Generation Celebration

At the Jewish Academy of Orlando, we are true believers of FAMILY. Our yearly tradition of treating our grandparents as VIP’s to share the morning with their grandkids. The program begins with a wonderful breakfast, followed by a broadcast of the WJAO daily news. The students and their grandparents or special friends then participate in various activities throughout the school, including time in their homeroom, Innovation Lab, library, art room, photo booth and Judaic Studies classes. The program concludes with a special Shabbat assembly featuring songs by the students, video and more! Our grandparents are our VIP's at each year's Generation Celebration event at Jewish Academy of Orlando.

Last year, on Wednesday, Dec. 21, the last day before the students went on their Winter Break, almost 100 grandparents and special friends joined the students of the Jewish Academy of Orlando for Generation Celebration, an annual event, to share their amazing school with family and friends.


"At the Jewish Academy of Orlando, the students value their relationships with their grandparents and special friends," said Alan Rusonik, Head of School. "It was wonderful to watch the welcoming of everyone from near and far to share and truly celebrate the academic excellence and Jewish pride the students receive at the school.”
