Adult Education-Jewish Studies

The Adat Shalom Adult Education-Jewish Studies Program offers the best of clergy and lay-led teaching and discussion opportunities, complemented by special programs led by visiting scholars. As a community committed to life-long learning, Adat Shalom opens all of its Jewish Studies programs to members and guests, including interested young people who have become bar or bat mitzvah.

Our goal is to put together an exciting year of study for people at all levels of engagement and interest. The Sunday Morning Series will focus on different key points of Jewish history and rabbinic teachings of that period, Sacred Text and Torah Study classes will be offered with greater regularity as part of special Shabbat morning programming. Shabbat Matters will continue for our Torah School parents and others that are interested in Shabbat morning study. Makom@AdatShalom continues to offer creative programming with many opportunities for contemplative practices for new and more advanced practitioners.

These are just some of the highlights. There will be many more programs developed throughout the year by our clergy and congregants so stay in touch via the Jewish Studies listserve. Childcare can be provided at no charge with advance registration.
