The Jewish Community School (JCS) of the Twin Tiers is a part-time community based program for Jewish children in the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania and Southern Tier of New York, and presently serves an average of 25 children from four counties.  The school provides an educational environment during the secular school year on Sunday mornings, and virtually on Thursday afternoons for continued Hebrew language study, for grades Pre-K through 10 (Confirmation).


 Funding for the school is provided by student registration, as well as through both the Jewish Center and Federation (JCF) and Congregation Kol Ami (CKA).  Family membership with CKA is required for school participation and enrollment.  The JCS school board comprises the leadership of the school, with representatives from both CKA and the JCF.  Rabbi Oren Steinitz, and part time school director Jeffrey A. Rosenheck, serve as ex-officio of this board.

Congregation Kol Ami also offers Adult Education.
