Adult Learning

Adult education courses
Studying women of the Torah

Jewish learning is a lifelong endeavor, and while many might focus on Jewish education for children and youth, Jewish learning is for every individual of every age. The clergy at Temple Beth Tikvah, along with our Director of Congregational Learning, community partners, and many volunteers work hard to provide opportunities for adults to explore Judaism with fellow congregants. Through classes and special events, Temple Beth Tikvah offers an array of learning experiences.

Tuesday evenings  February 13, 20, 27   at 7:00 pm

Two thousand years ago, in the Land of Israel, under the rule of Antiochus IV, Jews were limited in their practice of Judaism. Many mitzvot were banned, and if one was found to be practicing Brit Milah, Shabbat observance or Kashrut, it meant certain death. What was is it about protecting these particular practices that made the Maccabees, of the Hanukkah narrative, rise-up
and #Resist?

Join Rabbi Shuval-Weiner for a close examination of each of these ritual mitzvot. How they played out historically in the lives of our people and their meaning for us today as modern liberal Jews.

No RSVPs are required- pop in for one class or all three
