Adult Study Group
Everyone is welcome.
The Adult Study Group was established in 2011 to provide a forum for the sharing of ideas and information on religious and philosophical topics. The group meets monthly from October through June to discuss a wide range of topics from Biblical archaeology to issues of contemporary Jewish significance.
The group has about 15 regular members and others join particular sessions depending on their interests. While most of our members belong to the WRSSJCC, non-members are also welcome. New members are encouraged to join at any time. There is a nominal annual fee to help defray expenses. For more information, contact the group leader.
The Study Group is guided by the following principles:
- Sessions are intended to be spirited discussions by the whole group. They are not lectures.
- Topics may be proposed by anyone, but are normally adopted by consensus.
- Each session has a facilitator, usually the person who initially proposed the topic. The facilitator is responsible for identifying a set of readings which will be published on the Adult Study Group web page, and which participants are asked to read before the session.
- If a participant, and especially a new participant, has not had an opportunity to read the selections, then that person is welcome to come to the session more as a listener than as a contributor.
