Adult Engagement

At Central Synagogue

“Engage your heart, mind, and spirit at Central Synagogue.”

Central Synagogue works tirelessly toward a world in which Judaism is central to the lives of Jews everywhere, and is a profound and positive force for humanity. We believe that Judaism can and does change the world, and we are committed to ensuring it continues through the eternal miracle of the Jewish people. We know that a depth and breadth of Jewish engagement – including commitments to study (Torah), worship (avodah), and social justice (tikkun olam) – strengthens us and makes for a deeper and richer Jewish life.

Through our classes, retreats, support groups, trips, volunteer opportunities and all our other myriad programs, we aim to deepen our members’ connections to each other, to their community and to the ongoing story of the Jewish people. We invite you to explore what we offer and to partner with us on a journey of exploration and transformation.
