Adult Education

Lifelong study is a cornerstone of Jewish life.  Yet study without action does not lead to wisdom, so at Shir Shalom we stress the essence of Jewish life where lifelong Jewish learning leads to action, social justice, and a place of deeper spiritual connection.   

It is said in Pirkei Avot that when two people study together, the Shechinah dwells among them. Learning together is an access point to the Divine. 

Torah Study Group
Every Thursday morning you will have the opportunity to study with friends and new friends. The Torah portion of the week is explored. The Torah never fails to bring wisdom and understanding to what is happening in our lives.

Adult Study Sessions
Monday Noon Zoom. In the past, we have studied with Professor Meron Medzini, who has served as Director of the Israel Government Press Office for Prime Ministers Levi Eshkol, Golda Meir and Yizhak Rabin. This forum also hosts congregants sharing their gifts on topics including Jewish baseball, environmental issues, the Jewish role in the development of nuclear power, how to bake matzah, Jewish humor, and all things great and small.

Adult Hebrew Classes
From not knowing the Aleph Bet to chanting Torah, this weekly study group has grounded our learners in Lashon Kodesh, the holy language of Hebrew. Learning to read Hebrew at any age is an extraordinary gift. Join our learning - another gateway to the Divine.
