Temple Beth Elohim is about lifelong learning.
Jewish learning is a lifelong endeavor, and our programs engage learners from preschool through adult, from novice to expert. Taught by members of our clergy, education team, local scholars and religious school faculty, TBE's learning opportunities include Hebrew language, holiday, and text study; parenting and family programs; "how-to" workshops; to interfaith dialogue; and more.
We know that there are many ways to learn and that learning happens best when it is connected with experience. Our learning programs integrate formal and informal learning, joining academic and experiential approaches. Our youth programs offer students a multitude of ways to connect to Judaism through a curriculum includes art, science and technology, and community service opportunities. Our adult learning programs include peer-to-peer learning opportunities, as well as partnerships with many committees within the congregation, fostering relationships through learning.
