Emanu-El Scholar Courses
Jewish Learning: Introductory to Advanced Courses
Indulge your appetite for a taste of Jewish culture, history, and the arts with one of our bite-sized electives. These classes are taught by our clergy or guest lecturers and range from one-night lectures to multiple-week courses spanning a full trimester. All Jewish Learning courses are scheduled to meet on Tuesday evenings unless otherwise noted.
Join Emanu-El clergy to learn about the breadth and wonder of Jewish tradition. This class is a pathway for the adult learner who wishes to discover or deepen Jewish knowledge, non-Jews who are marrying a Jewish partner, and those who are considering conversion to Judaism.
