Excellence in Early Childhood Education


JLV workshops are the only Jewish source for professional development that earn Keystone Star Status

  • “Jewish Learning Venture has been a big asset to us in working our way through the Star system. The result is the high-quality program that we are providing to our children and their families." - Eileen Weingram, Director of Early Learning, Beth Sholom Congregation

  • “Feeling supported, having access to resources, and having input from a professional I trust and respect to help guide my work." - Congregational Director of Education, participant in JLV workshops

  • “This is an opportunity not only to learn from our colleagues but some of the best early childhood trainers in the area." - Beth Rabinowitz, Director of Early Childhood Education, Temple Sinai

  • “Knowing that if I have a question, need a resource, recommendation, etc, I can 'phone a friend' and get a response. Living and working in Delaware County, JLV is what keeps us connected." - Congregational Director of Education, participant in JLV workshops
