ADULT CLASSES



Learn to Chant Torah taught by Cantor Cheryl Wunch, Mondays December 14th-January 18th, 8:00-9:00pm.

Chanting Torah is a fun and fulfilling way to participate in our Jewish community!  Over six 1-hour classes, Cantor Wunch will teach you the fundamentals of Torah chanting and help you prepare to read our sacred text.  Classes will be interactive and participatory, and we ask that you agree to practice regularly at home in between the sessions.  This course is free for members who commit to chanting Torah for at least one City Shul service (Cantor Wunch will assist you!).  The ability to read basic Hebrew is needed for this class, but Hebrew fluency is not required.  All necessary materials will be provided. Members: Free Non-members $150.

A reading of selected texts from Biblical and Rabbinic literature that provide a basis for an eternal ethical foundation of our behavior.

Strangers in the Land of Egypt: What does history say about the Exodus? Taught by Yonah Sienna, Wednesdays February 24th, March 3rd, March 10th and March 17th at 7:30pm. 

The final centuries of the Bronze Age are full of mystery and drama. Join us as we explore the historical evidence of this period, as compared to the stories in the TaNaKh. Are these stories authentic memories, passed down orally from generation to generation? Or just fairy tales, invented centuries later? And most importantly: what really happened in that desert, before the Israelites conquered Canaan? Members: Free Non-members: $60. Register here.
