Welcome to the

Jewish Learning Collaborative

We are a community of lifelong learners. We know that making time and space to explore new ideas is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves.

Here at the JLC, we don’t focus on WHAT you’re learning - that’s completely up to you. We celebrate learning for learning’s sake. Because it inspires creativity, because it brings meaning to our daily lives, because it’s fun, and because it brings us together.

How it Works

You Choose Your Topic

You choose what you want to learn based on your interests, questions, or goals. Some learners choose a Jewish topic, like Jewish law or holidays. Others explore a universal topic through a Jewish lens, like gender equality or parenthood. Choose a topic that feels relevant to you, and if you aren’t sure, your educator can guide you.

You Choose Your Teacher

You choose a teacher who fits not only your interests, but your personality. Our teachers span the denominational and professional spectrum, but share one common ideology: they are non-judgemental, and here to lend a hand as you explore. If you need help finding a great fit, our JLC team will match you based on your learning style and interests.

You Set the Pace

You pick the timing and the frequency, anywhere from once a week to once a month, all during work hours. You can change the pace of your learning whenever you like, and talk with your educator about scaling up or scaling back as your workflow changes. At the JLC, we believe lifelong learning starts as a habit.

What Does
Personalized Jewish
Learning Look Like?

Personalized Jewish learning is learning, on your terms. You determine the subject, the pace, and the approach. Whether a Jewish topic or Jewish lens, text-focused or conversational, deep-dive or beginner basics - you set the tone for your learning.

Here at the Jewish Learning Collaborative, we believe personalized learning has key 3 principles:

It’s consistent.

Like other forms of self care, learning is more meaningful and easier to stick with when you have a routine. JLC learners commit to a regular schedule: weekly, every other week, every three weeks, or once a month (1-4 times per month). Choose a rhythm that suits your needs, and you can always adjust as you find your flow.

It’s relevant.

You choose topics that speak to you, your life, or your work. If you don’t know where to start or how to choose, your educator can help!

It’s customized.

Your learning is tailor made for you. It should reflect your unique mix of interests, questions, goals, and challenges. After all, lifelong learning is about gaining knowledge and skills that enhance your life. Your focus can evolve as you grow, and you can always shift directions when you’re ready for a change.
