A Celebration of Ladino Music 

Adult Programs


Meet once a month with fellow book lovers to discuss fascinating books of all genres nominated by the members. All are welcome, even if just to drop in once in a while. The book club meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 8 - 9:30 PM.  See the monthly calendar for dates and reading selections!  For more information, please contact Evelyn Ganzglass here


Our multi-level Hebrew class for adults meets you where you are. There is a depth and richness to being able to experience prayer and Torah in Hebrew that is available to you through the study of our people’s ancient, yet amazingly modern language. We have groups from beginners through advanced and welcome everyone. Tuition is free for BJC members and $200 for non-members.  

We meet every Saturday that school is in session from 9 - 10:15 AM. If you will be a new student, please contact our instructor, Maran Gluckstein, here  so that she can be sure to have the proper books waiting for you.  L’hitraot!  See you soon!


90 minutes of the most interesting conversation you will have all week! 

Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. Join Rabbi Schnitzer for a fascinating discussion of the Torah portion of the week, sharing classic commentaries, Midrash, and current interpretations of sacred text, with a focus on relevance to modern life. No prior experience or knowledge of Hebrew is required to delve deeply into these moments of meaning.


This lecture series coordinated by the Program Committee brings a range of speakers to BJC for its members and the community. Here’s just a sample of who we’ve enjoyed in the past few years.  

  • Gene Weingarten, Washington Post
  • Mark Hetfield, CEO of HIAS
  • Steven Friedman, Behind the Curtain of a Broadway Musical
  • E.J. Dionne, Washington Post
  • Tom Friedman, New York Times


Throughout the year, the Rabbi conducts several classes on various topics such as: The Jewish Influence on Broadway, Jewish Gangsters, The Jewish Way of Death and Mourning, and Jewish Witness to European history.  

Additionally, we bring opportunities to the congregation, such as the 2020 presentation by Integrity First for America on "Taking White Supremacy to Court: The Charlottesville Case."
