Each student's Jewish

journey is unique.

Teens experience the

freedom to reach beyond

the familiar for

answers - to prepare

them to

become leaders in the

Jewish community.

This is JTConnect.

Welcome to Jewish Teen Learning Connection - JTConnect!

We are so excited for you to join us on our journey... and what a journey it is. We are growing and changing, learning and exploring, socializing, connecting and having fun, together.

JTConnect is a private nonprofit program for Jewish teens. Teens engage in Jewish programming on Monday nights in West Hartford or at special events throughout the year. The entire Greater Hartford community is invited to visit. Teens, come and see how we can enhance your Jewish journey.

At the heart of everything we do is an understanding of how—and what—teens like to learn and do. We inspire our teens to become passionate Jewish leaders and active participants in the Jewish community. We instill in them a love for all that Judaism represents. Satisfy your curiosity with any one of JTConnect’s programs!


Service learning and flexible scheduling are keys to how 6th-12th Graders learn at JTConnect in the 2013-2014 school year.

JTCentral - Monday Nights at Beth El Temple - Open to everyone, these courses allow for flexibility, even for the busiest teen. 5 terms will be offered this year with themes ranging from exploring ideas of Jewish identity, community and tradition to Judaism and the arts.  Each term runs 6-7 weeks, allowing teens to work Jewish learning into their schedules.  Courses meet weekly on Monday from 7:00 - 8:40 p.m. in West Hartford.

JTCares: Teens Making a Difference – New this year for 8th-12th Graders.  JTCares is a series of community service opportunities held once a month on Sunday afternoons.  Located throughout the community, teens will meet from 1 - 4 p.m. for lunch and learn followed by a social action project.

JTWOW! - New Offerings and Old Favorites - Ziplining and New York City join popular favorites like the Hanukkah Party Bus, Shabbat Woks! and J-Serve.  Join us for one or all of these great events.

Just For Girls - Sometimes you just need an evening with the girls.  Our 3 Rosh Hodesh:  It's A Girl Thing! groups give that opportunity.  Looking to bring mom with you?  Join us for one or all of the Gurlz J.A.M. programs, a series of unique, interactive workshops for Jewish Middle School girls and their moms (or Jewish adult female role models).
