Adult Education

Learning at Greenburgh Hebrew Center extends beyond Religious School!  There are numerous avenues available to expand our religious and cultural horizons while getting to know other members in the process.

Rabbi Stein has augmented our Shabbat learning by adding Power Start prior to the morning service and Finish Strong following kiddush and lunch.  In these lively, participatory sessions he engages us in discussions - from halacha to current events - on how to make Judaism relevant for the twenty-first century.  On Sunday morning the learning continues at Bible and Bagels where the learning is usually based on the Torah or other liturgy.

In general, Thursday nights are reserved for Adult Education.  Our programs cover a wide variety of interests from author talks, balance and fall prevention, to canasta. This year we look forward to several mini-series That Rabbi will be leading as well as his single session holiday programs: Let's Put the "High" Back in the High Holidays and Passover University.

Our Book Club, which meets on Tuesday mornings, will include both fiction and nonfiction this year.  It's always interesting to hear various readers' viewpoints.

Debbie Erdheim, our enthusiastic Religious School Director, teaches an adult Hebrew class on Sunday mornings.

We have an active Empty Nesters GroupOur format is fluid and changes to meet the needs of our members. We have no dues and enjoy a multitude of activities ranging from Wednesday night dance classes to theater outings, movies, pot luck dinners and more.

There are several unique events planned (and open to all adults), among which are GHC's Second Annual Night at the Opera, a museum tour led by Rabbi Kenter and a Scholar-in-Residence week-end. 

Join us on Shabbat or try an Empty Nesters' Event ...... We're sure you'll be back for more!

Please check the calendar for specific events and dates. Feel free to contact me at VPAdulteducation@g-h-c.org (Don't worry - we're for everyone, not just seniors!)
