Throughout its rich history, The Jewish Center has prided itself on its advanced educational initiatives, offering engaging and relevant courses on a wide variety of Jewish topics. By opening multiple portals of entry into the world of study, our goal is to make the study of Torah and the pursuit of wisdom accessible to our members and the broader Jewish community. To that end, our mission is threefold:

TO CHALLENGE our members and participants to push beyond their comfort zones of Jewish knowledge by confronting modernity and exploring the profundities of difficult life issues.

TO EMPOWER our members and participants by engaging them in an ongoing conversation with the texts that form the backbone of our rich tradition.

TO INSPIRE our members and participants to deepen their commitment to study by making it part of their daily and weekly routines.

Borrowing from the University model, JCU recasts our highly successful educational program into a more tightly-organized structure. By broadening and varying our course offerings, attendees are able to find classes best suited to their individual preferences and schedules. 

JCU helps expand the orbit of our current network of attendees. While JC members enjoy the benefits of preferential registration, JCU is also accessible to members of the broader New York Jewish community. As such, JCU helps The Jewish Center achieve its mission of being the spiritual, intellectual and social center for each of our members as well as a Center for Jewish Life and Learning that is welcoming to all.
