Adult Education

We believe that Jewish education should be a lifelong endeavor. Our adult members learn, debate and grow through adult education classes, our guest speaker series and social events.
Individuals can participate in Sunday Morning Adult Education either in person or via zoom.  This hybrid format allows individuals to decide what works for them.  There are some Adult Education programs (typically mid-week) that will be exclusively via zoom.   Always check the weekly blast email or the congregational calendar to learn about upcoming classes.
Members of Beth Adam can find links to Adult Education and other programs by going to the Members Only tab and clicking on Online Events.  For individuals who are not members of the congregation, they will need to contact the congregational office to acquire the necessary Zoom link.
