Adult Education

Welcome to Adult Education at Synagogue Emanu-El! All classes are free and open to the public.

We are currently on a summer schedule and will be adding more courses in the fall.


Current offerings:

The Biblical Books of Samuel and Kings
Wednesday Evenings, July 11 through August 29
Instructor: Dr. Michael S. Kogan

7:00-8:15pm, Zucker Family Social Hall

Please bring your own Bible.

This course is a continuation of Prof. Kogan’s course last summer on the books of Joshua and Judges. The books of Samuel and Kings continue the story of the Israelites as they settle in the Promised Land, choose a king to rule over them, then, a century later, split into two countries (Judah and Israel) and try to flourish even in the face of powerful empires surrounding them. We will tell the stories of Samuel, Saul, David and Jonathan, Solomon, and the later kings of Judah and Israel.

This is our story, full of the heroes and villains of biblical history. It is an exciting tale which not only tells us who we are, but has shaped the self-understanding of the entire Western world. Please join us on this journey through our sacred story.

All are welcome!

The following opportunity is ongoing:

Danish & D'rash meets weekly on Saturdays from 9:00-9:30AM, immediately prior to Shabbat morning services. Rabbi Rosenbaum leads participants in a brief discussion of themes of the weekly Torah portion. Enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee and a sweet treat as we talk Torah!
