Current Schedule for Adult Education Classes

November – December 2020

Class Listing Below


Will be be meeting in person?

All classes will be on ZOOM.  Even if we do transition to being able to have some classes in person, the ZOOM option will    still be offered.


Class time doesn’t work for you?

The session can be recorded for you and put up as a private and unsearchable video on Rabbi Bender’s YouTube page for you to watch at your convenience.


Concerned that sensitive discussions will be online?

The videos will only be reachable with a direct link that I generate in order to be able to still have candid conversation in the class.  Sessions will only be recorded by request for the same reason.


When will more classes offered?

These are the classes offered through the wend of 2020.  More to come in 2021.


What is the cost for each class?

Classes are free for Bnai Israel members.  Cost to nonmembers is $30 for one class series or $60 for the three-class bundle.


Happy learning!

Rabbi Bender
