Our Mission Statement 

 

The Jewish Enrichment Center (JEC) is a unique and welcoming home for people in their 20s and 30s to come together to learn, socialize, and get inspired. Come take classes on Jewish philosophy, have the Bar/Bat Mitzvah you never had, improve your Hebrew, travel to Israel and Europe, learn one on one, or just meet great people at a Shabbat meal. Whether you're looking to deepen your existing Jewish knowledge, or you want to connect with Jewish community, the JEC's program options are endless and we've got something for everyone.
