Our revitalized Adult Education program continues with “Judaism Unveiled: Beyond the Black and White.” We’ll delve into thought-provoking themes and topics—Jewish characters, stories and holidays—in the Sunday sessions at 10:15am in the WJC Library. We invite everyone to join us.

December 17: Beyond Holiday Celebrations
While Rosh Hashanah, Purim, and Hanukkah are beloved holidays, they hold provocative narratives that run far deeper than our celebrations suggest. We will peel back layers of modern practices to highlight facts that are not widely known and often reveal dark truths.
