Adult Education & Torah Study

197059_orig.jpg

At Temple Beth Torah, we are a community of lifelong learners.  In our Beit Midrash (house of study), we welcome learners of all ages who engage in our many, diverse, opportunities for joyful study. Might you have a subject to teach or an activity to facilitate, even if it is not typically “Jewish?”  Perhaps there is a class or program you would enjoy. Please contact education@bethtorah-fremont.org

Torah Study

You are invited to join Rabbi Zöe and fellow learners in an engaging, in-depth study of Torah. This class is open to anyone. Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary. We will meet virtually on Sunday mornings at 9:00am. Please contact Rabbi Zöe at rabbizoemccoon@bethtorah-fremont.org to RSVP, or if you missed the Zoom link in our weekly email. No fees or previous Torah education are required. All you need is an open mind and a desire to learn and enjoy. All are welcome!

The Torah is part of a wider Jewish Bible called TaNaka (Torah, N'viim [Prophets], and K'tuvim [Writings]). This year, we are going to focus on some of the books of the N'viim and K'tuvim including: the Book of Ruth, Job, Song of Songs, and Isaiah.

"What We Didn't Learn in Religious School" Series 

  • “Az... Atah Reformi? - Progressive & Reform Judaism in Israel"

    • Tuesday, 5/3 at 6:30pm

    • Many think that Jews in Israel fall into one of two camps: Religious and Secular… yet there is a flourishing and growing community of Jews who don’t stand by that binary. Join us as we learn about the challenges and the beauty that Reform and Progressive Jewish communities in Israel experience. Please register by Monday, 5/2 to receive the Zoom Link. $5 donation to the Education Fund suggested.
