We believe adult learning fosters a lifelong commitment to personal spiritual growth, expanding Jewish intellectual society, and passing Jewish literacy and learning from generation to generation.

Ahavath Achim offers adult education opportunities throughout the year with regularly scheduled classes, special programming, guest speakers and special events.

Join us for a new adult education Hebrew program led by congregant, Jim Dricker! Jim will offer the class, Beginning Hebrew Reading for Adults, every Wednesday from March 28 – May 23, 7:00 – 8:30 pm in Paradies Hall (no class on April 4).

The cost of enrollment for AA members is $50 (includes book) per person or $75 per couple; $65 per person for non-members. For additional information, please contact Rabbi Neil Sandler at 404.603.5740 or nsandler@aasynagogue.org.

Do you want to know what the prayers we say actually mean? Where they came from? How to say them? Why we say them? When to stand? When to sit? And WHY? Join Rabbi Laurence Rosenthal directly after evening Minyan for an exploration into the siddur. You will practice reading, understanding the service, and finding ways to improve your prayer life.

The class will meet on Wednesdays at 6:00 – 7:00 pm (November 8 – January 10).
