Adult Education At Temple Bnai Israel

Learn About & Celebrate The Breadth of Jewish Culture

From our in-house musical performances to our monthly “Bagel and Bible” Torah study breakfasts, we offer many opportunities for our members to learn about and celebrate the breadth of Jewish culture. Other offerings include adult education classes in basic Judaism, prayer, and introductory Hebrew; Book Club meetings; programs and speakers; and field trips to places and events of Jewish interest.

We also maintain a library from which members may borrow books, and other material. Each year brings new events, services, and community activities. We welcome new ideas.

INTRODUCTION TO JUDAISM – A 12 session community course, begins January 9, 2018.  All are welcome. 

Spread the word to family and friends, Jewish or not, and anyone else you think would like to learn about the rich, multi-faceted heritage of Judaism and all it has to offer.  Or perhaps you would like to take this course to gain a deeper understanding of Judaism. This course is ideal for those who may or may not have been raised in a Jewish home, but are seeking a better understanding of the basic Jewish spiritual and ethical practices, philosophical understandings, and cultural activities.  We will also learn about the Jewish activist tradition of tikkun olam (repairing the world).  We welcome individuals who may not be currently engaged in congregational life, and who may not be Jewish, but are curious about what Judaism has to offer.


¨  if  you are a curious person who would like a better understanding of the rich, multi-faceted heritage of Judaism.

¨  if  you want to become more involved in repairing the world (tikkun olam) or learning  about the ethical and philosophical underpinnings of  Judaism.

¨  also, if you are not currently engaged in congregational life, but want to understand the ancient, yet ever contemporary, Judaic traditions.

Classes are on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month through June, 2018 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  There is no fee. Donations are appreciated. Please pre-register by e-mailing: or call 860-423-3743.
