Deepen your Jewish learning experience with short but chock-full-of-information courses that will have you thinking in a whole new way.

jLearn will begin during the week of March 8th. The times of each class will be determined to accommodate the schedules of participants. 

For more information please contact Rochel Chein.

All texts and readings will be presented in English. The classes are crafted in such a manner as to be equally accessible and intriguing to students with advanced Judaic knowledge, those with no prior knowledge, and all in between.
