Ongoing Classes

Thursday Morning Class: Project Zug

Project Zug, an initiative of Mechon Hadar in New York, connects prospective learners with each other and with Torah study. Rabbi Weiner is facilitating several classes this year using Project Zug materials to discuss various themes: resilience, tzedaka, criminal justice and teshuva, theology after the Shoah, and modern theatrical midrash. All classes include source sheets and videos prepared by Hadar educators.

Hebrew

A continuing education class for adults focusing on Hebrew language and the prayer book. Students practice Hebrew reading, learn the basic Hebrew vocabulary and grammar, study the siddur, and enjoy discussions about the issues raised by the words and practice of Jewish prayer. Currently taught by Rabbi Weiner most Tuesday mornings at 10 or 11 a.m., depending on the week. Check the calendar for an updated schedule.

Introduction to Judaism

Join fellow students and dynamic teachers for classes on a wide range of Jewish themes, offered at an introductory level for both Jews and non-Jews. No prerequisites or prior knowledge required. Offered once every 2-3 years - to express interest, please contact the synagogue office.
