The Jewish Learning Center (JLC) is an innovative and deepened approach to Judaic and Hebrew studies. Using the entire temple campus as an important tool to creating enriching and meaningful study for our students ages kindergarten through 12thgrade, a new and exciting curriculum has emerged.
Our curriculum embodies the temple’s Five Core Values and the Five Foundations of Jewish Learning as developed by Rabbi Karyn Kedar.
Our Five Core Values are:
Avodah(meaningful workship and spiritual practice)
G’milut Chasadim(acts of loving kindness)
The Five Foundations of Jewish Learning are:
Joy and Delight
Every lesson and every activity experienced by our students will be based on these Values and Foundations. The integrated Judaic/Hebrew curriculum deepens these experiences.
The learning environment reflects the way our students learn today, and includes individualized learning, independent study, and community learning.

Students and their families choose from three tracks at the end of their 4thgrade year.

The mission of this portal is to create proficient prayer-participants who will read, connect, and interact with the prayer service and their Torah portion in a way that resonates with their personal interests and passions.
Team Tzedek: the obligation to give away time, money and kindness. The mission of this portal is to create a community committed to improving the world through acts of loving kindness, community service, and advocacy for social change.
My Israel: the land + personal family experience. The mission of this portal is to cultivate a meaningful personal relationship with Israel’s history, culture, and people through traditional and experiential learning, both at home and on the ground in Israel.
