Among dozens of people from every synagogue, temple and age group in Louisville – the new Jewish Learning Center, 110 Dupont Cir., officially opened its doors and held a ribbon cutting and affixed the mezuzot to each of its doors on Tuesday, September 6. Mayor Greg Fischer sent a representative with a proclamation honoring the Jewish Learning Center for its innovation in education and welcoming it to the Louisville educational community.
Rabbi Avrohom Litvin spoke of the unifying power of Jewish learning. He shared a vision of providing educational opportunities for adults, seniors, teens and children. “Learning Torah is an inheritance of every Jewish man, woman and child,” he said, and encourage everyone in the community to at least stop by the Jewish Learning Center to familiarize themselves with some of its many offerings and classes.
Immediately after the festivities, classes were held to familiarize participants with the innovative teaching methods offered at JLearn. Together with the Jewish Learning Institute program, JLearn will provide participants with 3000 years of Jewish guidance on modern day issues and experiences. Classes will cover topics such as How to Attain Happiness, The Steps to Success, Life Lessons from the Prophets, Israel Then and Now, Hebrew Reading, Kabbalah, Meditation and much more.
Beginning in November there will be classes every Monday and Thursday evening at 7 p.m. Prior to November, (due to the Jewish Holidays), there will be classes on Thursday nights beginning at 7:30 p.m. All are welcome.
