Adult Education

We each come to adult learning from different pathways. Some of us began our Jewish education as children and have continued to pursue Jewish knowledge throughout their lives, others, perhaps, ceased their formal Jewish education at as a B’nai Mitzvah, confirm and high school graduate, college student, or some other point in their lives, others have returned to Jewish education as parents or grandparents, and still others have only found the time to develop their love of Jewish learning as retirees. No matter where you are in your life or how much Jewish education you received or remember, Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El has a place to enter into a life long pursuit of Jewish knowledge.
Lunch and Learning:
Every Wednesday (excepting the summer weeks), we provide a complementary lunch following by program of study, learning, and spiritual growth. We feature local and visiting scholars, clergy, and communal educators.

Film Series:
Exploring the best in Jewish, Israeli, and cultural films and documentaries from around the world.

Exploring Judaism:
A 15 week beginners course with Rabbi Needleman covering Jewish thought, history, and holiday celebrations.

Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah:
Many of us were not blessed to celebrate Bar/Bat Mitzvah as a 13 year old. It’s never too late. Contact Cantor Goldman for details.

Yoga with Melanie

Wednesdays, 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.

The Psalms teach us that the human soul is the light of God, illuminating our hearts and minds, our actions and relationships, for the Divine to enter. Even the ancient sage Rambam said, “To know Torah you must care for the soul and the body; the soul is ranked first but the body comes first…” Please join us as we journey through a meditative, reflective yoga series with Melanie. Cost, $8 for Temple Members, $10 for non-members per class.
