Dedicated to offering meaningful programs that will enhance Jewish education for the adults of our congregation; it is our goal to bring new and innovative ideas that will excite and stimulate the mind and spirit, while encouraging participation at a level unique to each individual. There is always a warm greeting, a cup of coffee (usually a nosh) and the chance to learn with your temple family. Please join us. Questions?
