Grandparents & Special Friends Society

JCHS' Grandparents and Special Friends Society reflects our dedication to embracing all those who provide support to our students, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and close family friends. 
Each year, we host events encouraging members of the society to gather together, engage with our school, learn, and share experiences.

Past Grandparents and Special Friends Society events have included:

  • A moderated tour of the Contemporary Jewish Museum
  • A meet-and-greet event on the night before graduation
  • Lunch and learn events
  • Holiday events with our Head of School, Rabbi Howard Ruben
If you are a grandparent or special friend, or know of someone who is and might be interested in these events, please contact us at
