Exploring the World of Judaism and Other Weekend Lectures


We offer a once-a-month lecture series, mostly on Sunday mornings, that is usually sponsored by either our Exploring the World of Judaism program (EWJ) or the Scientists in Synagogues program. Check the calendar for the details regarding upcoming events! A PDF about our September 2019, November 2019, and January 2020 events is also available for download.

Exploring the World of Judaism (EWJ)

We’re excited to invite you to the another year of Exploring the World of Judaism, adult learning specially designed by and for religious school parents.

These sessions conveniently meet on Sunday mornings while school-age kids are in Religious School, and they feature a wide range of topics. Each session is taught at an adult level by leading experts in the field. Each session is self-contained, requires no advance reservation, and is free to congregants. One of the great things about this series is that whether you’re a rabbi or someone who has never attended a day of religious school, you are certain to find these speakers engaging and interesting.

Exploring the World of Judaism, offered in partnership with Jewish LearningWorks, is an easy and convenient way for you to broaden your Jewish horizons, enrich your Jewish experience, and show your kids that Jewish education is important. 

If you would like to receive weekly email reminders and descriptions of each talk, please send your name and email address to and specify CSH/EWJ.

Exploring the World of Judaism is a partnership between Jewish LearningWorks and Congregation Shir Hadash, supported in part by the Newton and Rochelle Becker Charitable Trust, the Myra Reinhard Family Foundation, and Jewish LearningWorks.

Scientists in Synagogues

Scientists in Synagogues is a grant-funded program to offer Jewish communities the opportunity to explore interesting questions surrounding Judaism and science. Through this program we aim to highlight how Jewish scientists integrate their Judaism and their scientific work and foster a stronger dialogue between different concepts in science and Judaism.

This project is organized by Sinai and Synapses in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion (DoSER).
