The Adult Education Committee proudly presented "Light Against the Darkness" on Sunday, December 13, with Rabbi Francine Roston from Glacer Jewish Community/B'nai Shalom in Whitefish, Montana. She shared what she and her community experienced when they were harassed and cyber-terrorized by Neo-Nazis across the country. She discussed how Hanukkah's message of spiritual resistance inspired her community and how it can guide us all in the face of antisemitism and hatred. 

Our Zoom audience stretched across the United States and across the ocean to London.  It was an important message for all to hear. 

Thank you to Rabbi Gelber for bringing the light all year to the Habonim community and to Cantor Halev for this terrific shot of our Community-wide candle lighting that was so inspiring.

Chanukkah Sameach!

Adult Education

At Habonim, education isn't just for kids!  We offer a wide variety of programming designed to bring the community together in lifelong learning about Judaism, New York, and the greater world. Exciting guest speakers and our own members cover a range of topics, including:

  • Torah
  • Jewish life
  • Ritual
  • Arts, entertainment, popular culture

Past programs have addressed New York architecture, immigration, policing, the Ten Plagues and Medicine, Israel, and the Middle East. The goal is for the learner to not only look within, but also to deeply engage with the surrounding world.
