Education at every age.

Looking to learn something new? Look no further. Enlivening Jewish education runs the gamut at the JCC, from classes in text study, ethics and holidays to cooking and the arts. We are in dynamic partnership with Jewish agencies and synagogues, presenting community-wide learning opportunities such as ENGAGE!, Melton and yearly spirituality retreats. We are also home to the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute, a project of Chabad of Greater St. Paul.
