It’s a workout. For your brain.

The Jewish Literacy Project is a platform for the study of Jewish writings, traditions, history, and culture through an approach that is intellectually challenging and existentially engaging.

JLP is a unique learning program where participants lend their individual perspective and insight to analyze, probe and debate Jewish texts. The program promotes Jewish learning through enlightened and entertaining discussion groups in a no-pressure, non-judgmental atmosphere.

Delve into tradition and grapple with life’s most important issues in a stimulating, thought provoking environment regardless of your background.
