Torah Study

This 12 part program was created as a way to engage adults in a Jewish journey throughout their lives.  It encourages adults to take some time to reflect on where they are Jewishly and what they would like to achieve.
Donna Perlstein is facilitating the program with the support of a specially designed curriculum and wonderfully written brochures.  
The cost of the program is $36 annually and it is held on Sunday afternoons at 3pm.  Each participant receives the curriculum beforehand and prepares to participate in the meeting.
First meeting is October 8,2017 in the Temple Social Hall.
Please consider joining us!

At Congregation (~: Chai :~) we believe that Jewish learning is a lifetime project. Judaism offers a wealth of rich, deep, sophisticated ideas which are most useful for adults. Adults make decisions about raising children, choosing careers, medical care for themselves and loved ones, where to live and whom to love. Adults need the guidance of a religious system to help them through this maze of serious choices. Adults also experience fully the deep sorrow of loss and the great joy of true love. Jewish tradition can guide adults throug these emotional highs a lows.

Adult learning at (~: Chai :~) equips our lifelong learners to face the complexity of their lives armed with Jewish knowledge. Whether taking a Basic Judaism course, or an advanced Talmud seminar, our learners come away from the experience with a greater appreciation of Judaism's profound depths, and a greater understanding of how to lead an inspired life.

Please join us at any one of our course offerings this year. Membership is not required, and many of the classes have a nominal charge or are free!
