We envision individuals and families engaged in dynamic, connected, Jewish life in Greater Philadelphia and beyond.
Jewish Learning Venture inspires and empowers people to make Jewish life, learning and community relevant and meaningful.
By 2022, Jewish Learning Venture will have empowered families raising children ages birth through high school to make Judaism meaningful and relevant for themselves and to see it as a path to living a thriving life. JLV will achieve this goal by developing and delivering innovative initiatives for families and for institutions that support families raising Jewish children.
This new “Wildly Important Goal” is currently in development. We are rolling it out now and working to align our strategic efforts around it. Moreover, JLV shares in the national move toward a paradigm shift for Jewish education to adopt thriving as the ultimate outcome of Jewish experiences.
