Learn With Us

The Center for Jewish Learning (CJL) is an integral part of our community engagement efforts at the Jewish Federation of St. Louis. One of our core commitments is to expand and strengthen an engaged, vibrant, and flourishing Jewish community, and the CJL offers ongoing opportunities for us to come together and broaden our understanding of Jewish life, history, and spirituality.

By encouraging interaction and collaboration, the Center for Jewish Learning:

  • Facilitates and convene the Jewish community around issues pertaining to Jewish education;
  • Provides Jewish educational opportunities for individuals and institutional support for educational organizations;
  • Enriches existing community educational programming; and
  • Serves as a catalyst for new initiatives.
