbringing, and decades of experience working in Jewish education. While we have both worked hard to establish and maintain our sense of community, wherever we've been, we have each lived much of our lives in not-particularly Jewish neighbourhoods.
JewJu Box was born from our experience of feeling disconnected from, and longing for, a connection to the Jewish community in places that felt anything but. As we watched our adult children leave the cities we'd raised them in, for dorms and apartments with nary a mezuzah or a menorah in sight, we wanted to help alleviate some of those feelings we'd felt.
Our hope is to make it that little bit easier to be a Jew, wherever you may go, and wherever you may be.
