Adult Learning

At Kol Hadash, the goal of adult education is to help our members be well-rounded people, rooted in Jewish identity while open to the world around us. This is why our curriculum is not limited to Judaism. Philosophy, history, comparative religion, current events, literature, and science round out our weekly and episodic offerings.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact our Administrator Jeremy Owens at or call 847-383-5184
