Jewish Adult Education Centre

The new semester begins on 14 September 2020

Jewish Adult Education Centre

The Jewish Adult Education Centre is open to anyone with an interest in Jewish culture and history. Classes, study days, lectures, readings and excursions on specific or general subjects are as much a part of the range on offer as Hebrew and Yiddish language courses, seminars in Jewish religious philosophy, and cookery or dance classes. Students particularly enjoy the excursions, which can be small-scale, local affairs that trace Jewish life in the area, or trips further afield to other European countries. The Jewish Adult Education Centre also cooperates with other adult education organisations, running a three-way dialogue with other faith-based providers and with the Adult Education Centre in Frankfurt.
