Fierverker Jewish Learning Community (FJLC)
Our Fierverker Jewish Learning Community offers rich, engaging Jewish educational experiences for children in Kindergarten through 7th grades. The goals of our programs are to bring our students closer to Judaism, provide them with a strong Jewish identity, and kindle a lifetime love of Jewish learning. We accomplish this through engaging experiences that foster a deep sense of Jewish community among the students and their families.

The Fierverker Jewish Learning Community was a recipient of LeV, Getting to the Heart of Jewish Education, a grant from Jewish Learning Venture. LeV is a project whose goal is to transform Jewish education for elementary school age children and their families. Our process with the LeV project has taught us that one of the best ways to reach our children with rich Jewish experiences is through the exploration of Jewish values. To that end, each month the entire Fierverker Jewish Learning Community has the opportunity to explore one Jewish value that is connected to the participants' learning of holidays, mitzvot, Torah and prayer. Participants of The Fierverker Jewish Learning Community are challenged each month to incorporate that month's value into their daily lives. Each participant who completes the monthly challenge receives a special mensch award.
In addition to our focus on Jewish values, The Fierverker Jewish Learning Community provides participants with rich experiences of Jewish tradition and culture. Our program is designed to develop fluency in Hebrew reading as well as familiarity, comfort and a general understanding of Jewish liturgy.
