Lifelong Learning

We offer a variety of adult learning opportunities throughout the year -- from ongoing classes to individual programs and guest speakers. Everyone is welcome to join us; open to the community.

Upcoming offerings by day of the week include: 



Torah study: A spiritual journey through the Book of Numbers
Every Monday in June 2019 from 10:00 am - 11:00 am at TI
Led by Rabbi Michael Alper
Join Rabbi Michael to explore deep, personal, and powerful portions of an eternal text that resonates with all who are seeking greater meaning and healing in their lives. The sacred scroll of Bamidbar (Numbers) begins at Mount Sinai and ends as the Israelites prepare to cross the Jordan River. The book recalls the epic trials, tragedies, and transformations that the Jewish people go through as they leave the oppression of Egypt and move forward to fulfill their destiny as a nation.



Life in Transition
First Tuesday of each month: February 5, March 5, April 2, May 7, June 4, July 2 and August 6
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm at Temple Israel
Are you dealing with the loss of a loved one, divorce, job change, retirement, or a serious illness? Join us for an open and enriching conversation where we'll discuss a healthy grieving process, resolution, and adjustment strategies for moving forward and finding fulfillment. The group is facilitated by Jan Nykin, LCSW, a psychotherapist in private practice with a Para-Rabbinic certification. 

Exploring Life's Journey
Third Tuesday of each month: February 19, March 19, April 16, May 21, June 18, July 16, and August 20
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm at Temple Israel
What is your purpose in life? Do God and spirituality play a role and how do you fit into the larger universe? Join us for this exciting group discussion as you connect with Judaism, spirituality, and transform into your highest self. The group is facilitated by Jan Nykin, LCSW, a psychotherapist in private practice with a Para-Rabbinic certification.
