Welcome to the Agency for Jewish Learning
The AJL continues to work to nurture a thriving Jewish community in the greater Pittsburgh area. AJL’s mission is to build the community's capacity to deliver inspiring Jewish learning experiences to the the largest number of people this year, and in years to come.
AJL works to inspire students and families in our synagogues, connect teens with Jewish learning and community, and to engage families in Jewish life. We embrace the sacred legacy of lifelong Jewish learning and foster connections to Israel and the Jewish people. We believe that Jewish education is not about filling a vessel with knowledge; it is about kindling a flame.
AJL works with many partner schools, early childhood programs, agencies, synagogues, and community programs to realize these goals. AJL’s Board of Directors and our skilled professional staff work to build the community’s capacity to deliver inspiring Jewish learning experiences to the largest number of people. Classes and programs for individual learners are offered in collaboration with many of our partner institutions. Building on many years of learning and by connecting extensively with resource providers on the national level, AJL is a source of leadership and innovation.
