Adult Education

Congregation Or Tzion offers many learning opportunities for adults, led by our Clergy and community partners.

Adult Education with Rabbi Sussman:  The Ethical Life – How Judaism defines ethics and we apply ethics to issues of today.  We will identify different sources of ethics within Judaism and apply them to modern day issues. Issues will include food production, mass incarceration, fracking, modern-day slavery, war crimes, end of life care, disabilities and inclusion, surrogacy, and the parameters of lying. The best way to experience the course is to attend each session.  However, each day is stand-alone, feel free to drop in and try one.  We’d like to learn with you!
