Cancellations

Weather-Related Cancellations:
Classes may be canceled for the following reasons:

• The building is closed due to inclement weather.

• The teacher cannot make it to the class due to inclement weather.

• The teacher cannot make it to the class due to illness.

The easiest way to see if a class is canceled to inclement weather is to call the building where your class will be held:
Adas Israel Synagogue, (202) 362-4433

Temple Rodef Shalom, (703) 532-2217

 

Illness related Cancellations
If a class is canceled due to teacher illness we will notify you as soon as possible. Class sessions canceled due to weather will be rescheduled as soon as possible and when possible at the same place, time and day of the week as the original session.

Enrollment-Related Cancellations We request that you pre-register and pre-pay for the classes so we can inform you of any potential changes to the class. If there are no pre-registrations 24 hours before a class, that class may be canceled. If fewer than five students show up for a class’s first session, the instructor has the option of canceling the class after waiting 15 minutes. (However, many instructors choose to proceed.)
If your class is canceled due to under-enrollment prior to the first session, we will make every effort to inform you if you have signed up. Cancellations will also be posted on our web site. All advance cancellations will be posted by 12:00 p.m. the day of a scheduled program. We suggest you check our web site after 12:00 p.m. the day of your program to confirm your course status.

 

For information about rescheduled class sessions, refunds or other matters, please call (202) 332-1221) or message the Study Center at jewishstudycenter@gmail.com.

The Jewish Study Center mourns the passing of Max Ticktin, z"l, one of our founders and a guiding spirit for many years. We were just one of the many, many institutions and organizations inspired or launched by Max in his long and fruitful life. His vision of a cooperative and participatory "Lehrhaus"--where teachers learn and learners teach, and where everyone has something to teach others--shaped us and carried through the many other institutions he shaped and the many lives he touched.

2. Bring a friend for free.   Bring along a new student who takes out a Jewish Study Center membership,  and you can take that evening’s class for free. 

3.  Special offer for those 30 and under: Pay $30 and you'll get a ticket good for any six classes this term! Just show it for admission.

The Jewish Study Center mourns the passing October 25 of Rabbi Janice Garfunkel, its friend and former director.
In cooperation with her family, we have agreed to establish a Rabbi Janice Garfunkel Memorial Fund, which will support a lecture or other educational event on a subject that held meaning for Janice in her life and work. The event will take place on the occasion of her yahrtzeit, either once or annually, as funds permit.
Those who wish to donate in her memory can do so via this website by clicking on DONATE or by filling out the Donation Form and sending it in.
