Registration 2020 Congregational Learning

Congregational Learning at Temple B’nai Abraham provides opportunities for learners of all ages to explore their identities as Jews. Through spiritual, academic and social programs and courses, opportunities for learning bring people together, helping to create a special sense of family and community. Dates and times are subject to change.

All classes will now be conducted over Zoom. If you cannot join us on Zoom, our classes will stream on Facebook Live on the Temple B'nai Abraham Facebook page. If applicable, please use this form to register for TBA congregational learning programs.

  • Courses

    The community is welcome to attend. All courses and programs are free, unless otherwise indicated.
  • Join the lively discussion of legend and lore, the ancient world and the modern one, the Jewish people’s feelings about its God, and God’s feelings about His people. Through our reading of the weekly portion, with the support of traditional and contemporary commentaries, we seek not only to understand the profundities of Torah, but also to understand the world and ourselves a little better. Parallel English/Hebrew texts will be used. Now via Zoom!
  • Ethics of our Ancestors (Pirkei Avot) All are welcome for a lively discussion and exploration of Pirkei Avot. Through a close study of Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz's Pirkei Avot: A Social Justice Commentary, each month we will explore life's wisdom through ancient texts and modern interpretations. Each session is independent so come to one, many or all.

    Thursdays, 11:30 AM-12:30 PM

  • This class is for all those seeking to rediscover their Judaism. It may be that you find yourself in a new chapter of life; it may be that you simply seek to learn more. Participants will help choose class topics as we explore what paths toward meaning Judaism can offer us. Topics may include Shabbat and holiday practices, life cycle events, mysticism, health, approaches to eating, teenagers, caring for aging parents, etc.

    This class will be taught via Zoom (a video conferencing tool, meaning that you can participate from wherever you are on your phone, tablet, or desktop!) Register here and then instructions to attend will be sent to you via email! Mondays, 8:00 to 9:00 PM. *Meet-up at Temple is planned for May 18.

  • We will dive into twelve fantastic Talmudic texts that deal with key issues confronting Judaism today, including such topics as pluralism, disagreement, revelation, and balances of power. No background in Talmud is necessary, and this course is taught using English translations. Steinsaltz Talmud set donated by Susan and Richard Kogan.

    Mondays, 12:30 to 1:30 PM via Zoom

  • Rosh Hodesh is the celebration of the new Hebrew month and is a special time for women. Sisterhood—The Women’s Connection welcomes all women to join in an evening of learning, warmth, and spiritual growth. The Spring Rosh Hodesh event features a Women’s Seder before Passover. Join us each or any month and feel the sisterhood connection. The Women's Seder is canceled!
  • The B’nai Abraham Book Group will have engaging, meaningful, and edifying conversations about different books each month.
