A sampling of resources that provide more information on Jewish learning.

Some amazing Jewish learning programs:

The Skirball Cultural Center was established in Los Angeles in 1996 to promote Jewish heritage and American democratic ideals. The Skirball Center in NY aims to link liberal Jews to Jewish study that is relevant and meaningful. If you don’t live in LA or NYC, you can still take in some fabulous educational podcasts:

Teva Learning Center: The Teva Learning Center, North America’s foremost Jewish Environmental Education Institute, is a nondenominational educational service for participants from throughout the Jewish community.

Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center: Provides retreat experiences that inspire a love of Judaism, strengthen the bonds of community, and cultivate leadership. These programs model an approach to Jewish tradition that gives participants tools for spiritual fulfillment, deep learning, and social engagement.

Romemu: Judaism for Mind, Body & Spirit: A welcoming home where men and women participate equally and fully in song, dance, learning, and praying. It is described as “an oasis in New York City where you can focus on your heart and catch your breath.”

Two great online sites:

Jewish Learning Podcasts: Visit here to learn about dozens of Jewish podcasts that cover everything from film and comedy to politics and recreation.

My Jewish Learning: Visit this well-written and thoughtful website to get clear explanations on the Jewish holidays, cultural practices, life events, philosophies, and so on.

For Jewish women who love learning through books:

HBI Conversations is a program that sparks discussion and builds community by bringing authors and filmmakers whose work focuses on Judaism and gender to speak to Conversations groups. Intimate groups of 25 to 30 meet in private homes and split their time between author presentations and lively discussion.

Hadassah Book Club is a unique opportunity for Hadassah members to explore a wide range of ideas through reading, much like Henrietta Szold did in the very earliest days of Hadassah.

At the time of publication, all of these links work. We apologize if they stop working in the future. Sometimes links “go dead,” and there is nothing we can technically do about it.
