Intergenerational Community Education: Participants of all ages are invited to attend workshops to enrich Jewish practice and understanding. This year we will continue exploring the topic Shabbat B'Yachad ("together on Shabbat") and the Jewish value of B'Tzelem Elohim ("in God's image"). We are adding two new themes: one is connected to our lovely new garden and relates to the Jewish values of peah/leket ("sharing food") and baal tashchit ("do not destroy"). As a community, we explore Judaism through study, the arts, and a variety of activities. Workshops build relationships within the congregation and empower participants to continue learning in their homes.

Family Programming for grandparents, parents, adults, and children includes grade level Shabbat dinners, shared grade programs, parent education, and theme workshops for the congregation. Our family educators have also worked in collaboration to bring regional initiatives to the community. These programs are intended as outreach to Jews in the area regardless of affiliation. A major portion of funding for Family Education is generously provided by a grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

Adult Education: We hold a variety of workshops, scholars-in-residence programs, lectures, and exhibits. Classes are usually taught by the rabbi, JCA members, or staff. Pre-registration and fees are required. Many opportunities are also available in the larger community.

Our most recent Adult Education catalog is available here.
