The Adult Education Committee seeks to provide a Beit Midrash, a house of study, for the shul by providing programs that instill an abiding relationship with Judaism, the Jewish people, and the State of Israel.
The videos below were produced during a time when Zoom became our primary and only form of meeting to learn and grow together. Through the 2020-2021 year, we combated isolation by offering a wide variety of opportunities to talk and learn together. Take the time to go through and see some of the programs we put on recently. Enjoy!
