Adult Education

Temple Emeth’s Adult Education program provides an abundance of opportunities to give our hearts to learning.

There is no charge for Temple Emeth members to participate in any of our programs (except those that provide meals, or are trips). Some courses may require books and/or other materials, for which there may be a charge. There is a fee for non-members of Temple Emeth, based on the specific program, plus book or material costs.

Our 2019-20 Adult Education schedule is in the works. Programs begin in October. For more information, contact adulteducation@emeth.org or the Temple office at 201-833-1322.
