Sinai offers adults a variety of learning opportunities, including Beit Midrash seminars, Scholar in Residence Weekends, Bible Study, Lunch and Learn, and many forms of Torah Study.Some sessions are facilitated by clergy and staff, while others are led by congregants, professionals, or visiting scholars.

Adults choosing to enrich their knowledge of Torah and the prayer book through the study of Hebrew will find a class suited to their needs. For more information, please contact Rabbi David Cohen at rabbi@congregationsinai.org.

A highlight of our lifelong learning opportunities is Sinai’s Adult B’nei Mitzvah program, which guides learners on a path of study designed to build a foundation of Jewish learning and practice.The two-year program, open to all members regardless of knowledge, culminates in a formal service in which learners lead the service, read or chant from the Torah, and share the experience of their journey with our community.
