About The Jewish Learning Connection

The Jewish Learning Connection is a Cleveland-based full service outreach organization offering a wide array of educational and social programming. Our goal is to connect Jews with their Jewish heritage by both establishing and maintaining quality learning opportunities for every Jew throughout Northeast Ohio, regardless of background or affiliation; and by enabling them to experience the joy and vibrancy of Torah and traditional Judaism.

Programs are offered in a warm and inviting atmosphere, thus fostering spiritual growth and greater involvement in the Jewish Community. JLC offers adult Jewish education courses in subject areas including Talmud, Chumash, Kashrut, and Hebrew. Our weekly learning oppurtunities are listed under Classes.
