The Rutland Jewish Center is a community that makes Jewish learning for all age groups its priority.
Every event, program, class, tutorial, meeting, meal or prayer service the RJC holds or sponsors is seen as presenting holy opportunities for growth, teaching and learning. We thus agree with the sages of late antiquity, who in turn followed Rabbi Akiva's wisdom, which we paraphrase into our own language:
"Study is the most important thing, for it leads to Godly action and deed."
—Babylonian Talmud tractate Kiddushin 40b
