MRT's Adult Education Committee plans and presents programs and events that enrich our understanding of Jewish life in the 21st century, that inspire our desire to learn more about Jewish history through past and current writings and that encourage us to gain new insights as we delve more deeply into Torah . These goals are accomplished throughout the year with special programs.

This review of activities, current and past, offered by the Adult Education Committee, Adult Jewish Learning, is meant to encourage the MRT community and our neighbors to learn with us and to partake in the many interesting, inspiring, elevating programs that are presented throughout the year at MRT.
