Barukh Habah: Welcome to the Stulman Center for Adult Learning
The Stulman Center is the definition of a learning community. We offer courses year round, from the frigid dark days of winter through the dog days of summer. Our course titles will intrigue you. Our teachers will inspire you. Our courses will challenge you to think in new ways about not only the history but also the future of the Jewish people.
Stulman offers classes on Torah, Hebrew, literature, history, and the arts. Each year, academics and rabbis visit Chizuk Amuno to offer lectures, teach classes, and serve as scholars-in-residence. The Stulman Center for Adult Learning provides a point of entry for everyone seeking the excitement of Jewish study in a community of committed, caring learners studying with dedicated, knowledgeable teachers. Learning is a way of enhancing our Jewish identity and connection to our tradition. Learning enriches our lives and promotes our spiritual growth.

The Munitz Library
Located in our Library Beit Midrash, the Munitz Library supports adult learning at Chizuk Amuno with a variety of books, periodicals, and videos of Jewish content available for loan.
Tuesdays – Beit Midrash Cohort of Teachers & Special Guests 7-8 p.m. Free Back by popular demand. This successful series which began last year invites a different teacher each week to guide us in study. A Beit Midrash is both a place and an experience. A Beit Midrash literally is a Home of Study, a room filled with Jewish texts traditional and modern. A Beit Midrash is also an experience in which traditional Jewish texts are studied to seek out meaning and understanding. Judaism imagines relationships between people mediated by text as groups of learners work together to wrestle with a text until it yields blessing.
This year our overarching study theme will be – The 613 Mitzvot
March 17 – Rabbi Josh Gruenberg – The Rebellious Child March 24 – Sara Wolkenfeld – Matzah The Mitzvah and the Mystery – Cancelled March 31- Dr. Martin Shuster – Knowledge of God April 21 – Rabbi Joel Seltzer – Teaching Your Children May 5 – Rabbi Rory Katz – Visiting the Sick May 12 – Rabbi Debi Wechsler – Writing a Torah
Beit Midrash is free and open the public. It is generously funded this year by the Hoffberger Foundation for Torah Study.
