What is JoLT?

JoLT: Jewish Learning Together is a cutting-edge Jewish learning program, the kind that has children and families clamoring for more. Like learning a sport, our children will not merely study the rules of the game, but rather will learn by doing. They will not be just spectators but rather participants, with a focus on what children are able to think, feel and do Jewishly. While we may occasionally use terms such as “school” and “classes” in relation to JoLT, we intend for the experience to be much more informal and experiential than traditional synagogue religious school educational programs.

Who Should Attend JoLT?

Participation in this experiential Shabbat learning program is encouraged for all Agudas children in grades K-6 (public/private & secular/parochial school students), providing the opportunity for our youth to create close and cohesive relationships irrespective of their weekday educational environments.

The manner in which students are divided by age will depend upon final enrollment.

When will JoLT Meet?

In consultation with the Education Committee and the JoLT staff, it was decided that the safest way to hold JoLT this fall is in a virtual manner. All classes will take place on Sundays. Hebrew for 3rd-6th graders will be from 4-4:30 pm; Judaics for K-2nd graders will be from 4:35-5:05 pm and Judaics for 3rd-6th graders will also be from 4:35-5:05 pm. The Education Committee will continue to monitor the situation and make changes as needed.
JoLT is still being offered to members for free! If you’d like to make a youth programming donation to the shul, click hereClick here for the Fall JoLT Calendar. The first day of JoLT is August 30th!
