- Jewish Family Workshop serves the greater MetroWest and provides affordable high-quality Jewish education while accommodating the schedules of busy, well-rounded children. Our curriculum provides our children with a sense of Jewish identity, introduces them to the rich history and culture of our People, and provides a solid foundation for Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Classes are held in Ashland, MA at the Mindess School. There are generally 5-12 students per class. JFW has a tradition of responsive teachers and interested, committed parents.
