Jewish Learning

Jewish ideas are universal ideas. Doing Jewish learning with the JCC is an interconnected experience that builds community, opens the mind and uplifts the spirit. 

Our programs focus on words and ideas from local and national leaders discussing everything from Intro to Judaism to the important topics of our times to Israel-themed performances and events.
