Passionate community of learners
In Judaism, learning is a life-long process, and each stage of learning brings with it special blessings and insights. At Congregation Or Atid, we offer a wide variety of courses for adults where we explore our rich heritage in a literary and historical way. Classes are taught by Rabbi Polisson and a number of scholars who share their wisdom with us. In addition, Or Atid is honored to have sponsored Hebrew College's Me'ah program, an intensive, two-year graduate level study program for adults.
Something for everyone
Whether you are a serious or casual learner, we have classes and programs that will stimulate and challenge your mind and spirit. For our scholars, we offer intensive Torah and Talmud study classes. We also offer Hebrew for beginners.
Just for fun......
Spend an afternoon with "Or Atid Reads" discussing politically current books like "Start Up Nation" or NY Times bestselling novels like "City of Thieves". Enjoy movie night featuring films like "The Dybbuk", one of the top 10 Jewish films of all time. We also explore contemporary themes from a biblical and psychological perspective like "Jewish Guilt 101" or "Family Struggles from the Book of Genesis".
