Adult Education

The Adult Education Team offers a wide variety of learning opportunities throughout the year.   They sponsor a popular Jewish film series called Reel Nights.  This series which takes place on Saturday evenings throughout the year, features little known, but wonderful films with a Jewish theme and a lively discussion of the movie afterward.  

 Everyone is welcome to join the committee or simply join our mailing list to keep informed about upcoming events.  Please contact Kareen Hartwig or the school office if you wish to be added to the Adult Ed mailing list, or if you have ideas you would like to share.
