Adult Education

The Adult Education Committee plans programs for temple members to explore a 
lifelong pursuit of Jewish community, learning and spiritual growth. 

The Committee’s Vision Statement: We envision Adult Education that:better acquaints learners with Reform Judaism; encourages adult Jewish growth; enables learners to articulate Jewish beliefs, practices and history; models energetic lifelong learning for all ages; builds more knowledgeable “pray-ers.”

Unless otherwise noted, the links for Zoom classes can be found on the Temple Calendar.

First Shabbat in May!

A Life of Meaning: Living Judaism

Wednesdays, 6:00-7:15 pm  - Zoom link provided after registering

This 20-week course will be based on the book "A Life of Meaning: Embracing Reform Judaism's Sacred Path" by Rabbi Dana Evan Kaplan (CCAR Press 2018). Readings will be assigned in advance so the time we spend together on Zoom can focus on discussion and applying the concepts to our lives. While this is a course required for conversion to Judaism, it is also an interesting conversation for Jewish people to have: how does Judaism bring meaning to my life? This course is free for Temple members, and $180 for non-members. Contact Rabbi Harris directly for scholarship after registering. Register here.


Please note: on the third Wednesday of each month Lee Marrs will facilitate a discussion with people interested in conversion to Judaism. This discussion is in lieu of the regular class taught by Rabbi Harris and has a different Zoom link.

Thursday Lunch & Learn

Thursdays, 12:00-1:00 pm

Join Rabbi Harris and other Temple members to discuss recent news out of Israel and our relationship to world Jewry.

Monthly Mussar

First Saturday of the Month, 9:00 am

If you are looking for a meaningful morning conversation about Jewish values and living a mindful, spiritual life, then this class might be for you! We discuss the weekly Torah portion from The Mussar Torah Commentary: A Spiritual Path to Living a Meaningful and Ethical Life, edited by Rabbi Barry H. Block (CCAR Press, New York 2020). With or without reading the article in advance, everyone is welcome to join this conversation.

 

 

Third Shabbat at 3:00  (Se'udat Shleesheet)

Third Shabbat of the Month, 3:00 pm

Join us on Zoom to look ahead to the coming week’s Torah portion. We use an article in The Mussar Torah Commentary: A Spiritual Path to Living a Meaningful and Ethical Life, edited by Rabbi Barry H. Block. Even if you have not read the article in advance or you do not yet have the book, all are welcome.
