Our excellent Adult Ed program presents a variety of topics of interest to Jews and Humanists. Recent subjects have included the Jews of Sicily and Italy, Jewish Genealogy and Histories of Surnames, Jewish perspectives on Jesus, the Monuments Men, Jews in Rock and Roll, the Bintel Briefs, and Holocaust Kindertransport Survivors’ Stories.
Adult Ed programs take place on selected Sundays from 9:30 to 11:30 am in Randolph, NJ. They are presented concurrently with Sunday School so that parents can easily attend while children are in class. They begin with half an hour of socializing over fresh coffee and bagels followed by a presentation, often by an expert guest speaker. Prospective members are welcome to attend. A complete listing of our upcoming Adult Ed programs is listed in the Calendar.
