Eitz Chaim - Lifelong Learning

Adult learning plays an important part in Temple Sholom life. Our program includes both ongoing classes, special programs and lectures. Rabbi Abraham offers two different weekly classes, with topics that have ranged from "Jewish Texts, New and Old” to “A Jewish View of the Qu’ran.” In addition, Adult Hebrew classes are offered, including basic reading, prayerbook Hebrew, and Jewish text. The Temple also offers Adult B’nei Mitzvah classe that teach how to read Hebrew, learn prayers and read from Torah. The program culminates in the class reading Torah and celebrating becoming B'nei Mitzvah together. There are also opportunities with Rabbi Abraham for individual study or in pursuit of conversion.

Our Adult Education Committee provides our members with a wide variety of programs. On Sunday evenings, outside experts come in to give lecture, teach a class, or run a workshop on a topic of Jewish interest. There have been monthly group discussion groups, and scholar in residence weekends. Additional program include musical concerts and movies. The range of programs provides something for every taste.
