Listening – Listening is more than hearing.

We hear so much…but how much do we actually listen? Hearing is easy. Listening is hard. The Torah offers us a blueprint for the practice of listening and invites us to hone those skills within the framework of our textual tradition and the practical skills that bring them to life.

In order to make these engaging and relevant learning options open to as many people as possible, we have decided to offer almost all of the programming at no charge, thanks to the generosity of many Adas members. At the same time, we still cannot possibly expect to cover all the costs associated with producing these important programs without additional support from you. When you register for an event, you will be presented with the option to offer a donation. Thanks in advance for your support.
