Judaism offers a wealth of rich, deep, sophisticated ideas which enhance our lives. Adults make decisions about raising children, choosing careers, medical care for themselves and loved ones, where to live, and whom to love. Judaism offers the guidance to help through this maze of serious choices. Adults also experience fully the deep sorrow of loss and the great joy of true love. Jewish tradition can guide adults through these emotional highs and lows.
Adult Learning at KI equips our lifelong learners to face the complexity of their lives armed with Jewish knowledge. Whether taking a basic Judaism course or an advanced Talmud seminar, our learners come away from the experience with a greater appreciation of Judaism’s profound depths, and a greater understanding of how to lead an inspired life.
