Adult Education

Adult education programs include Torah study and adult B’nai Mitzvah.  The classes are taught by Rabbi Schectman and start with the basics of Hebrew literacy.  No prior Jewish education is necessary.  The class will move at a relaxed pace and you will gain mastery of the Hebrew letters and vowels.  We then focus on reading prayers that you may know by rote. Once this literacy is achieved, we will move on to learning to chant Torah and Haftarah. No one is ever too old to have a Bar or a Bat Mitzvah.  If you missed one at age 13, you can join a group that is preparing for this ceremony together.  If you already are a Hebrew reader, you can join the group a few months in.

Adult Ed is offered as a perk of membership, there is no additional charge.  Non-members are welcome to join the class for a fee. Contact for more information.
