Adult Education

ADULT EDUCATION AT BETH ABRAHAM ONGOING CLASSES

Weekly Text Study with Rabbi Bloom

Every Wednesday at 9:00am for an hour. Wonderful congregants meet to read selected texts and discuss their meaning. It seems that everyone has a different background making this a very rich discussion. We are going back to meeting in person soon – watch the TBA announcements for more information.

In this class we will continue looking at the weekly parasha in order to gain different understandings of the words and their historical context.

What did the ancient sages and commentators say about the passages? Can it be applied to modern life? All skill levels, abilities and desires are welcomed.

Rosh Chodesh Celebrations

This group meets monthly on the Monday closest to the Rosh Chodesh-9:30am to 11:30am. Contact Amy Tessler at abtessler@comcast.net  for locations as we meet at members’ homes on a rotating basis.

Learn on Sunday mornings

Adult Education classes continue through the year on Sunday Morning from 10-12.  There are an array of teachers and topics.  Watch the website, newsletter (Omer) and the weekly message for details.
