Who is wise? The person who learns from everyone. – Pirkei Avot 4:1 

Led by Rabbi Pont and Dr. Beth Banks Cohn, this two year class is designed for those who did not have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah as a child. Participants have the opportunity to strengthen their Jewish identity and their connection to their faith and their heritage. Over the course of two years, the MJC Adult B’Nai Mitzvah program will engage you in a wide variety of Jewish topics, from holidays to history to theology and beyond, as well as learning how to read Hebrew.  Studies culminate in a special group B’Nai Mitzvah service. Please contact Rabbi Pont if you are interested in joining this class.

Sulam for Emerging Leaders is a six-session course, the goal of which is to encourage synagogue members to accept leadership roles at MJC. Participants study Jewish texts and rituals combined with contemporary issues and leadership practices, which together provide a recipe for meaningful Jewish living and leading. Rabbi Pont is the lead teacher, along with a member of the Executive Board who co-facilitates the sessions. The goal is for each participant to connect his or her personal story to those of others in the group and to the larger narrative of the Jewish people. Sulam participants are hand-selected by the Rabbi and members of the Executive Board as potential future leaders of Marlboro Jewish Center.

Traditionally, Rosh Chodesh – the beginning of each new Hebrew month – was considered a holiday for women. In Ancient Times, through the Middle-Ages, women did not work and joined together to enjoy each other’s company on this day. Now entering its 8th year, this is a special group of women who are interested in celebrating Rosh Chodesh together in that ancient tradition. They meet once a month, on or close to Rosh Chodesh. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the group has met exclusively over Zoom. It is their hope to begin meeting in person again in the Spring/Summer of 2022.

MJC welcomes all adults wherever they may be on their Jewish journey. We offer a range of religious, educational, social, and cultural activities and events to foster deep connections with our congregation, Torah, God, the people and the State of Israel.
