Adult Education

Temple Shalom encourages and invites participation with life-long learning experiences. We offer a range of adult education opportunities for congregants and non-members that utilize internally developed curriculum as well as National Jewish Outreach Programs. Program schedules are published in anticipation of classes being offered for fall/winter and winter/spring learning sessions. Classes are offered on the basis of instructor availability and interest expressed by congregants. Examples of the adult programs frequently offered include:

  • Crash Course in Hebrew
  • Crash Course in Jewish History
  • Siddur “GPS” (Navigating the Shabbat morning service)
  • "They Never Taught Me That in Hebrew School!"
  • Introduction to Judaism
  • Introduction to Kabbalah
  • Feeding the Jewish Mind, Body and Soul
  • Ethics courses
  • Examining Contemporary Social Issues Through a Jewish Lens
  • Melton Adult School and Graduate Programs  
  • Torah Study - Tuesday mornings - 9:30 am.  The study is progressive, ongoing and extensive, but is not specific for the Torah Portion of each week. Open to Members of Temple Shalom, only.
  • Other programs announced throughout the year (join our weekly mailing list to be informed)

Member and non-member pricing is available for all educational classes.

Have an Educational Program Idea?

Congregants frequently suggest topics of special interest. In fact, past adult education programs such as, "Why Do We Say Things In The Liturgy That We Don't Mean?" and Empowering the Family: Confronting Anti-Semitism came to us through a suggestion from a Temple member.

Suggest your idea here.
