Adult education is an important part of communal life at Temple Beth El. We believe that a lifelong thirst for knowledge and critical exploration of topics—biblical, traditional, and contemporary—help us maintain a vital connection to our Judaism and to each other. We aim to involve members of all ages in classes, lectures, discussions, and hands-on workshops.

Please browse our calendar for current learning opportunities organized by the many groups within our congregation.

For more information on our adult learning opportunities, please contact Director of Lifelong Learning Nicole A. Jahr, RJE.

Torah Study

Immerse yourself in the words and history of our people and make connections that are relevant to your life in our weekly Torah Study, offered every Saturday morning.

Israeli Film Series

We connect to Israel through monthly films and lively discussions.

Speakers, Classes, and More

Throughout the year we have two scholar-in-residence programs and additional speakers focusing on a wide range of topics. We offer Hebrew study and other classes and hands-on activities to help us engage in new avenues of learning.

Adult B’nai Mitzvah

Take this meaningful journey with others looking to reaffirm and grow Jewishly. For more information, contact Director of Lifelong Learning Nicole A. Jahr, RJE.


Conversion, or gerut, is a transformative, structured, and challenging, process that takes at least one year. On this journey, students study Judaism, participate in the life of Temple, and develop their own expression and commitment to our faith.
