Adult Education



There are certain experiences that only men can share. There are specific expectations that only men have. There are certain challenges that only men face, and there are certain things that can only be understood by men. Men need the company of men, to be men.

Substitute "women" for "men" and this is just as true a statement.

Join us in the social hall for gender specific seders. The Men's seder will follow the Men of reform Judaism's Men's Seder Haggadah, and the omen will use a modified version of Sisterhood's Women's Seder Haggadah from 2015. The seders will not include dinner; however, we will gather as one group for dessert.
