Located in Granada Hills, J.E.T.S. (Jewish Education Trade School) Synagogue was established in 2002 to provide a place of worship and religious instruction to the unaffiliated Jewish community. In 2005, J.E.T.S. established a trade school to serve as an alternative to yeshiva education for at-risk Jewish young men ages 16 to 19. Upon completion of the full course of study, students earn a GED, college credits, and a job placement.
