At Congregation Beth Tikvah, we go to extraordinary lengths to make sure that our members understand the Why of Judaism in addition to the What. Our goal is to empower people to connect as they feel comfortable. Our diverse adult education programs are designed to appeal to those of us who are just starting to explore Judaism as well as those who have already acquired a body of knowledge. For example, we offer courses on Hebrew reading as well as in-depth studies of Torah A few of our programs are highlighted below. For more information about our varied adult education offerings, including book discussions, Lunch and Learn, Donuts and Daven and Sunday morning breakfast discussions with our Rabbi Emeritus, Gary Gans see our Calendar of Events.
- Torah Study – An in-depth and lively text study led by Rabbi Nathan and Cantor Lebovic, moving word-by-word through the Torah on Saturday morning, prior to Shabbat services.
- Tea and Torah – This weekly afternoon program takes place with Rabbi Nathan, from October through May.
- Sendrow Series – Named after the late Beth Tikvah congregants Florence and Arthur Sendrow, who were dedicated to lifelong learning. This series takes place four times each year and brings in outside speakers and educators to enlighten congregants on subjects that pertain to Jewish values.
