Kol Ami offers a variety of educational programs and social opportunities for adults. There is never any end of interesting things to study related to Judaism! Our Programs Committee led by Elenor Hodges works together with our Adult Jewish Education leader, Dr. Richard Ruth, and Rabbi Langner to plan and implement Jewish religious and cultural education programs. Our Schmooze Club, led by Madeleine Levy, plans a variety of social activities over the course of the year. If you’d like to suggest a program for Kol Ami, please let us know.
We have an exciting year ahead in Adult Ed, including:
— a three part lecture series, Entry Point Judaism, in the fall
— a year-long Virtual Beit Midrash to become more familiar with Shabbat prayers
— a monthly discussion series on Israel-Palestine.
The Kol Ami Schmooze Club, led by Madeleine Levy, plans fun activities (e.g., Jewish Jokes night), discussions about politics (e.g., Israel, Middle East, elections), religion (e.g., God, Nature, atheism), the arts (books, movies, plays). The idea is to have fun, let our hair down and discuss topics that are otherwise taboo (politically) or too sensitive (religiously), or just plain interesting. We also occasionally attend theatre or film productions in the area, and discuss them over dinner.
