Lifelong Learning (Adult Education)

At Temple Beth Shalom, not only the kids are learning—adults are active learners, too!

As a community, we support a rich tradition of lifelong Jewish learning, where our adults and parents are just as engaged as our children. Come to a class or lecture opportunity to participate in a lively discussion, get to know other members of our community, and hopefully learn something new.

Many of our lifelong learning activities for adults are coordinated with regular education opportunities for children and young adults, to make it easier for the whole family to be involved. Look for lifelong learning events on Thursday evenings, the same time as Midrasha High, and on Sunday mornings, coordinated with Sunday school.

There are special education opportunities at other times, too, such as the Global Day of Jewish Learning (annually in November).

Starts Sunday, November 17 at 10:45 am With Rabbi Tamar Malino

Study the magnificent commentaries on the Torah and Talmud written by 11th century giant giante of Jewish thought, Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchai, otherwise known as Rashi.
