Learning is a constant for Judaism, and the purpose of the Learning Center is to help fulfill this maximum. The Learning Center does this by both highlighting ongoing programs and organizing new opportunities for educational enrichment for congregants, their guests, and the greater community. Join us throughout the year as we present numerous lectures, seminars and workshops.

On the 1st Saturday of every month, following Shabbat morning worship, join us for lunch and a guided study of the weekly Torah portion. Bring a potluck Kiddush lunch to share.
