Adult Education

The adult education programs provide opportunities for adult members of Kol Emet to learn about and better appreciate various aspects of Jewish life, culture and history through a wide range of methods. These include discussion groups, formal classes, seminars/lectures, and speakers. We strive to offer mainly complementary programming to members of Kol Emet, and non-members of Kol Emet are welcome to attend any of these programs.

How you can get involved in building the Adult Education Program: Assistance is always welcome in offering suggestions and topics for future adult events and in coordinating events for our members and community at large. There are multiple opportunities for members to exhibit their special skills in writing, teaching, and organizing workshops on Jewish related topics.
