At Beth El Temple Center, we believe in Lifelong Jewish Learning, and we strive, through our Adult Learning programs, to offer a wide range of learning opportunities to meet a variety of needs and interests for our congregants. We respect that everyone approaches Jewish learning from a different perspective, and we hope to help each of our members on their journey as an adult learner. To that end, we offer many types of programs, including traditional classroom study, speakers and lecturers, films, book discussions, Torah Study, Me’ah, Biblical and Modern Hebrew, monthly Table Talks, and many special events. Classes are taught by clergy, lay leaders, outside speakers, congregants, and visiting scholars who share their expertise and insights to inform, inspire and enrich our lives. We invite you to join us and try a program (or two!). We welcome all participants who come to learn.

Our upcoming programs are listed in the Bulletin and under Events on the website home page.  We welcome your participation – not only in attending events but also in helping to plan them!  The best way to ensure that we have programs that appeal to the widest group of congregants is for you to attend our meetings and give us your input!   We meet once a month.  Our meetings dates are on the temple calendar.  For more information, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Here's to a meaningful and enriching year of learning!  Come join us!
