Adult Education

torah tuesday

This year we are offering exciting learning opportunities that will allow each person to delve into our Temple Beth Hillel theme, ‘Share Your Story’. Whether it is your own personal experience, the stories of our shared tradition, or stories that we will learn about or uncover possibly for the first time, we are excited to listen and learn from one another. There are many new learning opportunities as well as TBH standard classes, including Book Club, Torah Tuesdays, and Basic Judaism. The first year of the two-year Adult B’nai Mitzvah class will begin.

There are also several brand new learning opportunities and classes. This year, TBH is partnering with other San Fernando Valley synagogues to participate in a workshop series from the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America. This series, entitled “Justice and Righteousness: The Ethical Agenda of the Jewish People,” is an amazing opportunity to learn from cutting-edge scholars including Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman, Dr. Tal Becker, Dr. Yehuda Kurtzer, Yossi Klein Halevi and Dr. Ruth Calderon. TBH will host the November 15 lecture taught by Dr. Ruth Calderon. Please save the date, and plan on joining us for one or all of these lectures!

TBH is also traveling the world this year. I hope you will consider joining me on a humanitarian mission to Cuba themed “Before Time Catches On,” from April 12-20, 2016. We will spend eight days and seven nights between gorgeous Havana and the bay in Cienfuegos exploring culture, food, music, architecture and Cuba’s small but tenacious and vibrant Jewish community.

There are so many amazing learning opportunities for adults at TBH this year. I hope that you will find the course or courses that interest you and also stretch yourself to explore a subject that is new to you. I cannot wait to share stories with each of you.
