Adult Education Topics

Congregation B’Nai Olympic Shalom is made up of a diverse membership from many backgrounds. We thrive not only on the beauty of our area, but our strong Jewish connections, and value we place on continuous learning. Our Adult Education programming reflects that value, as well as the great depth of knowledge within this congregation. Covering a wide variety of topics from Jewish History to interpretations of the Bible, these presentations follow a potluck dinner and are informal, relaxed and very interactive. So come nosh and learn a little bit!

Please see our Events page for upcoming Adult Education program dates. We would love to have you join us!
