About the Jewish Learning Lab at Westchester Reform Temple
An innovative Jewish educational program for students in Kindergarten through the 12th grade, the Jewish Learning Lab (JLL) works to advance Westchester Reform Temple’s mission “to ensure the perpetuation of the Jewish people and to cultivate a love of our Jewish heritage: God, Torah and Israel.” Students not only form an understanding and appreciation for Judaism and its lifelong traditions, but they also form a connection to a warm, inclusive community that enhances the learning experience.
The Jewish Learning Lab’s mission is to kindle a lifelong love of Jewish learning and living in children and youth in the WRT community. In achieving this mission, the JLL aspires to:
Support the development of a strong Jewish identity, strengthened with Hebrew language, rooted in Jewish tradition, nurtured by the study of Judaism, and guided by Jewish values.
Create enduring and joyful Jewish memories, bringing Torah to life and inspiring Jewish dreams.
Celebrate both the richness of our traditions and the limitless possibilities of innovation, preparing us to engage with the unique blessings and challenges of being Jewish in the 21st century.
Foster the development of an inclusive and caring community, one that reflects the diversity of Jewish life today and is empowered to serve those in need.
