Our Adult Education Program is driven by our congregants' own interests and is integrated into the context of their lives. Classes offer engaging possibilities to meet new people, exchange ideas and embrace Jewish ideas and history, ritual and culture. Our faculty consists of our clergy, experienced teachers and lay people from Beth Emet and the larger Jewish community. Offerings range from one time events to year-long classes.
