ADULT EDUCATION / LIFELONG LEARNING

Regardless of your level of Jewish knowledge, there are exciting learning opportunities at Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah. From Jewish cooking to text study, from learning about Jews in far flung lands to learning about the siddur (and so much more), Adult Education strives to bring a variety of programming to our congregation to satisfy the diverse learning interests of our members. Joining a class is a great way to feel connected to your shul community.

The Florence Melton School

Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah has established a relationship with the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning. Check out the Melton School website for more information.

Classes with our Clergy

Rabbi Tucker’s Wednesday morning Bible Class: The Bible with James Kugel
Most Wednesdays from 10-11am beginning October 10
This course will be based on the book How to Read the Bible by Dr. James Kugel, a Harvard professor and practicing Jew who approaches Torah from a critical, modern perspective often bringing radical new readings to familiar stories. Each week we will read excerpts from parashat hashavua (the weekly Torah portion), supplementing them with Kugel’s commentary. All are welcome – no previous background required! 

Learn to chant with Cantor Roytman
Thursday evenings Oct. 11, 18, 25 & Nov. 1, 8, 15
Fun and interactive way to learn the cantillation of the Torah. Ability to read Hebrew is required. All ages welcome!

Rabbi Kensky's class on Comparative Jewish Theology taught through the pages of the Siddur
Nov. 13, 20, & 27 from 8:00 - 9:15 pm
We will explore how the theological stances of the major religious movements in American Judaism are reflected in their respective siddurim. We will examine both the broad structure of the service as well as individual prayers, including the Morning Blessings, the Shema, the Amidah and the Torah service. Special attention will be given to recent developments in Conservative liturgy.
