Center for Jewish Life and Learning

 

Temple Kol Emeth is excited to have the Center for Jewish Life and Learning offering an array of different learning opportunities for adults (regardless of background or prior Jewish knowledge). 

Lunch and Learn: Everyday Holiness: The Jewish Spiritual Path of Mussar

Join Rabbi Gottfried on Mondays at 1:00 p.m. on Zoom for a guided discussion of Everyday Holiness: The Spiritual Path of Mussar by Alan Morinis. The purpose of Mussar is to find spiritual refinement through the study and practice of Jewish ethics. In each chapter, Morinis presents a particular characteristic of spiritual living, including humility, patience, gratitude and compassion.  Learn more (including where to purchase the book) and register here

Talmud Tuesdays

Join Rabbi Daniel Alter to discover the Talmud, the formative collection of stories and discussions that defined the post-Temple, rabbinic Judaism that continues today. Together, explore the foundations of our contemporary Jewish ethics, beliefs, and practices, as well as some tremendous tales about our ancient rabbis! This on-going class will be held on most Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 p.m. both at TKE and on Zoom. Register here to receive a weekly reminder and the Zoom link.  

Saturday Torah Study

Join Rabbi Gottfried on Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m. for Torah study and find inspiration from our tradition. Together we'll explore Jewish wisdom throughout the ages and discuss how it may be applicable and relevant to our lives today. Torah Study lasts about an hour and is accessible both in-person and on Zoom. Learners of all levels are welcome, and you do not need to know Hebrew to participate. Find meaning in our ancient texts and start the new year fresh with new perspective. Click the link below to join Torah Study by Zoom.
