Adult Education

torah tuesday

In Jewish tradition, there is a blessing for everything. When one sets out on a trip or journey they are to recite:

May it be Your will, our God and God of our ancestors, that You lead us in peace and help us reach our destination safely, joyfully, and peacefully. May You protect us on our leaving and on our return, and rescue us from any harm, and may You bless the work of our hands, and may our deeds merit honor for You. Praise to You, Adonai, Protector of Israel. (CCAR Daily Blessings App).

This blessing alludes to the unique challenges and opportunities that can present themself on a trip. It also may serve as a reminder to the traveler that journeys are exciting. There are so many things that we can learn and do.

In truth, our lives are journeys of a different sort. From cradle to grave we are blessed with opportunities to explore, learn, grow, and develop. While this is often most evident with children, adults are changing all the time.

It is our hope that this year you, an adult member of our community, will take advantage of the variety of learning opportunities at Temple Beth Hillel. You can study Torah, learn new ways to strike a balance, explore our character through the study of Mussar, read new books and discuss them, and so much more. I invite you to join us on this journey.

May we all have masa’im tovim, good journeys.

Rabbi Eleanor Steinman
