 Adult Learning

Ongoing, robust engagement with Jewish tradition, ideas, history, and culture is a central tenet of the Beth Sholom community. We offer a regular schedule of weekly classes and Torah study sessions, complemented by Shabbat Lunch and Learn events, which attract Jewish thinkers from a broad range of fields.

Highlights of the year include:

  • Annual Shabbaton, in which our members become our teachers for a Shabbat of retreat, study, and community
  • The Rabbi Barry Schaeffer Scholar-in-Residence program, a series of lectures over Shabbat featuring a leading Jewish intellectual
  • Artists Beit Midrash, where members meet with a rabbi and artist for text study and then interpret that text in the medium of their choice
  • Annual lecture series including the Alfred and Rose Buchman Memorial Fine Arts Lecture,  the Ilana Sasson Memorial Lecture, and the M&M Holocaust Program
  • Book clubs and discussions - We have many book clubs including Hug Ivri (which reads Israeli novels in Hebrew);  the Sisterhood Book Club, and a new Israeli Book discussion which reads Israeli books in translation. We also participate in the One Book, One Community program
  • Each spring Congregations Beth Sholom and Rinat Yisrael come together for an Annual Community Beit Midrash where members learn together in hevrutah and a shiur is given by the congregations' rabbis.  This event rotates between taking place at Beth Sholom and Rinat Yisrael.
