Join Central's classes to get inspired and connect with other curious learners while exploring Jewish texts, cultures, history, rituals, and more!
Central's vision is to work together to learn, worship, serve, and continually redefine what it means to be Jewish today, both within our community and far beyond our walls. Our classes bring intriguing topics and engaging instructors together to help you connect more deeply to the Jewish experience and your own identity. Some classes require registration, while others are drop-in.
