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!

Fall 2020 Adult Education Courses:

People Power: Bridging Movements and Generations in 2020


What can we learn from the vast history of social movements in this time of pandemic and uprising? What about this moment looks familiar to historical moments that we have lived and learned about? How are communities leveraging knowledge and relationships to adapt and respond?


Join us for a 3-session course focused on the role of social movements in molding our collective history. We will explore how the past is shaping the future as we collaboratively frame our roles in this pivotal time. We will think about our connections to various social movements, look at case studies about different methods of change, and articulate the ways in which we want to move forward with our knowledge of social movement ecology.
