Expand your appreciation of Jewish life and culture and join the hundreds who have participated in WHC’s unique adult education program. We offer a wide array of classes taught by knowledgeable and passionate instructors from Washington Hebrew Congregation and beyond. WHC Academy meets on Monday nights, from 7:15 – 9:15 pm with coffee, a light snack, and time to socialize.

Our second class this fall is “Nationalism, Anti-Semitism, and the Jewish Community: Historical Lessons for Today” taught by Executive Director Steve Jacober. Jewish life today was shaped in during the late-19th and early-20th centuries during the waning days of Europe’s great empires. This course will focus on the geopolitical shifts during this period with a special emphasis on the rise of nationalism in Europe among non-Jews and Jews (i.e. Zionism), as well as anti-Semitism. We will focus on how Jewish communities have responded to social changes in turbulent times.

The fall semester of WHC Academy is $25 for WHC members and $54 for non-members. Learn more and register online at whctemple.org/WHCAcademy.
