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. Pirkei Avot 1
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, 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…

Other programs will include a 30th Anniversary Scholar-In-Residence weekend, a musical group, Jewish dessert baking, another class on meditation, a course on spirituality, another Trivia Night, more book reviews, and several guest-led programs. On several of the programs we will be partnering with Sisterhood, Men's Club, and other committees again.
It promises to be another wonderful year of learning at TBT!

Saturday Night Movies
Hava Nagila (THE Movie)
Saturdays 6:00 - 10:00 PM: 5/20 - Dinner, Havdalah, movie and discussion. Please remember to bring non-perishable food item for the Food Bank as an act of Tzadakah.
"It's to music what the bagel is to food - a Jewish staple that has transcended its origins and become a worldwide hit. Bob Dylan sang it. Elvis, too. And that's only the beginning when it comes to Hava Nagila. Follow the infectious party song on its fascinating journey from the shtetls of Eastern Europe to the cul-de-sacs of America in this hilarious and surprisingly deep film. Featuring interviews with Harry Belafonte, Connie Francis, Glen Campbell, Leonard Nimoy, Regina Spektor and more, HAVA NAGILA (THE MOVIE) takes viewers from Ukraine and Israel to the Catskills, Greenwich Village and Hollywood, using the song as a springboard to explore Jewish history and identity and to spotlight the cross-cultural connections that can only be achieved through music."
