We offer the following ways to reduce your tuition:
1. Register early. For a $5 discount, pre-register online or by email at least 48 hours before the class session.

2. Bring a friend for free.   Bring along a new student who takes out a Jewish Study Center membership,  and you can take that evening’s class for free. 

3.  Special offer for those 30 and under: Pay $30 and you'll get a ticket good for any six classes this term! Just show it for admission. (It's still a good idea to register for classes so we know you're coming; classes with no pre-registrations may be cancelled.) You can buy the ticket online or at the door.

4.Take advantage of our volunteer program!  If you would like to take classes but tuition is a barrier, please contact us about receiving free tuition in return for volunteering your time. We are a teaching and learning community and want no one turned away for financial reasons.  Contact us at: info@jewishstudycenter or (202) 332-1221.

The Jewish Study Center mourns the passing October 25 of Rabbi Janice Garfunkel, its friend and former director.
In cooperation with her family, we have agreed to establish a Rabbi Janice Garfunkel Memorial Fund, which will support a lecture or other educational event on a subject that held meaning for Janice in her life and work. The event will take place on the occasion of her yahrtzeit, either once or annually, as funds permit.
Those who wish to donate in her memory can do so via this website by clicking on DONATE or by filling out the Donation Form and sending it in.
