The Jewish Learning Center (JLC) has been created in the tradition of masterful teachers establishing bonds with willing students pursuing intellectual and spiritual growth in their adult years. JLC courses are designed for students ranging from first-time learners to those with years of prior study. The Institute follows a powerful path of discovery and depth, touching the Jewish soul and often altering the life course of its learners. Participants in JLC courses share an experience of such magnitude that many form lasting bonds of close friendship and community.
The Rohr JLC is the largest institute of adult learning of its kind, teaching in 160 cities around the world. Its professionally conceived eight-week courses are taught through interactive dialogue accompanied by dynamic textbooks and dramatic audio-visual presentations.
A JLC teacher leads students toward fresh thinking about the world. He or she creates an environment that inspires feelings of hope, purpose, meaning, and value. JLC’s teaching is authentic and real. And it is all conveyed in a safe environment that embraces every student.
