Ahavath Achim is committed to providing a community of adult Jewish learning.

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.

Throughout most of the year we offer a weekly one-hour Shabbat Morning Torah Study session from 10:00 a.m. –11:00 a.m. in the Cavalier Room near our chapel. Most of the sessions are facilitated by congregant volunteers who lead lively discussions. To receive a weekly e-mail reminder, please send a note to Rabbi Neil Sandler .

Read It or Not – Kiddush Book Club

The Read It or Not Kiddush Book Club generally meets the third Shabbat of each month (November through May, except April) as a post-kiddush beit midrash to discuss thought-provoking and intellectually-stimulating literature. The discussion will take place after the Kiddush on Saturday afternoon at 12:30 p.m.
