An introduction from our CEO
Jewish LearningWorks advances Jewish learning that enriches lives, and that enables the learner to flourish as a human being and as a Jew.
What We've Accomplished
Who We Are
Our team of master educators and support professionals provide educators and parents with the knowledge, skills and tools needed to transform the next generation of Jews - a generation with the power to engage in repairing our broken world.
With your help we are enabling children of all ages to engage with the world through Jewish life and ideas. Every day we inspire teachers and parents with a customized professional development initiative, cutting-edge parent resources, hands-on training and sponsorship of the Jewish Community Library.
We are grateful to the Federations, Foundations and individuals below whose investment has sustained our work over many decades.
