The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute

The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) has been created in the tradition of masterful teachers establishing bonds with willing students pursuing intellectual and spiritual growth in their adult years. JLI courses are designed for students ranging from first-time learners to those with years of prior study. The Institute follows a powerful path of discovery and depth, touching the Jewish soul and often altering the life course of its learners. Participants in JLI courses share an experience of such magnitude that many form lasting bonds of close friendship and community.

The Rohr JLI is the largest institute of adult learning of its kind, teaching in 300 cities around the world. Its professionally conceived eight-week courses are taught through interactive dialogue accompanied by dynamic textbooks and dramatic audio-visual presentations.

A JLI teacher leads students toward fresh thinking about the world. He or she creates an environment that inspires feelings of hope, purpose, meaning, and value. JLI’s teaching is authentic and real. And it is all conveyed in a safe environment that embraces every student. 


My son Malachai and I are thoroughly enjoying the informative and well researched ‘Survival of a Nation’ course structure, the additional supporting video footage and the relevance to 2017 Israeli politics. I highly recommend this course and wish that it was longer than the 6 weeks time frame.  - Sheralyn 

‘Survival of a Nation’: Great course well presented well structured. - Ruth
