Family Learning

Children’s learning is the responsibility of the parents. Parents you have responded admirably to by choosing to continue your child’s education through the Galinsky Academy. All of a child’s learning does not occur within the hours provided in “structured” programming. The JJC is committed to helping you weave “Jewish” into the experiences you and your child have on a regular basis. While below we describe many of the programs offered here at the Jacksonville Jewish Center, you are invited and encouraged to reach out to Michelle Penson, the Director of Membership & Youth Engagement.

The Jacksonville community is a proud partner with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation in bringing PJ Library to the youth of our community. Please sign up for PJ Library at where children ages 6 months to 8 will receive a Jewish book to build your own library.

For children age 8.5 through 11 register for PJ Our Way, where children select a book monthly to build their own library based on interest. Visit for more details.
