Our adult education programs are extraordinarily rich and varied. We've had member-run classes, as well as courses led by our rabbi and visiting scholars.
Subjects have ranged from delving into modern interpretations of biblical texts, to challah making and silk painting on tallits.
We've discussed Jewish legal issues, the Book of Ruth, the whys of mitzvot and had free-ranging conversations on the nature of God and Jewish values. Sign up for classes with Rabbi Lewis!
