The Fuchsberg Jerusalem Center (FJC) is located in the heart of Jerusalem just five minutes on foot from all of the city center’s shops, restaurants, and cultural institutions and a 15 minute walk to the Old City.
Though it was founded in 1972, the history of some of its primary buildings date back much further. These include Rappaport House which houses the Epstein, Geller, David CY Beit Midrash, the Alan J. Tichnor Residence Hall & Learning Center, the Rabbi Jerome M. Epstein House, and the historic David and Goldie Zucker Synagogue .
At the Conservative Yeshiva, those seeking an authentic and dynamic Torah learning experience can study with our world-class teachers. Hundreds of students of all ages and from around the world join us throughout the year — both online and in-person — to take part in a wide range of classes and educational opportunities.
Thousands of learners globally subscribe to receive our online learning resources including Mishnah Yomit, Daf Shevui, and Torah Sparks. In addition to receiving daily Torah direct to your inbox, additional subscription options include weekly LIVE classes with Talmud scholar, Dr. Joshua Kulp, and Bible scholar, Bex Stern Rosenblatt.
Our on-site synagogue is Jerusalem’s focal point for community gathering and ritual innovation. FJC’s Meshorerim fellowship integrates diverse musical traditions in order to give community members at all levels of engagement a rich musical and communal vocabulary. Locals and visitors alike join us to pray , observe the holidays, and celebrate life cycle events.
We train community leaders through our enrichment courses led by experienced and renowned experts in the field. Rabbis, cantors, and lay leaders learn to lead and connect with their communities with classes such as: Piyyut (Hebrew Liturgical Poetry), Nusach for all occasions, and more. By honing these synagogue skills, students and community leaders are ready to build and sustain generations of meaningful Jewish practice.
FJC operates tailor-made immersive Israel experiences for day school students. Partnering with some of the leading community day schools in North America, the center works closely with each school to develop a program that suits the unique needs of its own student body and curriculum. Students in middle school and high school travel to Israel with their class to connect deeply with the land, people, and society.
The Agron Guest House, run by the Israel Youth Hostel Association, can house over 200 guests at a time. It is the home base for many of our youth programs as they explore Judaism, the country, and themselves.
The Agron Guest House offers a full dining experience, meaning that the FJC is ready to host groups for Shabbat, a seminar, or lecture with a meal included. Our tailor-made programs for school trips and unique sessions for synagogue tours will ensure that participants get the most out of their time at the FJC.
