Learning never stops

From books to experiences, travel to study – everyone learns differently, connects uniquely, and grows distinctly.

At the JCC, we’re committed to ensuring that education is a lifelong journey, and that we serve as a destination for Jewish life, education, and engagement.

From Israel to Torah, the horrors of the Holocaust to the joys of holiday, the calendar is full of meaningful classes, programs, and events to complement your journey. Working with partners near (with clergy and civic leaders) and far (Israeli emissaries and international experts) we educate, entertain, and enrich the lives of our members and guests.

Some examples include “Back to the Sources”, our decades-running program that dives deep into Jewish history on a semester-long schedule, plus author visits, film screenings, lectures, and book clubs just to name a few.
