Lifelong Learning

2019 – 2020 Schedule

Our Lifelong learning program is a fantastic way to continue learning about our tradition, our holidays, our holy texts and ideas even if you no longer are the age of a Religious School Student. Stay tuned to this page throughout the year for more information about additional courses.

 

HIGH HOLIDAY PREPARATION CLASS: BASIC BIBLICAL STORIES AND LESSONS ON FORGIVENESS

Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur are known for being a time to ask for forgiveness for all the wrong that you have done over the past year. Saying sorry seems like a basic skill that we learned when we were young, but there are hidden depths on how to apologize. Come and learn how our ancestors used the stories in the Torah as important lessons, teaching us how we can apologize and how we can accept the sincere apologies from other people. Over the month of September we will explore a variety of Biblical Stories in order to help prepare us spiritually for the High Holy Days.

We are offering this class twice a day on Thursdays, with one session in the morning and one session in the evening to make sure you have a chance to attend!

“Davka, Decaf & Dibbur” series with Rabbi Krublit

Meet Rabbi Krublit and others at Panera on Sand Lake Road on the third Tuesday of  each month at 9:15am. Upcoming dates: September 17th, November 19th, December 17th.

Join Cantor Doug Ramsay For Adult B’Nei Mitzvah Tutoring

If never had the opportunity at the age of 13 to demonstrate your readiness to accept the Commandments as your own, you do now.

Learn the skills to be comfortable on the Bima as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah (Son or Daughter of the Commandments): Lead the congregation in prayer, chant from the Tanach (Hebrew Bible), and teach Torah. Follow Cantor Ramsay as he guides the way to a fulfilling learning experience culminating in a Bar or Bat Mitzvah date of your choosing. No prior Hebrew required, but there is homework involved!
