Lisa F. Brill Institute for Jewish Learning

The MJCCA's Lisa F. Brill Institute for Jewish Learning is Atlanta's largest adult Jewish education program. It offers a broad range of diverse learning opportunities taught by some of Atlanta's most outstanding Jewish scholars, rabbis, and educators. Introduction to Judaism classes are offered for everyone interested in beginning to explore Judaism. The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning, a two-year non-denominational adult Jewish program, features a wide range of classes for all wishing to delve further into their Jewish education. Continuing Jewish Education classes are ideal for people who have a passion for learning and enjoy expanding their horizons. Also, make plans to join us throughout the year for our Lunch 'n Learn series featuring local rabbis.

Interfaith Programs

Are you curious about Judaism? Are you interested in learning about Jewish life? Would you like to connect with other individuals and families who are also transitioning to living a life based on Jewish values and traditions. Our Interfaith Programs are designed just for you - to help you feel more comfortable with Jewish traditions and to bring the joy of Jewish customs and traditions into your life.

Besser Holocaust Memorial Garden

The Besser Holocaust Memorial Garden serves as a beacon of memory and hope. Located at the MJCCA's Zaban Park, this memorial is comprised of nine sculptures in addition to an eternal flame (ner tamid). The sculptures depict different aspects of Jewish life before, during, and after the Holocaust. The Besser Holocaust Memorial, though a reminder of atrocities, stands in the middle of vibrant Jewish living to serve as a testament to Jewish faith, fortitude, and hope.
