Adult Education

Temple Emanuel encourages everyone in our community to engage in lifelong Jewish learning. Our goal is to help individuals discover and strengthen their connection to Judaism. Throughout the year we offer a wide variety of classes and speakers for adult learners.

Thursday Temple Teachings
Join us on Thursday evenings for a series of courses, lectures and discussions on wide-raning topics. Speakers include Temple Emanuel clery and guest scholars.

Book Club
Our book group is a warm and dynamic group of congregants who meet once a month to share and discuss good reads.

Adult B’nai Mitzvah & Introduction to Hebrew Class
This exciting study opportunity provides participants with the skills needed to read from our most sacred scroll. The course commences is in the Fall and is a rewarding experience for adults who have never celebrated becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. One hour of the class will be dedicated to learning about Jewish theology, prayer, Jewish holidays, life cycle events, traditions, customs, history, and value. The remainder of the class time will be dedicated to learning Hebrew. Upon completion of the course, class participants will help lead a Shabbat service along side the rabbi and cantor.
