Adult Education

"Get yourself a teacher, find yourself a friend to study with" - Mishnah Avot 1:6  This quote tells about the philosophy behind Adult Education at Beth Jacob.

Adult education at Congregation Beth Jacob offers the opportunity to learn with our clergy, outside educators, and talented members of the Beth Jacob community. 


Here you will find educational, cultural, and entertaining programs that provide an opportunity to deepen your relationship to Jewish practice and your connection to the Beth Jacob community. 

We offer a variety of ways to engage in learning.

  • Our Continuing Study courses are ongoing and do not require registration.

  • Series Courses begin throughout the year, and cover a variety of topics.  Some require registration and/or payment.

  • Special programs like the Scholar-in-Residence happen several times a year.  These are unique opportunties and are not to be missed.

    We also offer a variety of classes and adult education opportunities throughout the year, with various authors, professors and leaders in the community.

Find yourself a friend and study at CBJ!
