Adult Education

At Edinburgh Hebrew Congregation we provide a range of adult educational activities for all ages and abilities, open to members and non-members alike.

At present all classes are held on zoom. The groups are small, informal, friendly and interactive. For Modern Hebrew please contact us. For all other classes please contact the Rabbi.
