Adult Education

Ongoing Weekly Events and Classes for Adults

In the ideal world, Jewish education begins in childhood, however no two souls are alike and some never had such an opportunity. Until now, Jewish education has been pricey. But luckily, there is the Kollel.
The Kollel provides a range of Jewish learning options for the community.
We cover topics such as: language, spirituality, and religious and secular law.
We offer:

  • Kabbalah
  • Hebrew language
  • Jewish law
  • One-on-one instruction
  • Guest lecturers


Kollel On Campus

The Kollel creates a strong and vibrant Jewish community for students attending University in Vancouver. We offer everything from weekly Shabbat dinners to engaging Jewish educational opportunities. We offer Jewish cultural and social events and have become the place in Vancouver to connect to the community, our heritage, and other Jewish people. All Jewish students from all backgrounds and affiliations feel at home at the Kollel.
