Check back soon for descriptions of our fall classes!
Shabbat Torah Study, Rabbi Rothbaum, Leader Rabbi Mike will lead us in Shacharit at 9:45 a.m., followed by study and discussion of the weekly parsha at 10:30 a.m. Various translations and commentaries are employed. Rabbi Mike emphasizes discussion. All viewpoints and perspectives are welcome. Shacharit and Torah study are not scheduled during the months of July and August.
Wednesday Bible Study, Waky, Leader On Wednesdays when Hebrew School is held (see the Calendar), 1:15‑2:15 PM. No registration required. A group of adult students has been studying Jewish texts for several years. We’ve made our way through the Torah, spent a year working on Pirke Avot and are back to the Tanakh (Bible), continuing with the Book of Judges and into the books of Samuel. All are welcome; the chevruta style of learning, where we all share our thoughts offers a wide perspective on the texts. No previous knowledge is required nor is Hebrew a necessity.
To register, or for more information for any class, contact Ezra Habif at (978) 263-3061 or email@example.com. Please register as early as possible for all events and classes, even if there is no charge.
It is the policy of CBE Adult Education that no one will be turned away due to financial hardship. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Adult Education at Congregation Beth Elohim involves a wide spectrum of life long opportunities to study. Our programming includes continuing curricula in Hebrew language, history, liturgical music and text study. We offer mini courses taught by congregants, our Rabbi and local academicians of the highest caliber.
Longer commitments engage the learner in Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah and Me’ah, 100 hours of study co-sponsored by Hebrew College and Combined Jewish Philanthropies. Highlights of our year include an entire Shabbat and more with a Scholar-in-Residence. Also, together with the Family Education Committee, a weekend long engagement with special authors as a part of our Am HaSefer program.
We also invite you to hear ongoing speakers concerning current events focused on Israel and the Middle East. Whether you want to come to a 2 hour topical lecture or follow your dream to spend a couple of years preparing for your mid-life “coming of age” opportunity to publicly read from Torah, the Adult Ed program has something to stimulate your spiritual and intellectual interests.
