About the Rubinger Adult Learning Institute

Congregation Ohev Shalom is proud to offer a variety of adult learning opportunities designed to bring life to your Judaism and meaning to your life. 

On the occasion of the congregation’s 100th anniversary celebration in 2018, the Rubinger Adult Learning Institute was named in honor of our esteemed Rabbi Emeritus Aaron D. Rubinger, whose passion for teaching Jewish theology, history, literature, and culture has engaged and inspired COS members since the beginning of his tenure in 1990, and continues today.
