Adult Education

The study of Torah, Jewish history and tradition is a joyful, never-ending pursuit at Temple Beit HaYam. We have a full calendar of classes, study groups, speakers and workshops to fill the year.

Participatory Torah Study

The Torah Study Group meets following Shabbat Morning Service on most Saturday mornings. The format is open and lively under the leadership of our Rabbi. We read the weekly portion and accompanying commentaries. Our study often leads to freewheeling discussions about traditional Jewish observance, practices in contemporary Reform Judaism, personal spirituality, comparative religions, Zionism, and other ways in which Torah affects the world and our lives.

Adult Learning Classes

The Rabbi, Cantor, staff, and lay members of our community teach courses throughout the year. Courses offered have included: “Stuff Every Jew Should Know,” Adult Confirmation, Who Wrote the Bible, Jewish Theology, and Intensive Hebrew.

    Have you ever wondered why it seems like we spend so much time talking about the eight day miracle of Hanukkah and so little talking about the Maccabees and their revolt? Find out what happened after the story you already know that troubled the Rabbis so much, and explore how we can incorporate these historical truths into a modern understanding and celebration of Hanukkah. (NOTE: this class is for adults only!)
