The Fall 2022 Session starts on October 25

Our program brings together people who now have the time and the freedom to take classes for fun and who enjoy the real pleasure of continuing to learn.

The curriculum is patterned after successful national programs designed to meet the educational interests of the retired community.


Welcome to the Fall 2022 Session of The Learning Collaborative

Dear Student of The Learning Collaborative,

This is to inform you of The Collaborative’s upcoming fall 2022 semester.

After much consideration, The Learning Collaborative believes we can now safely hold onsite classes again (in addition to remote classes by Zoom). The decision was made by noting how Rockland and neighboring counties are now exhibiting much lower COVID rates, and even if one who has been fully vaccinated contracts the virus, the consequences are considerably less than in the past two and a half years. The onsite classes will again be at New City Jewish Center (NCJC) in large, well-ventilated rooms. They will be open only to fully vaccinated students and masks will be required except for the instructor and students asking questions or making comments. The lunchroom will not yet be available, so onsite classes will be held only in the morning.

Due to the timing of this year’s holiday observances of both our host, NCJC, and many of our students, we will not start the fall program until Tuesday, October 25. Session 1 will be five Tuesday classes from October 25 through November 22. Session 2 will be five classes: four on Tuesdays, from November 29 through December 20, and one final day on Thursday, December 22. (Tuition will be lowered to account for five-day classes instead of six.)

We believe that we are presenting a wonderful selection of courses for your learning and pleasure and we do hope to see you, whether in person, by Zoom, or by a combination of both. You will be receiving, via email, the catalog early next month. Registration will be opened on September 19th.
