The Lifelong Learning Committee is dedicated to bringing Jewish learning in many modalities to the Merrick Jewish Centre. There are classes ranging from learning Hebrew to Spanish, Bible Study to Jewish history, Art Projects to Zumba. In the past we have learned about the Bible as literature, studied the Holocaust, viewed Israeli films and prepared for our holidays. We continue to have virtual Hollywood on Sundays as well as a TV production class this year. We welcome your ideas and participation in this vital committee.
