Adult Learning at Adath Shalom

The Mishna tells us that the study of Torah is the greatest human act for it leads to all  of the other actions that bring blessing and benefit to the world.  At Adath Shalom, we take an expansive view of Torah study: from ritual skills such as Torah reading, Hebrew, understanding and leading prayers to engagement with Jewish thought, values, culture and spirituality on every level.  We are constantly preparing new offerings and creating new opportunities including courses, trips, discussions, shows, movies, speakers, cooking, mind/body, music and more!   Here are just a few of our ongoing summer 2017 learning :

Davenology: a weekly lunchtime class (lunch provided) with Rabbi Rudin delving into the deeper meaning of Jewish prayer and liturgy and providing background.  What is Jewish prayer?  It is a pair of wings, a doorway, a feast, a song… come and learn more!   Meeting Wednesdays from 1:00-2:00 PM.   More info?  Email or call Rabbi Moshe at (973) 220-1677 24/6!

Conversational Hebrew: for those with a bit of background- did you attend Hebrew high school, take a Hebrew course or just want to challenge yourself?  We meet on Thursdays from 4:30-5:30 PM.  More info?  Email or call Rabbi Moshe at (973) 220-1677 24/6!

Intensives and Tutorials:  Interested in a specific area of Jewish thought, study, movies, media, cuisine, Israel, politics?  Speak with Rabbi Rudin about setting up a study or discussion group!

Ritual Skills:  Cantor Lois Kittner is always happy to meet with congregants or prospective members and helping them take the next step in their Jewish journey!  Contact her at
