College of Jewish Studies

Hosted by Rabbi Ed Feinstein

Free and open to the community
The VBS College of Jewish Studies is made possible by grants from the Lill & Jess Beim Family Keruv Fund and the Harold M. Schulweis Institute

Ever wanted to take a great course on Jewish culture, history and topical subjects, taught by experts? Well this is it. The VBS College of Jewish Studies offers Jewish adults an experience of university-level learning without homework, tests, sororities or football. Each year a different area of focus is selected, and our Rabbis, along with their guest speakers, provide us with insights and history that is just wonderful. And did we mention the cost - none!
