Adult Education Programs
Temple Har Zion offers a variety of adult education opportunities.
An informed congregation is vital to a synagogue’s vitality and growth. By continuing education in adulthood, members can gain a deeper understanding of their faith and impart that knowledge to future generations.
There are several staples of the Temple Har Zion calendar:
- Rabbi Adir Glick teaches a weekly class exploring Biblical Topics. Each topic is introduced and discussed in-depth over several weeks, allowing students to gain a deeper understanding of stories, themes, and teachings. Classes meet Thursdays from 10 to 11 a.m. in person (with Zoom available for those unable to come in person). Contact Rabbi Glick at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- Director of Education David Schwartz teaches a weekly class covering a range of topics relating to Judaism, including holidays, prayers, Rabbinic wisdom and little-known biblical and Talmudic stories. Classes meet on Zoom Mondays from 8 to 9 p.m. and are available on Zoom. Contact David at email@example.com for more information or a schedule.
- Rabbi Glick and David Schwartz together teach a monthly ‘Interactive Jewish Book of Why’ on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., giving community members a chance to ask their questions and share their traditions about a holiday each month. This is available both online and in person. Contact David at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or a schedule.
- Vice President of Programming Suzanne Fournier teaches ‘Learn to Read Hebrew’ twice a month. Classes meet in person on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Contact David at email@example.com for more information or a schedule.
