Welcome to Yavneh!  We believe Jewish learning should be full of joy. 

  • We plan meaningful engaging experiences for all our learners ages 3-13. 

  • Our program meets from 9:30-12:30 on Sundays at the Digital Pioneers Academy 709 12th Street SE. 

  • Our core program for Preschool-3rd grade meets from 9:30-11:30 and students are encouraged to stay for Bonus Yavneh from 11:30-12:30 which is a fun thematic learning experience. 

  • Our program for 4th-6th graders meets from 9:30-12:30 each Sunday. 

  • 7th graders meet with Rabbi Hannah from 10:30-12:30 about two Sundays a month.  They also have the opportunity to work at Yavneh as junior madrichim (teen assitants) during the time the seventh grade class doesn't work.

Yavneh COVID Protocols

In holding with the Jewish value of pikuah nefesh, saving a life, our primary objective this year is to keep our students and staff safe.  We also believe that in-person programming is important for the quality of learning, for the social engagement of our students, and for spiritual flourishing.  

Yavneh has adopted the following protocols for the school year to ensure that our community is as safe as possible when we convene.  Because we will follow guidance issued by the CDC, OSSE, and other appropriate authorities, and because that guidance is likely to evolve over time, these protocols are subject to change.

  • All of our teachers and staff are already vaccinated.  All eligible students must be fully vaccinated or request an exemption.  Vaccination documentation can be sent to and exemption requests should be sent to  

  • Our COVID mitigation strategies may include masking, keeping window open to increase air flow, air purifiers and distancing.  Precautions may change throughout a school year as the situation in DC changes.  

  • We ask that everyone stay home when they are feeling unwell to prevent the spread of disease.  The symptoms of COVID present as similar to cold symptoms.  When in doubt, please stay home. 

  • If your child has been directed to isolate or quarantine, they may not return to Yavneh until they have a negative test and their quarantine period has passed.  Again, when in doubt, please stay home.

We are eager to help our community navigate any concerns they may have about these protocols.  If you have any questions at all, please reach out to Melissa Werbow, Education Director, at
