Adult Education

Adult Education

Jewish education is a lifelong process. Ongoing learning enables and empowers us to pursue spiritual meaning, ethical ideals, a connection to the divine, and the righteous path of Tikkun Olam.

At CEHV, we thrive on diversity. As a Reform community, we welcome all seekers, including non-Jewish people, all denominations of Jewish people, as well as those who are new to Jewish life, returning to the faith, and/or those who are simply curious. Our goal is to provide integrative, inclusive opportunities for scholarship and inquiry.  

Learning at CEHV facilitates competency and comfort with Jewish tradition and liturgy in a warm, inclusive environment. We prioritize deep, cohort-based learning with strong attention to individual and collective spiritual needs. Our learners enter at all levels. Rabbi Yael’s classes are interactive, experiential, rigorous, and wildly fun.

All of our classes are free and open to the entire community
