The Tartak Learning Center is an educational resource center designed to provide Jewish education ideas, materials, and consulting to Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion students, alumni, and Jewish professionals. The Tartak Learning Center, located in the Mercaz of the Los Angeles campus, was established through a generous and on-going gift by the Tartak Family and is maintained by the Rhea Hirsch School of Education (RHSOE). First opened by the RHSOE in the mid-1970s, today it houses a collection of nearly 5,000 items, including books, curricula (published and student written), videos, music, and computer software. The Tartak Learning Center runs workshops highlighting new methods and materials for teaching Jewish holidays and other important topics in Jewish education
