Jewish Values. Jewish Friendships. Jewish Fun.


J Line South Hills brings Judaism to life in a way that is relevant, enriching and fun. J Line South Hills gives our teens choice, diversity and depth in their Jewish learning experiences where Jewish values are “front row and center” in ways that speak to them.  J Line South Hills empowers our teens to embrace their Jewish identity, grapple with challenging life questions and improve the world in their own way.
