Since the great Babylonian yeshivot in Sura and Pumpedita, and in recent centuries with the revival of the yeshiva system in Eastern Europe, the study halls of Jewish scholarship have become the centerpiece of the Jewish community. This year, our staff of scholarly rabbis will bring you a unique first-hand experience of yeshiva-style study.

Immerse yourself in the ancient texts of our tradition in an authentic yeshiva-style experience. Explore the intellectual rigors of the inner realm of Talmudic thought, probe the depths of Chassidic philosophy, and discover the biblical and logical underpinnings of modern-day Jewish law. A fine blend of chavruta-style, one-on-one learning and in-depth, text based lectures.

Aramaic for “companionship,” chavruta is a traditional form of Jewish learning where two people explore texts together. The learning is a dialogue between the participants, in which they discuss and debate the meaning of texts to craft their own meaning and ownership.


The Jewish Learning Institute is the adult education arm of Chabad-Lubavitch and a partner agency of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg. As the preeminent provider of adult Jewish learning in Winnipeg, JLI's mission is to make Jewish learning accessible and personally meaningful to every Jew, regardless of background or affiliation.
