a Jewish presence in the City of St. Louis

lifelong learning

Adult Education

At CRC, we believe that Education is a lifelong process. Through the study of Jewish texts, both ancient and modern, we join together to address questions relevant to the quality of our lives and the lives of all humankind.

We encourage our adult members and friends to join us for one of our many upcoming programs.

Weekly Opportunities

Adult Beginning Hebrew

For information about beginning Hebrew, please contact Maggie Duwe, Adult Educator, at 361-1564 ext. 112 or maggie@centralreform.org.

Adult Intermediate Hebrew

Intermediate Hebrew instruction is provided every Monday afternoon from 12:00pm – 1:00 with Maggie Duwe. If you have any questions, contact Maggie Duwe, Adult Educator, at 361-1564 ext. 112 or maggie@centralreform.org

Torah Study

Every Friday afternoon from 2:00 pm – 3: 15 pm and Saturday morning 8:45 am - 10:00 am. Join us to discover what wisdom we can find in our earliest Jewish text and how it is relevant to our lives today! Our Saturday morning class follows the text of the week, while our Friday afternoon class works through the Torah at our own pace - we usually find enough in a passage to last us for several weeks. Feel free to come any time and check out either program; no prior knowledge is required. For more information, please contact Maggie Duwe, Adult Educator, at 3114-361-1564  ext. 112 or maggie@centralreform.org.

University Series

Held every Tuesday evening. Topic and teacher rotate by month. 

Tuesdays in November (November 7, 14, 21, and 28)
Judaism and the New Testament, Part One - Taught by Will Soll
7:00 - 8:30 pm at CRC

This class will explore not only the Jewish background of the New Testament but also its Jewish foreground: New Testament texts that reflect Jewish ethics, midrash, piety, customs and social organization.  (Note: this class will NOT explore how the church parted ways with the synagogue and how that division changed the composition of the church, its attitude towards Jews, and the profound impact this had on how the church told its "Jesus" story.  (That's Part Two.)

Guest Teachers

We often have wonderful speakers come to CRC to broaden our knowledge of Jewish topics. Check our website, our e-announcements and The MEMO frequently so that you don’t miss out! If you have questions, call Jennifer Fishering, Assistant to the Rabbis, 314.361.1564, ext. 101 or jenf@centralreform.org.
