Our Name

Jewish tradition teaches that there are 70 facets of the Torah. Our name, Studio 70, reflects our commitment to creating a space where all learners—children, adults, parents, and teachers—can find their own way to meaningful Jewish expression.

Our Mission

We seek to inspire and nourish a collective commitment to Jewish living and learning for children, families educators.

Our Vision

Studio 70 aims to transform the landscape of Jewish learning opportunities in order to foster more powerful Jewish learning and living in North America. We do this through innovating and incubating program models within a learning laboratory, and contributing new knowledge and research-based practices to the field of Jewish education.
