TBEI Adult Education

 

Lifelong learning is a dynamic part of congregational life at Temple Beth El Israel. Throughout the year, the Adult Education committee actively functions to develop programs (and formal courses) designed to inspire participants to become better informed Jews. Some topics that congregants will explore, as Adult Education offerings evolve, include:

History of the Jewish People

Classes in basic Hebrew

Torah and Talmudic studies

Current events as they pertain to the State of Israel, as well as to Jewish communities throughout the world

Holocaust studies

“Globetrotters” – Jewish Heritage travel destinations

Ethical issues (e.g., abortion, stem cell research, LGBT issues, end-of-life decisions)

Interfaith relations and dialogue

Film studies and book reviews relating to Jewish topics of interest

Understanding Antisemitism in today’s world
