Adult Learning

Adult Education Programs

Adult Education at Congregation Adath Jeshurun provides a wide array of learning opportunities for its members. Each year, a variety of unique learning experiences  are offered. At times there are individual presentations from both congregants or well-known specialists (Trudy Rubin, journalist/columnist). There have also been classes that run for several sessions that cover a variety of topics such as “Living Judaism”, “Jewish Wisdom for the End of Life Journey”, or "The  Chinese Jewish Community". These are taught by our clergy, members of the AJ community, or specialists.

Noontime Torah

We offer Noontime Torah which is open to the entire community. It meets in the AJ Library on Tuesdays from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM. This program is sponsored by the Rabbinical Assembly and is a rabbi-led discussion and analysis of the weekly Torah portion or other stimulating topic. Each class is self-contained so you can participate on any given week. Bring a lunch and a Bible; beverages will be provided.

Rabbi’s Study Sessions

Rabbi Kenter holds study sessions between Minhah and Ma’ariv on selected Saturday evenings. Topics vary from week to week. See the AJ calendar for specific dates.
