Adult Education

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!
