Lehrhaus has been the Bay Area’s premier adult Jewish education resource for 44 years, serving well over 110,000 students in over 6,000 courses, seminars and study tours. We have offered programs in synagogues, JCCs, nursing homes, day schools, churches, book stores, and online to students around the world. We’re here for you, and we’re here to stay.

Through intellectual openness, dialogue and a pluralistic platform, Lehrhaus Judaica exists to deepen Jewish learning across the entire adult community. Jewish literacy forges our Jewish identity and sustains us as a people.

How You Can Make a Difference: Join the Lehrhaus Legacy Family

To succeed in the next 40 years, Lehrhaus will need a solid financial foundation to build the new learning environment of the 21st century. The best teachers, the latest educational technologies, and our ever-expanding variety of programs and services will make unprecedented demands on our resources.
