Adult education opportunities with AJL

Adult Education at the AJL is rooted in the Jewish tradition of lifelong learning. We collaborate with a variety of local Jewish organizations to present opportunities to learners of all ages in the greater Pittsburgh area. We facilitate and support programming and other types of educational engagement that build capacity for synagogues, the Jewish Community Center, and many other institutions and organizations. (Classes for 2014-2015 are being developed.)

AJL also sponsors Tikkun Leil Shavuot in conjunction with the JCC and the Jewish Federation, where local rabbis present annually on a variety of topics to more than 400 participants.

In keeping with AJL’s mission of building community capacity, programs are offered wherever possible in collaboration with synagogues, the Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh (JCC), the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, and other organizations.

The AJL admits students of any race, nationality and ethnic origin to its programs. However, adherence to the Jewish faith is a requirement of some of our programs.



“Adult education ought to be a quest for forgotten questions
and an endeavor to relate our tradition to those questions.
Our effort must be to interpret Judaism in terms of human existence.”
Abraham Joshua Heschel
