Adult Ed

Life-long learning for congregants of all ages is a core value at CSS.  Our adult learning opportunities nurture our connection with Judaism and reveal the relevance of Jewish traditions in the 21st century.  Topics are created to be meaningful, experiential learning based on our congregants' interests.  Some of our past topics have included weekly Torah study, Jewish history, Israel, Popular Culture, Jewish cooking, and Hebrew language, to name a few.

The programs we offer are welcoming, challenging, and accessible at a variety of levels.  Our wide range of teachers includes congregants, rabbis, cantors, and professional educators engaging learners of all ages.
