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.

Want a refresher on the choreography of the Torah service?  Join Rabbi Tamar for this workshop to learn all the details of how to perform these rituals.
