Join us for a special evening of adult learning where you will have the opportunity to sample upcoming classes from Hebrew College’s Open Circle Jewish Learning, Me’ah Classic, and Me’ah Select.

Whether you are new to adult learning at Hebrew College or returning this semester, we invite you to experience our robust programs and find the kind of course that’s right for you. We offer a range of experiences that meet the interests and needs of our diverse learners.

We will start together as a learning community, and then will have two chances to choose from four sample lessons.
