New! Jewish Learning Institute
Opens in St. Augustine


Beginning this fall, the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute will open its doors in St. Augustine. 

JLI is not only the largest network of Jewish adult education, it is also unparalleled among other Jewish institutions for its use of cutting-edge pedagogic techniques to unlock the wisdom and life-messages found within Judaism’s ancient texts.

Founded on the understanding that people have different minds and different learning modalities, JLI incorporates personalization, visual aids, text analysis, peer discussion, learning activities, lectures, and more, to address each of student’s emotional, procedural, exploratory, and analytical learning styles, in order to convey the material in a manner that will be assimilated by all.

JLI prides itself in its promise of “an aha! moment in every lesson,” and according to JLI’s central offices in Brooklyn, participants have come to expect this, which they say explains their unusually high return rate from course to course. 

JLI courses have become synonymous with Jewish wisdom that is relevant topeople’s lives, regardless of background or affiliation. For the 2017–2018 academic year, JLI will be offering three new courses in St. Augustine, in two locations: In November, Great Debates in Jewish History; in January, The Art of Communication; and in May, Rethinking Everything We Know About Our Universe.

All JLI courses are open to the entire Jewish community, and people do not need to be a member of any particular synagogue or temple in order to attend. As an inaugural special offer, local community members are welcome to register for the course and sample the first lesson free of charge, with no obligation to continue.
