Adult Jewish LearningGerson D. Cohen Institute for Adult Jewish Learning

We are a center for serious Jewish learning. Synagogue classes offer everyone opportunities to discover new meanings in Judaism and Jewish culture.

Our adult learning program is named for Rabbi Gerson D. Cohen, a widely respected historian and Chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America from 1972 to 1986.

Home Learning
Would you like to study Jewish texts together with a small group of friends and neighbors in an intimate setting? This year, you have the chance to invite Rabbi Katz or Cantor Stevens to your home to teach an exciting three-session class. What do you need to do? 1) Recruit 15-20 people who will commit to the classes. 2) Send out monthly reminders to your group. 3) Prepare your home for an evening of Jewish learning! Interested? Contact Sandra in the synagogue office to find out more. A limited number of these classes will be offered this year.

Yiddish After Kiddush
Informal classroom style Yiddish conversations held monthly after Kiddush with an array of members. Enjoy the joys of Yiddish with a group that meets to schmooze together.
