“The Workmen's Circle is my Jewish community because it allows me to express all the different aspects of my Jewish identity in one place. It’s where I act for change while being part of a larger, inter-generational community.”
Our adult education programming is geared toward exploring the meaning of Jewish history, ritual, and thought from a secular perspective. Together, we grapple with questions of historical experience, values, and identity that challenge our thinking.
A foundation of Jewish and progressive literacy keeps our community strong. Come learn with us!
- Adult education courses are taught by highly qualified and stimulating guest instructors.
