Adult Education

Kol Ami Adult Education & Events

Jewish education is a lifelong process and therefore we encourage our adult members and friends to attend any of the gatherings we offer our adult community.  During Torah study we discuss the weekly Parsha and our Lunch-N-Learn series go over various stories about the Torah, Midrashim.

Monday Torah Study

The Torah Study is held every Monday at 12:30 pm at the Kol Ami office unless otherwise noted.  We discuss the weekly Parsha.  We are now meeting for an hour and a half from 12:30 to 2:00 pm.  This will allow time for discussion of the Parsha of the week and the Haftorah Portion for that week .

For the time being, we will also have our Saturday morning Learner's Service and Torah study at 10:00 a.m. on non-Bar/Bat Mitzvah weekends for those people who cannot make it on Mondays. 

Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah:
It’s Never Too Late

Jewish tradition says that we begin “counting” our lives again once we turn 70. So for the 83-year olds among us, it is time to celebrate Bar/Bat Mitzvah all over again. As it is, as well, for those who never had the opportunity to become Bar or Bat Mitzvah when they turned 13. For Jews-by-choice, for women raised in a tradition which did not treat girls equally, for those who were raised without formal Jewish education, or for any of a number of other reasons, many adults are choosing to go through a cycle of learning and study, preparation and personal growth that leads to this powerful and deeply moving celebration of Jewish accomplishment. Those interested in finding out more about the Adult Bar or Bat Mitzvah program at Kol Ami should speak with our clergy.  B'nei Mitzvah Resource >
