Jewish education is a lifelong process. Ongoing learning enables and empowers us to pursue spiritual meaning, ethical ideals, a connection to the divine, and the righteous path of Tikkun Olam.
At CEHV, we thrive on diversity. As a Reform community, we welcome all seekers, including non-Jewish people, all denominations of Jewish people, as well as those who are new to Jewish life, returning to the faith, and/or those who are simply curious. Our goal is to provide integrative, inclusive opportunities for scholarship and inquiry.
Learning at CEHV facilitates competency and comfort with Jewish tradition and liturgy in a warm, inclusive environment. We prioritize deep, cohort-based learning with strong attention to individual and collective spiritual needs. Our learners enter at all levels. Rabbi Yael's classes are interactive, experiential, rigorous, and wildly fun.
All of our classes are free and open to the entire community
Introduction to Judaism/Conversion
Adult B'nai Mitzvah
A preparation course for adults who are becoming b'nai mitzvah by being called to aliyah. The class culminates in a group B'nai mitzvah. Students include Jews by choice, congregants who were never formally called to the Torah, and those seeking a more meaningful and intentional connection to Judaism. Kingston
Trope is the melody or "flavor" (טעמים) of sacred readings learned through a system of musical notations that teach us how to chant from the Tanakh. This highly popular class is open to all. Kingston
Participants are led through a unique blend of Hebrew chanting, intentional breathing, and deep relaxation exercises to connect the mind, body, and soul during this unique- and uniquely Jewish- class. Rhinebeck
Weekly Torah Study
An in-depth study of the weekly Torah portion (פרשת השבוע) that focuses on exploring meanings within the ancient text as it exists in our contemporary times. This course is held in our tranquil Rhinebeck satellite. Rhinebeck.
