In any city with a large Jewish population and a few good universities, you’ll find abundant opportunities for adult Jewish education. That is, if you know where to look for them. Unfortunately, many are well-kept secrets, all too often featuring top notch speakers addressing half-empty rooms. It can be easier to find longer classes or seminars, but these don’t necessarily mesh with our schedules or commitments. If we only knew about all the one-off lectures, panel discussions, book talks and conferences covering a broad range of subjects, often at minimal cost.

Those in NYC can now choose from a wide variety of year-round offerings, thanks to Wandering Jews and Limmud NY. Each month we provide a free curated listing of some of the best lectures and conferences chosen from a wide variety of sources. Subscribers and those who visit the website can access information on these local events, with links to registration. Most use the service to identify programs to attend, while some just like to keep up with current issues, new books, and recent research.

Programs cover a wide range of topics: from Jewish history, literature, Israel, and anti-Semitism, to Torah, Talmud, and Jewish law, from kabbalah to comedy to cooking, and more. Some programs offer live streaming, and many can be accessed afterwards on the provider’s website.
