Adult Education 2020-2021 -- Torah Study, Talmud Study and Hebrew 

Now Meeting on Zoom!

"A Taste of Torah"

We are known as the People of the Book. Learning and studying Torah is an essential component of a rich and meaningful Jewish life. It connects us with our past and gives us perspective on the future, while helping us make decisions in the moment. This is why the Rabbis decreed that we should read the entire Torah every single year, and that every Jew should read the weekly portion three times.

We will study the weekly portion using the Commentators’ Bible, a translation of Mikraot Gedolot, and some of the most influential and famous commentaries on the Torah. No prior knowledge or experience is necessary.  You do not need to attend weekly to participate in this class.

Wednesdays – 10:00-11:00 a.m.


Pirkei Avot -- Ethics of Our Sages

Technically a tractate of the Mishnah, Pirkei Avot stands out from all of the other tractates in that it is not a discussion of laws on a particular subject.  Instead, it is a collection of wisdom and ethical teachings of the Sages.  "If not now, when?"

Wednesdays – 4:00-5:30 p.m. (3/31, 4/7, 4/14, 4/28, 5/12 & 5/19)

The price per person for one class is $75.  To register, contact Julia Coss via email at

PJC Book Group

Join our group of book lovers for lively monthly discussions about Jewish books.  We alternate between fiction and non-fiction.  Our discussions last about an hour.  Anyone can recommend a book and/or lead the discussion.  We have been successful in enlisting well-known authors, including Rachel Kadish, Matti Friedman, Gloria Goldreich and Karen Dukess -- to name a few -- to enhance our discussions.  There are no requirements, so please join us.

Hebrew Classes

Hebrew is the language of our Torah, of our people and of our prayers. Learning Hebrew is a lifelong endeavor, as the language continues to evolve in Israel.

To register, contact Julia Coss in the PJC office.
