Adult Education

Adult education is a powerful mechanism for generating participation and meaning in Jewish life. Jewish education benefits adult learners while creating significant opportunities for community growth. Communities are strengthened by strong social networks among people from multiple generations and across geographic divides. It is through the efforts of individuals who feel inspired by Judaism that the traditions of social activism and compassion are fortified for future generations. View the adult ed opportunities in our community.
