Our classes, for children and adults, invite you to explore how to apply Jewish values in your life.  We offer text-based study, intellectually engaging in-depth application of traditional texts (in English) to contemporary life, as well as creative-arts based study, including drama and art. Students with any background welcome (no Hebrew necessary). Our conversion program helps you discover the spiritual and ethical richness of the Jewish tradition. Join us, and find out why students say our classes are “a bajillion times better” than traditional Hebrew school!

We also partner with synagogues and day schools to help you enrich your educational offerings through our “Torah and Today” curriculum.
