ADULT HEBREW 

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. 

Register Here for Adult Hebrew Class!

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!

By Diane Blumenthal

TORAH STUDY WITH UGANDAN JEWISH COMMUNITY

TORAH TODAY

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.

BJC BOOK CLUB

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
