Adult and family programming

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 7.47.04 PMDance, study, sing, think, ask. Judaism is for the total person. Judaism is to know yourself better: where you come from and where you might yet like to go. Here at Kol Ami, you can join this incomparable search with other wonderful people – in a community of learners – intellectually open, spiritually honest and joyful. As a community, our Temple seeks to help members grow spiritually to deepen their understanding of the Jewish Heritage, and to strengthen their connection to Jewish community.


You can learn Hebrew, have an adult B’nai Mitzvah, take a parenting or grandparenting class, learn to cook an exotic cuisine, listen to a lecture, study Torah, knit, sing, meditate, trace your family tree and so much more. All courses and details are listed in our brochure and our calendar lists courses meeting on specific dates. You can even download our adult ed calendar onto most e-calendar programs so you never miss an event.

Making Justice Real: Political Ethics in the Torah
With Rabbinic Intern Noah Lawrence

Wednesday nights,  October 27th-December 8th
Join face to face or by Zoom – we’ll all join together, each in the way we’re able

Class Description: What kind of work does it take to make society just and keep it that way? Is the task never-ending or can it reach completion, and if so how do we reach that point? Why does this work matter – what is at stake? Come join congregants and Rabbinic Intern Noah Lawrence as we discuss together what the Torah has to say about these questions. We’ll delve anew and deeply into classic stories like that of Pharaoh and the Exodus, Korach’s rebellion against Moses, and others. In our time when these questions bear particular significance, come explore the Torah’s timeless insights, and how they can guide us in choosing our paths forward and illuminate our spirits, together in good company.
