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.

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…
