Information about FALL 2014

Our Fall 2014 classes will begin in early September, and registration will open by the end of July. Most of our fall classes will run in two 6-7 week fall sessions (Sept/Oct and Nov/Dec), and registration for both fall sessions will open at the same time.  Because of the fall Jewish holidays, our Wednesday afternoon, Thursday, and Friday classes will run in one longer 10-week session, with a few weeks skipped for the holidays. Below is a list of classes currently planned for fall.

Registration for all fall classes will open by the end of July. Please email MiriamS@washingtondcjcc.org if you would like to receive an email when registration opens.
