ADULT EDUCATION / LIFELONG LEARNING

Regardless of your level of Jewish knowledge, there are exciting learning opportunities at Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah. From Jewish cooking to text study, from learning about Jews in far flung lands to learning about the siddur (and so much more), Adult Education strives to bring a variety of programming to our congregation to satisfy the diverse learning interests of our members. Joining a class is a great way to feel connected to your shul community.

The Florence Melton School

Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah has established a relationship with the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning. Check out the Melton School website for more information.

You can always call the synagogue office at 847.256.1213 with your questions or suggestions. We look forward to learning with you.
