Adult Education

“We have a rabbi who is brilliant, who is articulate and a fun speaker. I think of him like a graduate professor of philosophy. He is a pleasure to listen to.” 

 — Mark F., Deerfield

“Rabbi Chalom’s Tuesday night adult education course is like a college seminar course, only without the annoying papers or required readings.”

— Marty S., Deerfield


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

Kol Hadash serves a range of adult learners, from dabblers to diligent students.  Rabbi Chalom leads a variety of learning options each year.
