Jewish Studies

Rabbi with Torah

Jewish studies are important to two groups of people, those who are Jewish and those who aren't. For those who are Jewish the study provides a grounding in who you are historically, culturally, philosophically, spiritually and religiously.

For those who aren't Jewish it enables and enriches knowledge of Jewish spirituality, literature, history, and cultural diversity; fosters an understanding of Jewish studies as the analysis of a diverse religious civilization; and, provides an understanding of the Jewish community to allow for better relations between Jews and non-Jews.  We welcome those who are not Jewish to our educational program in Jewish Studies.
