West End Synagogue is committed to adult study of Jewish sources, history, and cultural expression in its many forms. Adult education programs and activities focus on the vital areas of education, community, and outreach:

  • Education: Working to deepen the congregation’s Jewish knowledge at all levels.
  • Community: Involving members, enhancing interaction among WES populations, and enriching the communal life of the congregation.
  • Outreach: Providing opportunities for the community at large to enhance Jewish life and promote the values of Reconstructionism.

  • Single-session lectures and courses, as well as longer series on selected topics by our rabbi, cantor, and invited speakers.
  • A variety of musical, theatrical, and literary programs.
  • Scholar-in-Residence and Artist-in-Residence programs that bring prominent figures in Jewish thought and culture to West End Synagogue.
