Life Long Learning

Throughout the year we offer many opportunities for adults to engage in learning. From our weekly Torah Study, to our scholar-in-residence weekends, or the movie series -- we have classes and speakers for all levels of learners. We also offer beginning Hebrew for adults and look to expand this program in the future. Our Adult B'nai Mitzvah program provides a chance for adults who have never had a Bar/Bat Mitzvah to study together in preparation for their service.

One of the fundamental ways our children learn is from observing what their parents, grandparents and other role models do. Participation in adult Jewish learning sends an ongoing, important message to younger generations that continued growth and development of our Jewish knowledge is a priority. Come be a part of that message. Your participation and attendance in adult Jewish programs and events is sincerely encouraged. Together we will engage in learning and fulfill our commitment to the advancement of our Jewish-selves. You never know what you might learn!

Lifelong Jewish Learning is alive and well at Adath Emanu-El.

Welcome to Adath Emanu-El, a liberal but traditional Jewish community in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. From its very inception over 50 years ago, our synagogue has emphasized being an extended family, a congregational family. Even in the choice of name we are simply Adath Emanu-El - the community of Emanu-El. We are a congregation that supports a wide range of programs and activities for members of all ages. Our community is based on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, a Jew by birth or by choice.
