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.

University Series

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

Tuesdays in December (December 5, 12, 19)
The Torah of Civility, taught by Rabbi Dale Schreiber
(Rabbi Randy will teach on the 26)
7:00 - 8:30 pm at CRC

Speech is a social action; a path toward connecting souls; a source of peace or a weapon of mass destruction. The rabbis recognized the importance of not just words, but attitudes.  Torah begins with our story -In the beginning the Holy Blessed One spoke and the world appeared.  We can trace our Jewish ethics of speech through biblical texts and many, many commentaries that follow into our twenty first century.  Come find the true heart of Torah in a central doctrine which insists that we find a way to speak so that others may truly hear. 

Guest Teachers
