Adult Education

Glen Rock Jewish Center offers members opportunities for intellectual and spiritual growth, and for the advancement of lifelong learning.

Rabbi's Classes
 

Rabbi Schlosberg teaches a number of adult education classes throughout the year. She often involves community members in a Torah discussion on Shabbat mornings during services. In addition, in the past she has offered classes like Judaism 101, Torah chanting and Torah on Tap. She looks forward to hosting a class on preparing for end-of-life issues, which will help community members learn about funeral planning and living and ethical wills through a Jewish lens.

Our rabbinic intern, Shani Abramowitz currently leads "Torah on Tap classes" as well. Check our calendar for the list of dates.

 

Book Club
 

Our Sisterhood Book Club meets numerous times throughout the year at a host house, analyzing books using our own diverse female Jewish perspectives. Our book selections are intended to engage our members in a fun and stimulating women’s night out. In lively, thought-provoking discussions, we share our reactions on the topics and themes of the book, and in doing so, we get to know each other better and deepen our connection to each other and our community. And, like all good events, we always have a nosh and coffee!

Books recently read include: An Unorthodox Match, Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity and Love, and Jewish National Book Club award-winner, The Weight of Ink. 

In the past, we have participated in the Jewish Federation county-wide book club event "One Book-One Community,” reading their selected book and attending the author talk.  We always welcome new insights, so please join us!
