Jewish Community & Hebrew Education

Your Jewish Learning

Whether you’re interested in studying Mishnah, meditation, or music; hope to learn Modern Hebrew or delve into ancient texts; or need parenting advice, professional development, or a program for your teen, Hebrew College has a program for you. Our offerings include programs geared towards young adults in their 20s and 30s, parents of toddlers through teens, mid-career professionals, teens, and adults of all ages.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all Hebrew College Community Education classes are being offered online.
