About Us

A place where learning has soul.
At the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute, we steadfastly deny that learning has to be dry and rote. We know that the richness of our tradition and the wisdom it offers can be exciting, even thrilling. We communicate with a deep sense of wonder and awe, because that is what we feel. We want you to walk away surprised, inspired, and knowing more about who we are as Jews, and who you are as an individual.

To see what we mean, and to boldly tackle some of the biggest questions that can be asked, give SoulQuest a try.

The Jewish Learning Institute

The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) has been created in the tradition of teachers establishing bonds with 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 of its learners. Participants in JLI courses share an experience of such magnitude that many form lasting ties of close friendship and community.

The Rohr JLI is the largest institute of adult learning of its kind, teaching in over 300 cities around the world. Its professionally conceived 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.
