Jewish Education Center of Cleveland - B'Tzelem

Welcome to the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland! In 1993, the Commission on Jewish Continuity was combined with the Bureau of Jewish Education (founded in 1924) to create the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland (JECC). The JECC directs the continuity work of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland and administers the multi-million dollar Fund for the Jewish Future, the endowment that continues to support continuity projects. The JECC ensure continuity in Cleveland by fostering and strengthening life-long Jewish learning in various settings and forms. Today, the JECC is at the cutting edge of educational practice, working with agencies, congregations and schools to develop and implement programs that dramatically improve our Jewish educational systems.

B’Tzelem: Jewish Teen Learning Companions is a pilot program of the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland designed to help create more inclusive Jewish classrooms. The program matches teen learning companions with students in our religious school whose comfort and competence with their Jewish learning would benefit from individual or small-group work. The participation of motivated teen companions provides another pathway for their deepened Jewish identity and involvement.
