Do not say, “I will learn when I have the leisure;
you may never have the leisure.”
Pirke Avot 2:5
At Temple Etz Rimon, we believe that the study of Torah is a lifelong process. Our commitment to members includes ongoing opportunities for Jewish learning. Our members find that the learning experiences we offer help to expand and enhance their knowledge, deepen their connection to Judaism, and build connections with other congregants. Classes and discussion groups provide relevant, educational and interesting programs to meet the growing needs of our community.
Join our community as we study and learn with Rabbi Sherman and each other. Courses are informal, intimate and inspiring, and offer a diverse range of topics. We have studied Torah, Hebrew, prayer, ritual, and customs. We have held movie nights, attended lectures and field trips, and offered Jewish parenting and holiday planning classes. We spent one year studying Musar, a spiritual journey that taught us to become more conscious of our thoughts, words and actions. We have also studied Jewish philosophers, Jewish Approaches to Prayer, God and Theology, and learned about Jewish Ethics and the Reform Jewish perspectives of God, Torah, and Israel. Last year we learned about our new prayer book, Mishkan Hanefesh.
Once a month, bring your dinner, study with friends, and stay for Shabbat evening services. Come for one class or attend all! Lifelong Learning classes are held on Friday evenings at 5:15. Check the calendar for dates. There is no charge for members of Temple Etz Rimon. Non-members are asked to contribute $18 per class.
