Adult Education


Because of the pandemic we are making a few changes to our Adult Education

classes. For the time being, these classes will continue to take place on Zoom on Wednesdays from 11am to noon (unless otherwise noted below). A few “Virtual

Coffees with the Rabbi” will be interspersed at that time so we can chat and enjoy each other’s company.
