Adult Education

Welcome to our House of Study, our Beit Midrash. Ours truly is a “Congregation of Learners” where novices and scholars join together for study, discussion and community-building.

Saturday Morning Torah Study  
Every Saturday at 9:15am
(No previous Torah Study or knowledge of Hebrew is needed - dress is casual - attend once, once in awhile or every week)
The cornerstone of our learning is our Saturday morning Torah Study. We discuss the weekly Torah portion and have a lively conversation as we relate this ancient text to our daily lives.

Lunch & Learn  
Once a month on Tuesdays from Noon-1:30 PM
(Feel free to bring your lunch. Snacks & drinks will be provided.)
