Adult Education


B'nai Israel's Adult Education programs offer variety as well as depth. Whether you are interested in ancient texts or modern dilemmas, whether you prefer intimate classes or larger lectures, there is something for you:

  • Life-long learning throughout the year, including opportunities for beginning and conversational Hebrew, and special programs to learn about Judaism, its history, customs, and music.
  • Discussion and learning sessions with Women of B'nai Israel and our Brotherhood
  • Programs sponsored by a strong Social Action Committee that includes committees on Racial Justice, Pride, Refugees, and Sustainable Living
  • An Israel Committee whose mission is to provide a forum to promote our congregation's enduring connection to Israel and a continuing understanding of issues facing contemporary Israel, including factors shaping Israel's position in the world and Israel’s relationship with American and world Jewry.
