Below, you will find a comprehensive collection of upcoming services, classes, and other opportunities to engage remotely. We affirm once again that our unwavering connection to each other is among our greatest blessings at Adas, and is felt just as palpably in our hearts, and even online, as it is in our building. We are each of us, arevim zeh la-zeh, deeply bound, one with the other.  Let our robust prayer, learning, social, and programmatic offerings over the airwaves serve as a beacon of hope, connection, and inspiration.

Virtual School

We encourage all preschool and religious school families to stay closely connected to us and each other throughout this closure. Our hope is that these experiences will offer a meaningful point of routine, connection, learning, and growth through the airwaves during this period. We look forward to seeing you all online!

Gan HaYeled
The Gan is committed to staying connected, and has created a comprehensive new digital framework for day-to-day school life throughout this period. The framework revolves around three core elements: CONNECTION, CONTENT, and ROUTINE. Read more about how we are actualizing these elements during our closure here

Religious School
Our year together will honor Adas Israel’s unique, dynamic, and celebrated approach to Jewish life and education. Now more than ever, we believe our students have great need of the community, framework, resources, and relationships their Jewish education provides. We are here and ready to accompany you on this journey. Learn more about our plan for 5781 here

We invite you to take (what we hope will be) some extra free time at home to catch up on all of our amazing learning and engagement content. Coming to you straight from the Adas treasure trove.

Tips for Participating

There is a menu of options at the bottom of your screen (if you don't see the menu, just move your cursor to or tap the bottom of your screen, and it will pop up):

  • “Mute” - Unless you are the meeting organizer, please mute your microphone; this is especially important when there are multiple participants. You can unmute when called on to make a comment.
  • “Stop Video” - This option turns off your webcam. You can still see others, but they cannot see you.
  • "Chat" - This opens a panel where you can type a question or make a comment. Within the panel, you will have options for chatting with everyone or selecting a specific participant.
  • "Leave Meeting" - When the meeting ends (or when you need to go), click here or simply close the app.
