Learn With Us
Starting with our very youngest children in Shorashim (Roots) Class and continuing on through our Positive Aging Initiative (PAI), PSJC is committed to providing meaningful learning opportunities for individuals and families throughout the lifespan. Our goal is to provide learning opportunities that meet the needs of all the members of our community, regardless of age or stage of knowledge. See our PSJC Videos page to view recordings of some of our educational and community programs.
Our active and thriving Hebrew School seeks to instill in our children a positive Jewish identity, a connection to the PSJC community and to K’lal Yisrael (the Jewish people), and to provide our children with a strong grounding in Jewish literacy and values. Bar and bat mitzvah preparation and our Shaarei Mitzvah (Gates of Mitzvah) program guide both youth and family to enhance the experience for them all as they all work towards this important milestone. We provide an array of Jewish learning and socialization experiences for teens, as well as a number of ongoing and one-time adult education opportunities. PSJC's commitment to the State of Israel is reflected in a number of both ongoing and special Israel-related activities. Our website also provides recordings of High Holy Days music to help you prepare for the Days of Awe and a listing of resources for further information and learning. Whatever your age, it's never too early - or too late - to learn something new!
In this time of social isolation, virtual learning together is a great way to stay connected and meet new people, and there are many opportunities for Adult Learning. In addition to book groups and Torah study we have hosted classes and presentations as various as Talmud, Improv, Glass Fusion, Medieval history, Advanced Directives and a Bread Circle! See the listings on our Events Page for schedules and specific information about learning online.
