Adult Education

Grandparenting Through a Jewish Lens

Thursday, March 26th 7:30pm

We will be holding class via Zoom. Circumstances have changed and many may feel disconnected from others in our community and from your children and grandchildren. We want to give everyone another opportunity to register for this terrific class before classes begin this week. 

We had originally planned to have all 4 classes before Passover. However, many will not be able to spend Passover with their grandchildren physically, and the class will hopefully give support for negotiating the new situation and continuing to build those relationships remotely during the holiday and beyond.

Please see the attached flier with registration link. Register by Tuesday March 24 to participate.

Bad@ss Broads in Midrash

Monday,March 23 and 30th 9:50 am (zoom)

The last two classes will take place using Zoom. We ask that everyone plan to join the call at 9:50 am (10 minutes early) so that everyone can get comfortable with the new format. You do NOT need to sign up for a Zoom account (free or paid) to participate. All you need to do is click on this link.
