Ongoing Learning – Special guests, recurring classes, and more!

We are committed to teaching Judaism, from basic principles & Jewish skills, to advanced concept exploration. It is our hope that ongoing Jewish learning and literacy become an important and prominent part of each of our members’ lives. A few highlights include:

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.
