Are you interested in exploring Jewish texts, cultures, history, rituals, and more? Looking to connect with other curious learners?

Central’s classes bring intriguing topics and engaging instructors together to help you connect more deeply to Jewish experience and your own identity. Some classes require registration, while others are drop-in.

In addition to original curricula, Central offers a selection of courses developed by the Florence Melton School for Adult Jewish Learning. Its well-rounded and sophisticated approach provides a comprehensive exploration of Jewish thought, practice, ethics, and history. Melton classes are designed for all levels of Jewish knowledge and practice—there is no Hebrew knowledge required.

Please note, our offerings are currently virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic until further notice.
