Passport to Jewish Learning

Passport to Jewish Learning (PJL) takes the traditional Jewish education model to a new place where social action, Shabbat and holiday celebration, Jewish history and Israel, family education, and Rodef Shalom intergenerational community building are top priority. By creating experiential learning opportunities at every turn, all participants are engaged in an amazing Jewish journey.

Our Passport to Jewish Learning program has 3 components:

Shabbat Supper Club: Family Shabbat Dinner and ruach; One Friday/Holiday/Havdallah a month.

Sunday Social Action Day: Doing Mitzvot; One Sunday a month (Occasionally on another day to accommodate organizations we work with).

Classroom: Reading, writing, prayer, vocabulary, Torah learning and discussion.
