Community Learning

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 or professional development, 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, and adults of all ages. You can study alongside peers in our CJP-sponsored programs or alongside rabbinical, cantorial and master’s students in our graduate-level classes that are open to the community.

Our community classes, learning circles, and conversation groups meet on our Newton Centre campus; and in synagogues, community centers, and living rooms throughout the Greater Boston Area. We also offer a wide range of online learning opportunities.

Whether you’re a recent college graduate, a retiree or somewhere in between, we encourage you to continue your journey of Jewish learning and discovery through Hebrew College.
