Jewish Education


Welcome to the first Jewish Federation of Delaware Hub for Jewish Education.  One of the lessons that we have learned from this past year's pandemic is that we have a thirst for community and a desire to learn. We're here to provide both. Wherever you are in your stage of life or on your Jewish journey, we are here to support you. Whether it is an already existing study group or a course being taught from Israel, you can learn about opportunities and decide to try something new and enriching for yourself or for your family.  Please give us feedback as we periodically present new possibilities for Jewish education in our community. For information, contact Rabbi Ellen Bernhardt JCRC Director
