Adult Learning

Adult Learning at Temple Beth Tikvah

"Inspiring Jewish Learning Connections" is the goal of Adult Education at Temple Beth Tikvah. Throughout the year, we offer a variety of educational opportunities ranging from classical Jewish themes to contemporary enrichment activities. Programs like Scholar in Residence, Lunch and Learn, Shabbat and Sunday morning study sessions and topics of special interest are featured. We also invite learners to expand their Jewish awareness through activities such as yoga, meditation and art. Those of all ages, from young adults to seniors, are encouraged to attend.

Joshua ben Perachyah said:
Find for yourself a teacher and get yourself a friend;
and judge every man towards merit.

Jewish Learning is a lifelong endeavor. While many might focus on Jewish education for your children and youth, Jewish learning isn’t just for kids, but for every individual of every age.  Our clergy, Director of Congregational Learning,community partners, and many volunteers have worked hard to provide many opportunities for us to explore our Judaism along with our fellow congregants.

We hope that you will journey with us…

Please plan to bring a main meal for yourself and something yummy to share with the group (an appetizer or dessert). 

Everything should be vegetarian, dairy or pareve (no meat!) and must not be brought into the kitchen in order to keep the kitchen kosher.

In addition, please bring a non-perishable food item for the Food Bank as an act of tzedakah.

August's  Movie - "Yentle" 

Rebbe Mendel (Nehemiah Persoff) is a single father who teaches the Talmud, a sacred text of Judaism, to the boys of his small Polish town. Behind closed doors, he also instructs his daughter, Yentl (Barbra Streisand), despite the fact that girls are forbidden to study religious scripture. When Yentl's father dies, she still has a strong desire to learn about her faith -- so she disguises herself as a male, enrolls in a religious school, and unexpectedly finds love along the way.
