Adult Education

Our adult education programming is geared toward exploring the meaning of Jewish history, ritual, and thought from a secular perspective. Together, we grapple with questions of historical experience, values, and identity that challenge our thinking.

A foundation of Jewish and progressive literacy keeps our community strong. Come learn with us!

Building A Culture of Reparations: Special BWC Cohort

For the past two years, BWC's Acting for Racial & Economic Justice (AFREJ) Committee has engaged with the work of the Grassroots Reparations Campaign, an initiative of the Truth-Telling Project of Ferguson. Following up on the Kavod anti-racism course, and the recent Ujima workshops, we now invite our community to sign up for "Building a Culture of Reparations." This course is a five-session, Black-led course offered by the Grassroots Reparations Campaign and features some of the teachers who have presented AFREJ programs and introduced us to the broad scope of reparations work. We will come together as a BWC cohort for the sixth session led by AFREJ to deepen what we've learned and consider next steps together.
