Beginning in October,  Temple Emunah in Lexington offers a broad range of adult education courses open to the entire community. The Adult Education options, often collaborative programs, touch on the spiritual, the mundane, and the controversial, and the practical. Offerings range from timely and relevant lectures and discussions, like the Moral Limits of Markets offered by renowned philosopher and teacher Michael Sandel (through New Center for the Arts and Culture, at Temple Isaiah) to a two-year foundation in Jewish Learning and Hebrew lessons, for any level.  Some programs are free; others have nominal fees.  For full descriptions and details check

A two-year adult B’nei Mitzvah class begins this fall.
