Welcome to JLP!

The Jewish Learning Project (JLP) is Congregation Beth Yeshurun's Adult Learning Program. Our JLP sessions offer a variety of spiritual, intellectual, and stimulating topics for you to choose from. Sessions are on Sunday mornings and are open to the public and free of charge.

Classes meeting this week:

Invitation to Judaism | 9-10a | Instructor: Rabbi Steven Morgen

This class is open to anyone, but is especially designed for newcomers to Judaism to learn the basics of our way of life, our way of thinking about God, and our way of looking at the world. A separate syllabus outlines the class sessions and topics. Reading list includes Anita Diamant Choosing a Jewish Life, Harold Kushner To Life!, George Robinson Essential Judaism, and Joseph Telushkin Jewish Literacy.

See the year-long curriculum/class schedule here.
