Jewish Learning Venture innovates programs that help people live connected Jewish lives. It is the catalyst for change that strengthens the institutions and families of the Greater Philadelphia Jewish community.
This network of synagogues and Jewish organizations is just starting to form, taking a deep dive into (re) engaging Baby Boomers in Jewish communal programs.
Working with synagogue leaders, we are developing methods to guide families through the bumpy life transitions, such as preschool to religious school or b'nai mitzvah training to middle and high school learning.
We take the show on the road! We offer consulting and training to Jewish organizations in other communities in our areas of expertise. We are reaching new organizations through our inclusion, innovation, and family engagement work.
