The Jack and Sue Becker Project Oded Continuing Education Program
We are a “Beit Midrash” for those seeking on-going studies in a responsive, open, and co-educational community. The study of traditional Jewish texts is pursued in a warm congenial, intellectually stimulating environment, with a “Klal Yisrael” perspective and respect for different Jewish lifestyles and ideas. Our goal is Jewish literacy! Our subjects include a wide selection of contemporary and classical topics. Our classes meet daily Sunday through Thursday. Classes are ongoing so that students may join us at any time throughout the year. Choose one or more classes. See our current class schedule below.
Classes are on-going so you may join us any time. Language of instruction is English. Join us each morning for coffee before class. For the vacation schedule, see below.
