It is through powerful learning experiences that we can deepen our relationships to Judaism and our community. Our Adult Learning community is focused on seeking meaning, creating connection, and relationship building for all. We aim to offer a range of opportunities to gather, share, discuss, debate, and learn from each other.
In parallel with SEED, our Early Childhood School, and The Gan, our Youth Learning Program, our intended outcomes are:
Each year, we will reassess our mission focus and create new offerings that help serve our community and the relationships within it.
This year, we have an exciting lineup of both in-person and virtual Adult Learning offerings that are sure to speak to your Heart, Soul and Mind. In addition to the items below, 5782 offerings will include a service leadership workshop, Yiddish classes, a Scholar in Residence program and potential topical interest learning opportunities.
