LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

TorahLunch Classes

Weekly classes are conducted at an ever-growing number of workplace locations with a light deli lunch served. Classes typically focus on the Torah portion of the week, with generous segments of the class devoted to basic Jewish philosophy, theology and law. After-hours classes are available for traders and others as well.

Tutorials - Private & In-Home

Jewish education is a continuing commitment for persons of all ages. We understand how difficult it can be to fit serious learning into your busy schedule; that's why we offer private tutorials (on the phone, is fine) and in-home sessions, which allow you (and your family) an opportunity to become literate Jews.

Shabbat & Jewish Holiday Celebrations

Throughout the year, Shabbat and the Jewish holidays are unique opportunities that allow us to take a break from our ordinary lives and enter "spiritual time". The holiday celebrations come alive at CFR with enriching (and fun) programs the entire family will enjoy. Rejoice with us as we unite with our Jewish heritage.
