Classes are held 4 to 5 times a week in the Synagogue or in members' homes. In the past they've included subjects such as
- Life Cycle Events (e.g., welcoming a new child)
- Adult Bar and Bat Mitzvah
- Introduction to Judaism
- Introduction to Talmud
- Medieval Torah Commentators: Rashi and Rashbam
- Jewish Views of Conflict Resolution
- A History of the Middle East in the 19th and 20th Centuries
For a number of years, the Institute for Conversion and Outreach Education classes have been held at USH, led by Rabbi Scheinberg. The 24-session "Introduction to Judaism" classes, which also serve to partially fulfill requirements for conversion to Judaism are held at USH. For more information, please contact the Rabbi.
We are excited to sponsor the "My Jewish Neighborhood" project, for which our synagogue has received funding from the Legacy Heritage Foundation. This project brings Jewish communal gatherings into USH members' homes in your local neighborhood. We divided Hoboken and surrounding areas into six neighborhood groupings. In the 2009-2010 year there were a variety of events-including a Havdalah service with dessert, a Shabbat dinner, a second Shabbat dinner celebrating Lag B'Omer, and an art project, which took place in each neighborhood. For 2011-2012, we are starting with a Sukkah Hop, celebrating sukkot in sukkahs around the neighborhood. For more information, contact us.
For a complete list of adult education and other Synagogue activities, see the calendar.
