Knowledge is strength; you can't pass on what you don't know.

Our program is comprised of several semesters throughout the year. Each semester offers you numerous courses on a wide range of intriguing Jewish topics.  Completion of courses will enable you to apply and receive subsidies toward the JEC-U Trip.

Building community is an important part of the JEC-U program. All participants are invited for a light dinner and drinks to catch up with friends before the class begins.


There's no better way to learn something than to experience it firsthand. Learn with us then travel to Israel and bring your learning to life. We created an incentive program to keep your commitment strong. Complete the semesters necessary to earn "miles" towards a JEC-U trip.
