Jewish Learning Community (JLC)

Sundays, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
& Tuesdays, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Our educational model aims to enrich and empower each child’s Jewish journey through developmentally appropriate learning experiences.

We foster learning journeys through an encounter with a lived Judaism rich in ideas, ritual, text and practice.

Through an encounter with their own experiences in Judaism, and in collaboration with their peers and families, our children learn through experience, and get to know, act and feel the Judaism of our past, our present and our future.

Our experiential framework develops our students’ capacity to express their skills for creativity, collaboration and intellectual thinking. Our students participate in meaningful exploration and exhibition that shape their personal Jewish voice, responsibility, and identity. Our curriculum weaves the integration of core Judaic knowledge, the acquisition of Hebrew language and the process of personal reflection. Our students engage meaningfully in their tradition, while developing their personal stake in their Jewish future.
We invite you to explore what our Jewish Learning Community (JLC) has to offer.

Our Community


Every Sunday at 9:00 a.m., our students and parents gather together to participate in a Havdallah service. Havdallah celebrates our transition from a restful Shabbat to the creative work of the rest of the week. Open to the whole community, this Havdallah experience offers us time to share with one another, and reflect while learning the skills of this ritual activity. Together we bring in the new week with song, music, activities and stories.

Family Engagement

Throughout the year, the JLC families participate in different programs and events as a whole family. Family engagement provides both students and parents with meaningful connected moments of learning and celebration.
The JLC also provides Shabbat experiences throughout the year including our Annual Kabbalat Shabbat for the entire school to come together, pray, celebrate, and eat as a community.

Parent Involvement

The JLC firmly believes that the partnership between the administration, faculty, and our parents helps build and strengthen our community and our learning. We encourage and welcome parent feedback and involvement. Please contact JLC Director Amir Orbach at for volunteer opportunities.
