The Rochester Kollel - Adult Education Programs

Since its beginning, the Rochester Kollel, hosted by Temple B'rith Kodesh, has welcomed thousands of adults to a wide variety of Jewish study classes. 

Most classes are 4 to 8 weeks in length, 1 to 1½ hours per session, and topics range from classical text study to Jewish ethics, God and spirituality, Hebrew, literacy, comparative religion and more. 

Participants have come from the membership of Temple B’rith Kodesh, other area synagogues, churches, the Islamic Center, and the general Rochester community.  Some Jewish participants have no synagogue affiliation and others join Temple B’rith Kodesh as a result of the classes.
