Congregation Kol Ami’s Adult Education programs aim to deepen the Jewish experience and identity in a spirit of learning and community. Our adult programs are open to all members, regardless of prior Jewish educational background. We strive to broaden learners’ knowledge in order to strengthen our faith and love of Torah, and identification with the worldwide and local Jewish communities. Our programs help further an overall Jewish lifestyle which enables our congregants to:
Monday Torah Study
Torah Study is held every Monday from 12:30-2 pm at the Kol Ami office (unless otherwise noted.) The parsha and Haftorah portion for that week are read and discussed.
Introduction to Judaism Course
Every other year, an Introduction to Judaism course is offered twice a month. If you are interested in learning about the conversion process, our rabbi works with students on an individual basis. Contact Rabbi Stratford for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Informal education programs are held throughout the year. They consist of experiential learning activities, for example visiting a local battlefield to discuss the roles of Jews in the Civil War, or a Shabbat morning hike reflecting on spirituality in nature, or a film series as a launch pad to explore Jewish values in modern culture.
