Day of Discovery is a unique opportunity for the entire Jewish community to discover and explore the richness, diversity, and joy of Jewish learning in Kansas City. Participants will have an opportunity to learn, study, and discover some of the community’s finest Jewish educators, rabbis, professors, experts and cantors who will lead sessions on a wide range of topics throughout the day beginning at 9:30 a.m. Nearly thirty classes will be offered.

This year’s program will take place virtually using ZOOM and our new and improved online platform. A limited number of adult and family-oriented sessions will be offered in person.
