Washington Hebrew Congregation


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 first class this fall is “The Big Jewish Questions: Jewish Thought in the 20th Century” taught by Rabbi Joseph A. Skloot. In this course, we will read the works of major American-Jewish philosophers and theologians as they consider important questions in Jewish life and thought, including those related to God, the Holocaust, Jewish observance, social justice, and Jewish-Christian relations. Among the authors we will consider are: Mordecai Kaplan, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Joseph Soloveitchik, Arthur Green, and Judith Plaskow. Together, we will read and discuss their works and their enduring importance for us as American Jews in the 21st century.

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.
