SUSTENANCE FOR THE SOUL
Touching hearts, igniting souls and challenging minds
through transformative Jewish learning and living.
IJKL is one of the pre-eminent educational centers in South Florida offering multiple on ramps to meaningful and transformative Jewish learning and living for all ages.
If you are beginning -- or are already on -- the journey to spiritual enlightenment, then you will find a home with IJKL. We provide a loving environment to help you build a solid spiritual and theological foundation. For those seeking in-depth Jewish study, IJKL is a repository of deep insights and expansive ideas. You are invited to become part of our community of like minded seekers.
Jewish learning should inspire us to be our best selves and see ourselves and all of creation in the image of the Divine.
Pluralism is the celebration of our diversity of beliefs and practices. At IJKL, we seek to meet each learner where they are and help them sharpen their own unique Jewish identity.
At IJKL, every person regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation or background is included and seen as a sacred partner in creating our learning community.
As serious learners ourselves, teachers at IJKL seek to honor the integrity of the texts and traditions we study and teach. We also yearn to validate each person’s perspective, questions and insights with the same integrity.
Depth of Understanding
According to the sages there are four levels of Jewish learning. At IJKL we seek to go beyond the p’shat (basic meaning) and dig deeper to discover the eternal truths and profound wisdom that lie beneath the surface.
Jewish learning has always been a team sport. IJKL seeks to celebrate that heritage by building a learning community in which each person is a learner and a teacher.
We believe Jewish learning should inspire Jewish living. That’s why learning at IJKL seeks to empower each and every person to discover how Jewish texts speak to them and how their lives are enriched by Jewish learning.
